Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

Do you ever get introduced to a clever new recipe and you think…

How the heck did I not think of this??

I had this experience this weekend when I saw the latest video post from our friends Olivia and Hannah from Biggest Loser.  I’ve mentioned many a-time that I am HUGE fans of these ladies, and I find them SO inspiring!

They’ve started posting a lot of videos on YouTube, as well as maintaining a blog called MyFitspiration.  If you haven’t checked them out yet, click here to see what they’re about.

Now, when I saw on Twitter that they had posted a PB and Chocolate Hot Chocolate this weekend… I literally gasped.  When I watched the video and found out that they used my favorite secret ingredient PB2, you know what… I gasped again.

By the way, I had shared previously that PB2 was available online… I’m finding it my local grocery stores now.  I’ve seen it at Whole Foods Market and at King Soopers/Kroger.  Start looking for it locally… it’s out there!

Being Picky McPickerson, of course… I decided to make some modifications, and I came up with the following UH-MAZING and UH-MAZINGLY EASY peanut butter hot chocolate.  Thanks, Olivia and Hannah, for this delicious Fitspiration!  I heart you both!  xoxo

Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

Inspired by Biggest Loser’s Hannah and Olivia 

Serves 1

INGREDIENTS

1 packet Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate

8 oz. water

1 Tbsp. PB2 Peanut Butter Powder

INSTRUCTIONS

1.  Fill a mug with 8 oz. of water.  Heat in the microwave until boiling.

2.  Pour contents of the hot chocolate packet into the mug.

3.  Add 1 Tbsp. of PB2 to the mug, and mix well.  Note:  I used a small whisk to combine the ingredients.

4.  Drink your tasty new drink, and enjoy!  Note:  I moved my cocoa into a new mug so it would look better for this picture.  In doing so, I noticed all the PB2 didn’t quite combine, but it definitely gave a PButtery flavor to the hot chocolate.  At the very bottom though, you might have some PB2 residue.  Don’t let it deter you, as it tastes delish!

    I understand totally where you’re coming from. Food is, from our earliest moments, associated with comfort and love. Food is everywhere, and some of the best tasting and easiest to find is also the cheapest… and worst for us. Top that pudding with a big pile of emotional eating, and you have one big messy snack.

    I am fighting back against years of emotional eating, including reaching for a snack when I get bored. After all, I didn’t hit 300 pounds by eating apples and running. What I try to do now is exactly what you did, simply realize what I’m doing and stop it, redirect my attention to another activity, and if I really am hungry, eat something healthy as opposed to junk.

    Good for you for recognizing the issue AND taking action. Although many people know they have an eating problem, it takes guts and stamina to actually do something about it.
