Today’s breakfast was a peanut butter and chocolate lovers dream.
Enter, the chocolate peanut butter cup smoothie!
In to the blender went:
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 c. milk
- 1 tbsp. peanut butter
- 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 large pinch (1/2 tsp.?) xanthan gum (for thickening)
Chocolate + Peanut Butter = Best combination in the world
This peanut butter lover was quite happy!
As I was drinking this smoothie, I sang the song “Build Me Up Buttercup” in my head over and over, subbing the words “butter cup” for “peanut butter cup.” An instant classic, don’t you think?
Why do you build me up (build me up) peanut butter cup, baby
Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around
And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin’
You know that I have from the start
So build me up (build me up) peanut butter cup, don’t break my heart
Such a good song. I love oldies music! I would love to see Akon sing a song that referred to a girl as “Buttercup.” Just sayin’.
My peanut butter cup smoothie hit the spot after a great workout (boot camp class + 20 minute on the elliptical) and a nice walk with these two crazies.
I kind of love them.
Off to listen to the Wicked station on Pandora and power through my to-do list at work!
