So many times after a delicious dinner with friends, you naturally crave a sweet treat. But cake with more wine or a different form of booze is not easy on the waistline. The Peanut Butter Cup SkinnyTini serves you well in these situations because:
A – it tastes like a freaking peanut butter cup!
B – it is still a mighty cocktail with 2 oz of booze
C – it has LESS than 150 calories
“Whaaat – How is that possible” You ask? It’s one of the Eat. Drink & be Skinny wonders. Anything is possible as long as you think about it, play with it and go for it!
Now, I’m not going to lie, there are some tricky ingredients in here, so you will have to plan ahead if you want to make this recipe. The sugar free syrup, I ordered online. But BevMo and World Market also carry them in their stores, but call ahead for flavor selections. Sometimes they only have the very basics. Check out Torani’s website for retailer and online order information.
The peanut butter powder is incredible! It gives this SkinnyTini an authentic peanut taste without the unnecessary calories from fat. 2 tablespoons of this powder has only 45 calories versus the 160 you’ll find in peanut butter — and guess what? It’s still peanuts, so it tastes just like peanut butter. I always buy it on Amazon, so check it out.
Have fun with this one — Cheers!

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for at least 10 seconds. The peanut powder really needs to get mixed in there.
