I have suffered from Migraines every since I became a mom. The struggle has been a long road. But through this road I found some amazing recipes that I call my migraine busting foods. Because of the balance between carbs and proteins they help to level out my body and help me with migraines management better. And today’s recipe is my absolute favorite! It tastes amazing, the entire family loves it (yes even the kids beg for this healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter shake recipe).
Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake
The key to this is using a lot of natural ingredients. As natural as you can get really. So picking your milk is something to think about. Ideally we always reach for something without growth hormones. Because if you are battling a migraine the last thing you want is added hormones throwing you off balance!
DairyPure milk features No artificial growth hormones (*No significant difference has been shown between milk derived from cows treated with the artificial growth hormone rbST and non‐rbST‐treated cows.), and it also is tested for antibiotics! Their milk is continuously quality tested to ensure purity, only from cows fed a healthy diet and is cold shipped fresh from your local dairy!
So DairyPure milk is a great choice when picking your milk base for our Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake! You can get DairyPure milk from your local dairy and that is a simple choice for moms!
I adapted this recipe from a 40-30-30 weight loss program book that is aimed solely at helping to balance blood sugar so you can lose weight. I changed a few ingredients and measurements to fit what tasted best for our family and what made us feel the best after eating this shake. So our recipe is a bit different but based on the same idea.
If you have an amazing blender that does great on blending really fine, then you can even get away with using crunchy peanut butter! Also if you prefer thick shakes just add a lot more ice cubes. I usually use anywhere from 15-20 ice cubes per serving when I mix this up because I love thick shakes.
What I found was that my entire family loves this healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake. Even the kids ask for it all the time. The great thing is you can double and even triple this recipe if your blender can handle the volume. That way there is enough for the entire family!
But more than that, I found that it also helped to ease my migraines and gave me a burst of energy I normally don’t have. It also helps me when I’m craving a lot of sugar. Usually we enjoy it with a slice of toasted seed bread.
It is a great shake to enjoy when you are having a sugar craving, or for an easy cool dinner on a hot summer day! We’ve also been known to eat it for Breakfast or Lunch. It’s very versatile!
And with the more natural ingredients you can feel good about feeding it to your entire family! And they think they are getting a sweet treat, but really it is loaded with great protein and other good for you ingredients! Just be sure to use Natural Peanut Butter, a natural sweetener like Agave Syrup or Raw Local Honey, and use a great milk base like DairyPure milk.
