Anyone who knows me knows that my sweet tooth is my biggest weakness when it comes to healthy eating. And when I discovered this Fluffernutter Milkshake from Brown Eyed Baker, I knew it was going to be trouble. So while it almost killed me to do it, I lightened up her rich, decadent masterpiece just a smidge... and the result was delicious! I swapped the ice cream base for vanilla Greek yogurt to save on calories, fat and sugar, which also bumped the protein levels. And instead of marshmallow fluff, I used fat-free whipped topping to add that fluffy sweetness. The almond milk thins it out to get to the right milkshake consistency, and I found the perfect amount of peanut butter for this one-serving smoothie. The nutter butter cookie mirrors the nutty taste of the peanut butter, and gets blended throughout the smoothie, so every bite is evenly delicious! And even though this is a lightened-up version, I think it stands in as a close second when trying to cut calories!
