Want a new treat to make your Medifast dark chocolate shake (or any flavor) extra special? Just add peanut butter. A tablespoon of peanut butter is allowed each day as an optional snack, along with a sugar free popsicle, 3 celery stalks (really?), or sugar free jello. Now tell me, why would you choose 3 celery stalks over a popsicle or peanut butter?????
First, melt a tablespoon of peanut butter (I use natural Jif) in the microwave for 30 seconds. Add your water and dark chocolate shake mix (vanilla or banana shakes would be good, too). I also like to add a sprinkle of cinnamon. Blend as usual.
I don’t have a blender, so instead I use the freezer method. Shake the shake mix and water (and other additives) in your container and freeze it overnight. When you are ready to eat your shake, put it in the microwave on defrost for 2 minutes. This makes it taste like a slushy, and you can eat it with a spoon. Yummy yum yum!!!
This counts as one Medifast replacement meal and one optional snack. As I learn how to make it work for me, I am falling more and more in love with the Medifast program
