Peanut Butter Whip (low carb, S dessert)

DSC_1362

I wanted to call this little number the “THAT-Time-Of-The-Month Peanut Butter Whip”!  And while I am dropping that as it’s official name… well… You get the idea!  There are just some days when a good creamy fat with chocolate is just what the hormones ordered!  So this has been my Go-To, quick and easy, Gotta-Have-It-Now dessert.

Here’s how!

Peanut Butter Whip

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

1 Doonk of THM Pure Stevia Powder (that’s about 1/32 of a tsp or the little tiny scoop that comes in some powders… or you can use the sweetener of your choice)

1/2 tsp vanilla

2 Tbls peanut butter

85% dark chocolate bar or pre-made Skinny Chocolate (Chopped)

Roasted Peanuts

Directions:

Pour 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream in a jar or bowl.  Add sweetener and vanilla and whip until thickened.  Add 2 Tbls peanut butter and whip briefly to incorporate.  Pour into dish and top with peanuts and chocolate.  Serves one!

Pin it for later  or follow me on Facebook!

For me, this little dessert is so satisfying, especially when those craving are raging like a hurricane.  It is loaded with fat and sweet creamy goodness but won’t spike your blood sugar like a whole package of Oreos will…  Not that I have any personal experience with that scenario…

This dessert is an S and you will want to keep it as an occasional treat… Perfect for those few days when is seems the world might end if you don’t have something decadent right now.  Can anyone relate is is that just a crazy-me thing?

Add yours

    1. Never mind…I see it’s specific to the spoon that comes in the pouch of THM Pure Stevia Powder. So, if I live in a country where that’s not available, but I do have Stevia, what measurement is that the equivalent of?

      1. Hey Mo, Most pure stevia powders come with a tiny scoop that is about 1/32 of a tsp. You could just use a dash or a sprinkle or a few drops of liquid, depending on what you have. You can always add more as needed.

  1. I made something similar just the other night except I used a couple oz of cream cheese made with Greek yogurt. It was delicious.

  2. The only way I’ve ever made whipped cream is in a stand mixer. Is there a way to shake it in a jar? or use a fork?

    1. I think the jar method would give you butter instead of whipped cream. It is possible to do it by hand with a whisk but it would take a long time and be quite a little workout. It is the quick infusion of air along with the thickening that gives it that light texture.

      1. Actually, you get whipped cream right before you get butter, I do this with the kids all the time! So when it starts getting thick quit shaking or it will separate! 😀

  3. This is awesome! My 16 year old son calls it “That-Time-of-Day (or hour)” dessert. So rich and totally satisfies cravings!

  4. Ok, this is absolutely delicious! I used a packet of stevia to sweeten and it worked out great. I didn’t add the chocolate or the peanuts, and I loved it better once it sat in the fridge and set up. So yummy! Have been making a batch at a time and dividing it out for later. So hard not to eat all the containers at once though. 🙂

    1. I just made this tonight for the first time without the nuts and chocolate and my husband told me to keep it around for a sweet snack. I used xylitol that I turned into powder in my blender. We both loved it!!

    1. I have used both. I would recommend using an all natural, sugar free peanut butter… But let’s be real… even if what you have is Jiff and you whip this up, You are still better off than that package of oreos!

      1. Very true 🙂
        I suppose adding Stevia or THM’s sweetener with the natural will give it some sweetness. I just wasn’t sure how strict I should be with the THM “sugar” freeness.

  5. Too bad this promotes the use of “sugar free” artificial sweetened products that are just as bad as eating some Oreos. Whatever happened to whole food eating? Why not have some all natural peanut butter with a healthy organic apple, or some fresh berries with a drizzle of melted dark chocolate on it. Stop eating to lose weight, but eat good wholesome foods to be healthy, and a little exercise. I would rather weigh more but be healthy, than be society skinny and have my body full of unnatural junk.

    1. Emily, thanks for your heart felt feedback. It is clear that you are passionate about health and encouraging others along the path that you have chosen. It seems to me that the only place we may disagree is in the labeling of Stevia as an “artificial sweetener”. Since it gets it’s origin as a plant and not in a lab, I do not believe it fits in with the definition of “artificial”. It may be a product that you do not care for or choose to use… but that’s what makes the world go round. Lots of different ways to eat and live and be healthy. I do enjoy all of the foods you recommended and am no where near “society skinny” nor am I aiming to be. I enjoy a “little exercise and love good food, mostly whole and healthy with some fun treats thrown in. But if my recipes are not for you, there are lots of other fun and beautiful blogs to be encouraged in the direction you want to go.

    2. Emily,

      I have to say I am a bit taken back by your comments here, as they seem “personal”… You are apparently not aware that stevia extract is a natural sweetener; the brand recommended here is, in fact, non-GMO and organic… the makings of a perfect treat!

      I enjoy the blog here because RohndaSue does not promote “society skinny”. She does, however, promote “Trim”, “Healthy”, “Happy”… These things are good.

      While you wish to stick only to peanut butter, apples, berries, and dark chocolate (all of which are wonderful, and I am certain get a “thumbs up” from RonhdaSue), recipes such as this are “game-changers” for those who have struggled with health issues. For the first time in my adult life, I am enjoying life as a trim, healthy mama. 🙂
      Sincerely,
      Another reader…

    3. What a great recipe you’ve offered, RohndaSue, that uses all natural peanut butter and some dark chocolate, as Emily suggested! I’m thankful, RohndaSue, that you’re encouraging the use of one of the best truly natural herbal sweeteners on the market. 🙂 For those who enjoy sweets but are needing to lose weight for medical reasons, these kinds of recipes are just exactly what we need! 🙂 Hooray for a quick and easy, delicious recipe that is health-promoting and yet makes us feel like queens! 🙂

  6. I didn’t mean to start a firestorm with my comments; however have done plenty of research on stevia due to some personal issues I was having while using it, and yes while it does occur in nature, it must be processed to a point to become the table product we use. Many of the negative side effects of stevia are not discussed and people have a tendency to use products blindly just bc someone said to. By no means were my comments an attack on any person, but I did have some very negative side effects from using the stevia products in my tea, coffee, and in other treats I would make. I commend anyone who makes a diet change to better their health and improve their lifestyle. Having a history of food issues/restrictions as a way to lose weight, I’m very passionate about food and eating to be healthy, not skinny. Food/dieting can easily become the thing that is worshipped. My apologies to anyone if I caused any offense.

