So on a normal day, I don't eat sweets (including fruit) and I don't eat starchy carbs. I am following the 4-hour body diet. I get one cheat day a week. But sometimes during the week I want something sweet and delicious.... This has become my go to snack, and I have it almost every day. I recently figured out a way to make it go further - that actually adds lots of nutrients and fiber to the snack for almost no calories! Add PUMPKIN!! Yep. Here's the low down -
2tbsp Natural Peanut Butter (I use Smuckers -- Natural Peanut Butter should have no ingredients besides peanuts & salt)
1/4 cup canned pumpkin (I use Libbys)
1 packet Splenda
1tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
Combine all ingredients in a bowl -- I like to mash the peanut butter down and fold all ingredients together. The oils from the peanut butter help hold everything together. Mix thoroughly. Put in the freezer for 15-20 minutes. Dig in!!
