FF Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Yogurt / Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

Happy Saturday to you!  Since it’s Saturday and Saturdays should be fun days!  You know the days where you go out and do something that you wouldn’t do during the week, like have a picnic, get pedicures, go for hikes, go shopping,  maybe go to the city.  Well today I have a fun Saturday planned for you.  But first let me give you my super quick, not great pictures, super easy recipe of all times.  This is my Fat Free Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Yogurt.

Fat Free Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Yogurt

When I come home from work, I always like to have a snack, which normally involves yogurt.  I love yogurt, it’s healthy, full of protein and it tastes like dessert.  I usually have a dollop of peanut butter and mixed fruit in it, but today I was craving chocolate.  I am not the biggest chocolate craver, normally I like spicy and salty foods, but there are some days that I just need chocolate!  You know what I am talking about!  So I whipped together the most simple little yogurt parfait ever!  It’s made with a frozen banana, plain greek yogurt, cocoa powder and peanut butter extract.  Yup Peanut Butter extract!  I normally like to drizzle peanut butter in my yogurt, but I was out!!  I know, me out of peanut butter, that is like committing a sin or something.  So I decided to try out some Watkins Peanut Butter extract.

Watkins Peanut Butter Extract

The extract worked like a charm!  I had my chocolate and peanut butter taste without the fat!  I LOVE it!!  It’s a perfect substitute for my peanut butter!  Grant it, I love peanut butter way more, but this worked perfectly and best of all no extra calories and no fat!!!  This little yogurt cup would normally would be near 300 calories, but this recipe is only 162 calories!  Woohoo!!!

I LOVE my extracts!  I have a bazillion of them.  They really add some nice extra flavor without adding additional calories.  Especially when you use an extract like peanut butter or butter!  Those calories could really add up.  But please note, peanut butter is healthy for you and I eat it everyday, even if it is to just dip my apples in!!  Butter on the other hand, that’s just fat!!  I rarely use butter unless it’s in baking or I really need it in a recipe.  A stick of butter can last months in my house!

    I’d make the birthday cake smoothie as well as blending up some flavored milkshakes using almond milk, a few ice cubes, stevia, and the flavorings. Great source of calcium and delicious, too!

    I can’t believe I have lived this long and didn’t realize there was a peanut butter extract. I would definitely try to make a sugar-free peanut butter syrup to go on waffles. We don’t like the taste of the sugar-free maple syrup.

    • Oh my gosh! I LOVE that idea! Love it! Hmmmmm, that will be tough, but I bet it can be done!! I need to think about that one!!

    • Your too sweet! Love the idea of cherry covered chocolate candy. I think it is wonderful that you take the candy to the Childrens hospital. Good for you and that is what the Christmas spirit is all about!! 🙂

  28. http://Jeffrey says

    I’d make a rootbeer cake for sure with rootbeer frosting! The peanut butter extract would be good would be good in some fudge. The cherry would be good in some frosting for cutout cookies made with the butter extract.

  40. Love me some PB smoothies!
    Btw, PB extract exists??? I had no idea!!

  41. Yummmm I love chocolate AND PB! Doesn’t everyone?!

  42. http://Mona%20G. says

    I would make some fresh rootbeer…….and maybe add the peanut butter extract to anything I cook using peanut butter instead of having to add so much peanut butter…..

    • I was thinking rootbeer myself!! Love adding the PB extract to anything PB! 🙂 It will come in handy if you have a peanut butter addiction.

    • Ohhh, think of all the flavored marshmallows you could make!!! I can imagine cherry ones would be incredible!

  48. I think I’d try making some protein “ice cream” with greek yogurt, peanut butter extract, chocolate protein powder, cocoa powder, and almond milk. Top with some homemade chocolate sauce made with stevia, cocoa powder, almond milk, and the cherry extract. Yum!
