South Beach Diet - My take on the infamous "PB Cup"

View Full Version : My take on the infamous "PB Cup"

I've been slowly trying to make my way back to being 'on the beach' but it's taking some work.

The last few nights after dinner I was craving sweets.

I decided to make one of the 'PB Cups' that I hear so much about but didn't have any natural peanut butter.

I took a handful of peanuts and put them in the food processor til they were super fine and poured them in a small bowl. Then I let a NSA fudgebar sit out for a few minutes then scraped that in with it. As soon as it was melted enough I stirred it all together.

It was amazing.
I imagine you could put them both in the food processor and blend them and then refreeze for a ice cream kinda thing. Or put in small dollops on a wax sheet for like PB bon bons.

Great idea using the food processor. I love the "p.b cup" I make the one with the cool whip, natural p.b. and sf fudgesicle (sp?) . I haven't made one in awhile but I used to have one every night as my sweet treat for the day. YUM!

Good for you, Shesa, for not letting your supplies affect how you ate--I love it when people are inventive! Doesn't it make you feel good to know that you're dedicated enough to not let things get in your way? :strong:

I actually met someone at a wedding this summer who had heard about the PB cup and she wasn't even on SBD!!! It's famous! :lol:

What's sad is I've been on SB off and on for over a year (more strictly and evidently so the last month) and never heard of it!!!!!!!!

(my son says I live with my head in the sand (or in my case the bible).

OK, has anyone tried to freeze the pb cup to make it more like "ice cream"?

This is filling and quite good!

Loriann , I freeze mine. It really eases the pain when I watch my Dh and 3 kiddos scarf down their Ben and Jerry's on ice cream night.
