Peanut Butter Clean Shake

So. Um. Yea.

There's absolutely no way (in my mind) for me to make this look alluring to you.

I tried. And I'm still not convinced I've succeeded. But here I am. And this shake is still worthwhile. So I'll just try to allure you with my words instead.

I've been known from time to time to dabble in healthy eating, whenever I feel the need to redirect myself and start something new.

When I do the physical, emotional, and mental manifestations of just feeling better make me wonder why I've waited so long to bring it back.

I doubt ill ever be perfect with it. And truthfully I don't think I'd ever want to be. A life without pizza, doughnuts, or craft beer is not one I'd like to embark on ever.

That being said though, when I find recipes that don't taste healthy but still fit the bill, I definitely try to fit them in where I can.

A self proclaimed "non-smoothie" person, I don't put my seal of approval on too many of them, but this one I fell head over heels for.

Simple ingredients. Simple prep. Natural sweetness. Protein filled to keep me full for much longer than most of my other "go to" snacks".

I could drink this every day.

And sometimes do.

Totally customizable. A real winner in my book.

(A very happy Mother's Day to all mom and mom-figures out there, most specifically my mom and gram. The world is a better place because of you. You're appreciated every day.  Today is yours. Enjoy.)
