How to Make Healthy Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie

If you’re looking for a guilt-free alternative to candy, you’re going to want to whip up this peanut butter protein shake! It features just four simple ingredients and comes together easily in the blender. All you need is:

  • One serving of Nutrisystem Chocolate Shake Mix
  • One Tablespoon of your favorite creamy peanut butter (We love all-natural peanut butter with no added sugar!).
  • One cup of unsweetened vanilla soy milk (Feel free to swap in low-fat milk instead!).
  • Five ice cubes (Add more as needed to adjust the thickness!).

Just blend all of this together in your blender, grab a glass and sip away those candy cravings! We think it would make a delicious dessert or snack, but could also double as a breakfast for a sweet start to your day.
