Like the irresistible DQ Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard, but healthy! And this PB Cup Blizzard is keto, low-carb, sugar-free and high-protein!
Peanut butter and chocolate were made for each other. And they make a great pair in the PB Cup Blizzard. But you won’t find peanut butter in the ingredient list. Instead, you’ll find defatted peanut powder.
Defatted peanut powder keeps all the protein and yummy, rich flavor of peanut butter, but ditches the fat. It is an essential ingredient in my kitchen, especially for low-fat THM-E and THM-FP recipes, like this THM-FP recipe.
And, with the added defatted peanut powder, this blizzard has the highest protein of all my blizzard flavors – a whopping 27.7 grams of protein!
WHAT’S A BLIZZARD?
This recipe is basically an instant ice cream/soft-serve that you make in your blender! I have several other flavors, too – like Cookies and Cream, Strawberry Cheesecake, Pumpkin Spice Latte Chip, Mocha Chip, and Mint Chip! It reminds me of the DQ Blizzards I loved as a kid, but is actually healthy and can be enjoyed in any THM fuel type (except Deep S). It’s amazingly thick, creamy and satisfying, but without the sugar, fat or carbs. And high-protein, to boot!
It’s filling, too! Personally, I usually just make a half recipe at a time, and have alongside a veggie-filled/lean protein salad, and that’s plenty for me!
BUT AREN’T the CHOCOLATE CHIPS in the PB Cup Blizzard A THM-S FOOD?
To give this blizzard its yummy crunchy chocolate bits, sugar-free chocolate chips are added. Normally chocolate is a THM-S ingredient because of its relatively high fat content. However, a limited amount is used in this recipe, keeping the fat grams of the PB Cup Blizzard low enough that it can be enjoyed in either THM-FP or THM-E settings. Of course, you can also enjoy them in THM-S, as well – and, in that fuel setting, you don’t have to worry as much about the fat grams and can add as many sugar-free chocolate chips as you wish. Or, just make a half recipe but add the full amount of chocolate chips/chunks!
I make my own sugar-free chocolate chunks but Lily’s chocolate chips work great, too.
For an even creamier blizzard, add gelatin!
I recently discovered that gelatin makes these blizzards even creamier (and doesn’t add any fat or carbs)! To prepare the gelatin, take a small ramekin or cup and pour-in 2 TBS of unsweetened almond milk. Slowly whisk-in 1-2 tsp of powdered gelatin (I use 1 tsp Great Lakes gelatin for a half-recipe). Allow to “bloom” for a few minutes. Then take another ramekin/cup and put the other 2 TBS of unsweetened almond milk in it and put in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Then pour hot almond milk into the gelatin mixture to “melt” it. Stir until there are no lumps.
To add to the blizzard, first blend the other ingredients (except ice and glucomannan) and then, with blender on, pour in the gelatin mixture. Then add glucomannan and then ice and so on, as recipe dictates.
PB Cup Blizzard THM-Fuel-Pull Keto Low-CarbCourse: THM-Fuel-Pull, Snack, DessertCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
PB Cup Blizzard is like rich peanut butter cup candies in creamy soft serve ice cream and is keto, high-protein, sugar-free and THM-Fuel-Pull.
1/4 cup cottage cheese (I use 2% Daisy)
1/4 cup pasteurized egg whites* (I use Kirkland or Member’s Mark)
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
2-3 TBS preferred sweetener or to taste (I use Lakanto Golden)
2 TBS defatted peanut powder
1 TBS whey protein isolate
8 – 12 drops liquid stevia (optional or other sweetener to taste)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp butter extract, optional
1/2 tsp glucomannan
Sea salt to taste
1.5 – 2 cups ice (or more to desired thickness)
- Add all the blizzard ingredients except the glucomannan, ice, and chocolate chips/chunks to a blender. Blend until smooth.
- With blender on high, add the glucomannan and blend until creamy.
- Add ice. This will be very thick so you may have to stir around a little to help break down all the ice.
- When it’s your preferred consistency, taste test and adjust flavors if needed.
- Then add your chocolate chips/chunks and blend to liking. For THM-FP, you can 15 Lily’s chocolate chips or 5 grams of my homemade chocolate chunks.
- Then pour and enjoy! Since this is mostly made of ice, it’s best eaten right away.
- The macro breakdown is (including added chocolate chips): 191 calories, 5.2g net carbs, 5g fat, and 27.7g protein.
- I do not recommend using raw egg whites; only use pasteurized liquid egg whites. Most liquid egg whites sold in stores is pasteurized (but check the label). Raw egg whites can contain pathogens and also contain something called Avidin (which can lead to biotin deficiency). But pasteurized egg whites are safe to use right out of the carton and help make this Blizzard thick and creamy (and high protein). For more info, read this.
