Chocolate Pecan Pie Smoothie

Chocolate Pecan Pie Smoothie

My sister-in-law proudly claims to be able to cook just two things: One of those is a chocolate pecan pie that she brings to Thanksgiving dinner every year. It’s rich and sugary to an extreme that is off the scale, but it is pretty darned delicious.

(The other thing she makes is Sophia Loren’s favorite pasta recipe; I didn’t want to leave you in suspense.)

I took the flavors of that diet-busting chocolate pecan pie and turned them into something I can enjoy every day, in the form of a rich Shakeology smoothie.

Chocolate Shakeology blended with chopped pecans and — the secret ingredient — caramel extract, give this smoothie a buttery, nutty flavor reminiscent of pie, without all of the excess sugar.

To add a little spice, try a dash of ground ginger, cinnamon, or nutmeg.

Caramel extract has the flavor of real caramel and it can be used in so many different Shakeology recipes, including our Caramel Apple ShakeologyMocha Caramel Latte Shakeology, and Chocolate Caramel Delight Smoothie.
