Peanut Butter Lovers DREAM!

This is truly a peanut butter lovers dream! 

A friend at the gym recently gave me the idea of freezing protein (Thanks, Tony!) -- one of the best ideas I've heard in a long time! I know I crave sweet stuff at night.... But this is an awesome way to have a sweet treat, loaded with protein (which is awesome for you at night!)
1.5 Scoop Jillian Michael's Natural Whey Protein Powder - Vanilla Cream
1 Tbsp Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter
1/8 - 1/4 Cup water
1/4 Tbsp Hershey's Chocolate Syrup (optional)

Mix the protein powder with a tiny bit of water - should become a pasty consistency.  Add in the peanut butter and mix until even consistency.  Freeze (deeper bowl, longer you'll need to freeze - for a quick treat - put in bowl where the mixture is very thin in the bottom - then you'll only need to freeze for about 15 minutes).  I topped mine with chocolate syrup tonight (Reese's cup anyone?!) but it's amazing on it's own - especially if you love peanut butter!
