Butterfinger Candy Bar Fix



Recommended Posts

I am not a big candy eater, but let me tell you when I am craving something - I need those flavors!!

Since being sleeved I have had to get creative with how I approach certain cravings. So, there I was last night craving something sweet, particularly a Butterfinger Candy bar. I knew I didn't need the sugars and junk in one but needed those flavors. Into the kitchen I went and here is the concoction I mixed up and OMG, tastes JUST LIKE a Butterfinger candy bar!

Ingredients:

1 - 11 oz. chocolate Premier Protein shake

1 tbsp. sugar free, Fat Free Butterscotch pudding Mix

1 tbsp. creamy Peanut Butter

1 tsp. instant coffee granules (you don't taste the coffee, just heightens the chocolate taste)

Couple handfuls of ice

Throw all ingredients in a blender and/or bullet mixing system - mix well to incorporate all ingredients.

Wonderful, thick, creamy Butterfinger fix! Oh yeah!

Also, I had enough left over that I poured it into popsicle molds and froze for a quick treat later in the week! :)

Enjoy!

WOW! Great idea. I am in the pre-op stage and already sampling Protein Drinks so i know what will be most palatable for me post-op. I love mixing things up too. I see the Nut for the first time on thursday to get off my initial 5% off.

This sounds delicious. Try using PB2 instead. I think this is Breakfast tomorrow!

Wow, this looks so yummy. Going to try it for my husband- he's seven months out and has been stuck on the Cookies & cream flavor from nectar. Time to break out of the rut- he loved Butterfingers pre-sleeve (fave movie munchie choice). I'm pre sleeve and hate normal Protein shakes/diet shakes but I'm going give this one a try too.

Phoenix, have you been trying any Protein drinks yet? We have been trying a few so we know what will be tolerable. Muscle milk light is pretty good. The fact that it is dairy free is good for me since I have had issues with dairy since I had my gallbladder out.

Phoenix' date=' have you been trying any Protein drinks yet? We have been trying a few so we know what will be tolerable. Muscle milk light is pretty good. The fact that it is dairy free is good for me since I have had issues with dairy since I had my gallbladder out.[/quote']

I haven't worked up the courage to try any yet- my whole teen years was full of attempts to lose weight with slim fast shakes and man, they are nasty! I think I will start trying some of my husband's nectar Protein powder soon....I'll hopefully be pleasantly surprised!

Yes, I agree, slim fast is NASTY! The only way I ever lost weight from it was because of running to the bathroom 10 times a day..... At least I got some exercise!

The verdict is ....it's delicious! I added an extra tablespoon of butterscotch pudding mix because my expert butterfinger taster said it needed to be more caramelly. With adding that, using PB2 and 1/4 tsp instant espresso powder instead of coffee granules since that's what I had....yum! Spot on. And the pudding mix really helps to get it nice and thick. I even had my first sip of Protein Shake and thought it was good. Sweet, but good! Dessert in a cup- perfect movie theatre treat if they'll let you take it in.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
