Chocolate Peanut Butter Elixir

Chocolate Peanut Butter ElixirI’m back with another rich, frothy, chocolatey, peanut buttery elixir :)

What would I do without these warm drinks when the temps are cold and the snow is flying?

This recipe is similar to some of my other elixir recipes except for one little twist – the addition of peanut butter. The peanut butter adds a little body and provides a nice dose of protein.

Here are a few benefits of including peanut butter in your elixirs (and smoothies):

  • As already mentioned a good source of protein
  • Good source of healthy fats
  • Helps you lose weight (keeps you feeling full and less likely to reach for unhealthy snacks)
  • Heart friendly
  • Rich in fiber
  • High in potassium and a good source of magnesium and vitamin E

Any nut butter can be used in place of peanut butter. The other nut butters have similar nutritional profiles. I used green tea. Enjoy!
