Lately I’ve craved frozen custard and unfortunately, we happen to live by the most awesome frozen custard shop on the planet. I gave into my cravings on Sunday with a double scope of chocolate. Of course I tell myself that frozen custard is lower in carbs than regular ice cream. That is true, but if I really wanted to lower the carbs and satisfy my cravings, I should’ve ordered vanilla.

But where’s the fun in that?

Well those cravings are kicking in today. Why? Because that awesome shop has a chocolate peanut butter flavor today. Two of my favorites combined…crap!

Thankfully I came across this chocolate-peanut butter smoothie recipe compliments of Greenlitebites.com. The recipe calls for PB2 – powdered peanut butter. Ladies in my Weight Watchers meeting swear by PB2.  I guess in powdered form it lowers the fat significantly. But since I eat low-carb/high fat, I’ve stayed away from it. But for a kick-ass smoothie, I might be willing to break down and pick up a jar.

The carb count on this recipe is high, but it is still less than the custard version I’m drooling over. I might have to give it a try when I’m back from Savannah. Until then, I need to stay strong!
