I feel ridiculous writing this, but I want to share an incredible recipe with you. It’s not even really a recipe. No joke. When I went to enter it into MyFitnessPal’s database, it scolded me — “Recipes cannot have fewer than three ingredients!” I totally had to trick the system to get it entered in there. Yes, this dessert has only two ingredients – heavy cream and peanut butter. You may have seen me post a disgusting-looking bowl of brown matter on instagram — it’s one of my most-liked posts — that is this concoction. It looks like a pile of dog shit but it is absolutely delicious. You should make it and eat it with your eyes closed.
What is it? Whipped peanut butter.
Don’t let its simple, somewhat revolting appearance fool you. This is a decadent bowlful of creamy, peanut buttery goodness that is a satisfying dessert at the end of the day. It takes less than five minutes to make, consists of little to no prep, and sets well overnight. If you’re feeling a bit low on fat, or need something else to satiate you, try this.
- 1/4c heavy cream
- 1T natural peanut butter
Measure out heavy cream and whip it until it begins to firm up. You don’t want it forming stiff peaks quite yet, but you also don’t want it completely liquidy. Guess what happens when you add a chunk of peanut butter to liquid that is being vigorously whipped? It makes a huge mess. So yeah. Wait until it begins to firm up, then drop in a tablespoon of peanut butter and continue whipping until it does begin to form peaks. It won’t get completely stiff now that the peanut butter has been added to the equation.
Bam. That’s it. You now have whipped peanut butter.
Consume straight out of the mixer by the spoonful, or let it set in the fridge overnight to thicken slightly in consistency. Make a double batch and eat half now, half later. If you don’t, you’ll be craving more later anyway, so you might as well do all the work up front and only have to wash dishes once.
One serving is 305cal, 2g net carbs, 4g protein, and 28g of fat, making this a simple and effective fat bomb.
