Sticking with my peanut butter theme again for this post. So I apologize in advance if you're someone who doesn't like peanut butter! I promise this will be the last one for a while. But since the first day of summer is right around the corner, I figured I'd share this blizzard recipe with you. I used to be an avid Dairy Queen blizzard lover. Ever since I've became more concerned with what I put into my body, I've tried to steer away from them. Dairy Queen soft serve is made out of milkfat and nonfat milk, sugar, corn syrup, whey, mono and diglycerides, artificial flavor, guar gum, polysorbate 80, carrageenan, and vitamin A palmitate. Who wants to put that into their body?! Not me, so I created my own blizzard.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Blizzard
1 tablespoon cacao
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup almond milk
peanut butter of choice
chocolate of choice
Slice up bananas and freeze. Once frozen blend together bananas, milk, and vanilla. Blend completely and take out half of the mixture. Add the cacao to the remaining half of the mixture. Blend completely and then layer with the vanilla mixture into a cup, bowl, or any desired container of choice. You can add the peanut butter along the sides of your cup like pictured above, drizzle it on the top or bottom of your cup, or leave it out completely. I definitely don't recommend the third option though! You can also mix the chocolate throughout your "ice cream" or you can just put some on top. The choice is all yours.
You can't even tell that these are bananas, trust me! I'm the person who gags at the thought of even peeling a banana. But this is so good, it'll make your taste buds go bananas. ;)
