Who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate? This delicious power bowl is only 281 calories (including the toppings) and makes a perfect energizing post-workout meal. With 25g of plant-based protein, you’ll be full for hours!
For this smoothie, I cut back calories by using powdered peanut butter. This is a fit-chick must-have! If you’re looking to keep lean and still enjoy peanut butter, I strongly encourage you to try PB&Me Natural: 100 Percent Peanuts Powdered Peanut Butter. It has 90% fewer calories than traditional peanut butter! I like to use it in smoothies, stirring it into oatmeal, or adding a tablespoon to protein pancakes for a richer batter (and delicious taste).
The protein powder I used for this is bowl is created by Tone It Up. These boss babes come up with great products that you can now find on end caps at Target. (I’m NOT sponsored by Tone It Up! I just LOVE their brand). This protein powder has only 90 calories in the vanilla flavour and 100 in the chocolate. There’s even a brand new coconut one! All three are organic and vegan so next time you’re at Target, keep your eyes peeled for this brand.
And ladies, listen up! If you happen to be on your period and need a good chocolate snack that also relieves cramps, this is it! Potassium and B vitamins in bananas have been shown to reduce the pain of period cramps in most women.
This bowl is the perfect low-cal craving crusher. Because let’s be honest, if you’re going to reach for some cookies it’ll definitely be more than 281 calories worth. And odds are those cookies have no nutritional value. So next time you’re craving sweets, make this instead!
Without further ado, here’s the recipe you’ve been waiting for!
