chocolate peanut butter blizzard

I haven’t had a blizzard for the longest I can remember but this chocolate peanut butter blizzard version is nothing but healthy which makes it way better when craving such items.

Have you had store bought blizzards before? I actually had when I first moved to the US from Spain which was a long time ago. I thought they were the greatest things but none the less I though they were extremely sweet.

My version includes chia seeds, protein powder, dates and ice, which makes this blizzard a much healthier version. I also used Silk Soy Milk. I choose organic unsweetened plain soy milk for my blizzard but you can use any Silk soy version of your choice. The peanut butter adds extra protein and because I used 60% content cacao bar the sugar content of this chocolate peanut butter blizzard was also lower.

You can make your blizzard any flavor of your choice. A strawberry version would also work great.

I like using Silk soy milk while making smoothies, adding it to my granola, cereal and some of my no bake cake crusts. Instead of butter using soy milk decreases the fat and calorie content and makes my crusts healthier. One of my favorite soy milks to use is the organic unsweetened plain version, however, all the varieties are great.

I hope you get to make this chocolate peanut butter blizzard. Forget purchasing store bought versions that contain tons of fat, sugar and no nutrients at all. Homemade is always best.

Enjoy!