    1. Thanks so much for your response, Emily. I am sorry that my recommended sweetener has been one that has caused you grief. I certainly can understand your concern given your reaction to it. I myself, have been using Stevia for the last 15 years without any negative side effects but I have done research on it as well…. Like my mama always says “you can find a book to tell you anything you want to believe”. Only now we have to expand that to a “website” as well. It is not for everyone which is why I usually add the clause “or your preferred sweetener” to many of my recipes.

      I do, 100% agree with you that food, diets and even “healthy eating” can easily become and unhealthy obsession that we all need to be careful of. Fear, stress and anxiety over what we eat can be much worse for us than the food we choose to eat or avoid… as always, it is my goal to walk in peace and joy and encourage others to do so in the life they choose. I apologize if you feel I have not done that in any of these post.

      Thanks again for the feedback 🙂

    2. I wonder if you have an allergy to it? In my reading I found it is a member of the same family as rag weed, which means that a person who is allergic to that (or other plants in the family) might have an allergic reaction to stevia, often showing up in headaches. I’m hoping to avoid that myself. My mother has a strong rag weed allergy, and I could develop it as well.

  7. this looks wonderful and I am learning alternatives to use over high calorie ,sugar carby foods,with Oreos and being a sugar addict, cant just eat two, good choice here thank you and will make it.

  8. Thanks for this amazing recipe! Is there any substitute for the heavy cream? (Lactose intolerant here!) I’ve stayed away from whipping cream recipes. But this sounds so yummy!
    Thanks!

  9. I finally got around to making this last night! So yummy! I used cocoa powder instead of chocolate because that is what I had on hand. I also use Just Like Sugar (made from chicory) instead of stevia and it was perfect. Thanks for a great recipe.

  10. I love this tiny and sweet dessert so much. 🙂 I use a little extra whipping cream, but pull out about a rounded tablespoon before adding the peanut butter, and then I can dollop it on top of my creation when it’s finished! Thank you so much for creating this and sharing it.

  11. I have to thank, thank, thank you since my PMS is raging and I LOVED the peanut butter whip. Now, I don’t have to drool over my kids Reese’s or that new Jiff Whipped PB.

    Also, I read your latest post and it was so inspiring and exciting. God bless your work with THM and I want to tell you that you are a wonderful and gifted writer. Your blog is calming and peaceful and full of hope.

    1. Well, you can do it any way you want 🙂 I like to use natural peanut butter without any sweeteners and since I want this to really get my dessert craving, I prefer it with a sweet kick! But isn’t that the great thing about recipes… you can turn them into whatever works for you!

  12. Wow I love this recipe, amazingly delicious. I used 2 tsp of powdered Swerve in mine and it was sooo yummy! Thank you for this recipe!

  13. Rohnda, have you ever made this with the defatted peanut flour? Any possibility it would put this treat into FP fuel type w/o the peanuts & less chocolate?

    1. Chandra, I have not tried modifying this recipe in any way. For me, the whole point of this recipe is for an occasional decadent treat that really gets those pms cravings. The Heavy Whipping cream in this makes it a solid S no matter what else you swapped out. You could decrease the caloric load by some of the swaps you mentioned but it would still be an S. I know some have talked about using Greek Yogurt instead, but to me, that is a whole different recipe and would not fulfill the purpose that I had when I created this one. Obviously this recipe is only meant to be an occasional treat and not a daily indulgence.

  14. First day on plan. Figured I better just dive in and not wait any longer. Finished my eggs and thought, I’d really like something sweet for dessert. Then stumbled across this! Perfect! And yummy. Def could get used to this 😉 Thanks for sharing!!

  15. Question: I made this tonight and used 1 teaspoon of sweet blend (according to thm converson that equals 1 doonk), it was super sweet but very tasty. But it was more liquidy? How do I make it fluffier. I used all the right ingredients. Thanks! 🙂

    1. You may not have whipped your heavy cream long enough. You want to whip it til it is pretty thick and forms stiff peaks or until you can turn the bowl upside down and it doesn’t fall out. Then add everything else. I have never made it with sweet blend so I can’t help you there.

      1. I made this tonight and whipped by hand with a wisk. While it wasn’t fast, it didn’t take as long as I expected. Maybe… 5 min or so.

  16. I’m thinking coconut whipped cream would work well for those of us who can’t have dairy, and adding some cacao powder in the whip,

  17. I haven’t read through all the comments so if this was already mentioned I apologize but how about making with peanut flour instead? I tried with creamy PBS and it was yummy but next time I will try with PB flour.

  18. I tried this with the defatted peanut flour. The first time, I whipped the first 3 ingredients together until done and then added the peanut flour, but it made it shrink up and become kind of lumpy. I tried it a second time and put the peanut flour in with the whipped ingredients and whipped it until it started to fall apart and get dry and lumpy looking again. Since I stopped as soon as that started, I was able to fold the outer edges in with the center and it turned out better looking. They both tasted amazing! Someone with better cooking skills can probably figure out a better way. Maybe adding some water to the peanut flour first would make it more like adding regular peanut butter. I’ll try that next time!
