My Favorite Peanut Butter Blizzard

We may earn a small commission from products from the companies mentioned in this post.

This is my all-time favorite Trim Healthy Mama compliant protein shake. This is a super creamy low carb shake recipe.  I originally found a similar version on the “Raising Godly Daughters” blog, which seems to be on hiatus. For now, this is my adapted version. Enjoy!

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cup Shake

Combine all ingredients (except for ice) and blend. Add ice til you reach desired consistency. If you use coconut oil instead of MCT oil, add 1/4 cup hot water to shake to melt the coconut oil (this idea is explained in the Trim Healthy Mama book) before adding the ice.

      1. Oh, thanks for the update! Do you think it would be about the same amt if using peanut flour? I’m not afraid to mess with the quantities but I haven’t used my de-fatted peanut flour yet so I have no idea what a good starting point would be.

      1. FYI – This isn’t a low-carb recipe. There are 19 net carbs in this shake! It’s delicious but doesn’t fit in the S territory. It’s a crossover. They’re are 32 grams of fat, 422 calories and 28 g of protein.

        1. This shake has 6.7 grams of net carbs. May I ask why you think it has more? Could you be using off-plan ingredients that have sugar in them? It’s important to make sure that your peanut butter, whey protein powder, and stevia do not have added sugars. πŸ™‚

          1. I must be counting my ingredients wrong then. Here’s what I used…
            3/4 c. of unsweetened cashew milk – 1g of carbs
            1 scoop of THM protein powder – 1g carbs
            3 tsp. of THM Super sweet blend in place of the stevia which has 4g of carbs per tsp – 12g carbs
            1 Tbsp of Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa powder – 1g carbs
            Adam’s 100% natural creamy peanut butter – 4g net carbs.
            That equals 19
            How did you get 6.7? Would love to know if I’m counting wrong. Thank you!!!!

          2. The first thing I notice is that for net carbs, you don’t count the carbs in Super Sweet Blend, or any other sugar alcohols. “Net carbs” means those carbs have been subtracted because they don’t impact your blood sugar. πŸ™‚ There are more details about that in the Trim Healthy Mama book.

    1. I buy mine from Swanson’s: MCT Oil

      I use it as a metabolism booster, so it’s perfect to add to breakfast smoothies and shakes. I read one of the THM moderators call it “coconut oil on steroids” once. You can’t go wrong with either MCT or Coconut oil though.

  1. Yum, thanks!
    Curious though, why no MCT oil for the kids? I hadn’t heard that it’s not good for them.

    1. I don’t let my kids have it because there is a warning on the bottle, and it’s definitely not safe for kids with certain metabolic disorders. But I know that some people have used it successfully in the ketogenic diet and other anti-seizure diets for kids. Since it’s so confusing, it’s probably a do-your-own-research kind of thing. Sorry I don’t have a solid answer.

  2. Hi! I’m the author of the ‘Raising Godly Daughters’ Blog you referred to. My blog has moved to http://www.kristyquinn.net now. I’m also an author and I sell Young Living oils.

    This recipe was made by a sweet THM mama who just threw everything together and ended up with a phenomenal drink! Sweet thing had no idea how much people would love it! I about fell over when I first tasted it and I asked her if I could share it with others. I can’t remember her name though. It was about a year ago.

    I’ve made it so much and so many different ways depending on what I wanted. It’s terrific even without the coconut oil or MCT and with only Peanut flour. I, like you use Adams.

    I’m not doing THM full time anymore but I had a friend just contact me to tell me you had the name of my old blog on here. lol I thought I’d come over and say hi! πŸ™‚

    Kristy

    1. Thanks Kristy! I’ll go ahead and update your new blog address. Everyone loves the recipe, thanks!

  3. My little nursling has a severe almond allergy…so I made this, and only this tweak: instead of the almond milk I used 1/2 c. coconut milk and 1/2 c. cottage cheese. It is AMAZING!!! Totally hitting the PMS craving on the head. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  4. That was incredible! I subbed extra peanut butter for the cocoa (gives me migraines) and I literally oozed and ahed. Hubby and daughter were highly complimentary too. Thank you!

  5. I wrote this recipe in my THM book so I could find it easily. So good! It’s easy to make too. One of my favorite smoothies!

  6. Why not MCT for the kids? I am curious πŸ™‚

    actually, while I thought about it I realized the one I use from amazon is coconut oil.

  7. Can you use cottage cheese in place of the protein powder, and how much? What kind of thm would this sub. be? Thanks!

    1. Any kind of cottage cheese will keep this recipe as an S because of the peanut butter. I have substituted 1/4 cup cottage cheese for the protein powder with good results, but you might want to start with 1/8 cup and taste from there. I honestly can’t taste it, though.

  8. Hi I’m new to thm. They give your website information in the thm plan book. I needed menu ideas.I have printed February but where do I get the recipes? I don’t do any social media stuff. Sure would appreciate your help.

    1. Hi Kim! Beneath the printable calendar menu, you can download the recipe instructions (actually, you really need it because it explains how each meal works with THM and things you may need to tweak). That document has clickable links to each recipe. I have lots of menus under the “Trim Healthy Mama” tab at the top of the website if you need more inspiration. I hope that helps!

    1. Yay, I’m so glad you like it! Are you new to THM, or is this just the first shake you’ve tried? It’s one of my faves. πŸ™‚

      1. I’m very new to THM… as in still getting through Week One! The shake sounded so easy and fun, and it was! So glad to tap into your resources. Thank you so much!

  9. So I get really sick if I eat whey protein, so is there something I can substitute for it?

    1. Hi Christy! Is it dairy in general, or just whey? If you can still have dairy, I’d just throw in 1/4 cup cottage cheese. You can’t taste it (in my opinion), and cottage cheese has a ton of protein. If you can’t have dairy, I’d substitute another protein powder that you can tolerate. πŸ™‚

  10. This is delicious. I felt transported to a magical world full of rainbows and unicorns. I am eternally grateful. lolz

    1. I’m sorry, Pat, this one doesn’t have a print button! I’ll try to get that fixed soon, thanks for letting me know!

    1. Thanks Michelle! I use cottage cheese when I run out of protein powder. I like the creamier texture, too. πŸ™‚

  11. I just want to say thank you for putting this up. I was looking for something different and yum and saw this.
    So now it is breakfast time or make that brunch as I slept in and it is so yummy. I didn’t have vanilla protein but I did add extra vanilla essence instead to the protein I did have and it was/is divine.

    Appreciate all the effort you put in to make it easy for us mummas working this out. Thanks again.

  12. This shake is amazing!! So simple to make and only takes a few minutes. Thanks for sharing. I’m loivng this as a perfect breakfast on the run!

  13. I saw a link for this on Darcie’s Dish, I think, and decided to try it. I’m not fully on THM but I dabble, lol. My biggest problem is sweets, so I like trying sweet options that don’t require special ingredients. This was so good!! I subbed cottage cheese for the protein powder and used coconut oil as you suggested. Definitely going to make again, thanks for sharing!
