Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

2018年8月8日

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

How the heck did I not think of this??

Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

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

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!
