  • 12 muffin liners
  • ¼ cup / 60 g semisweet (or dark) chocolate chips
  • 2 scoops Chocolate Shakeology
  • 1 Tbsp. psyllium husk powder
  • ½ cup / 125 g 100% pumpkin puree
  • 6 tsp. all-natural smooth peanut butter, divided use


  1. Prepare 12 mini muffin cups by lining with muffin papers.

  2. Place chocolate chips in microwave-safe container. Microwave on 50% power for 30 seconds; stir; microwave for an additional 30 to 45 seconds or until just melted. Do not overcook. Set aside.

  3. Place Shakeology, psyllium husk, and pumpkin in a food processor. Pulse until a dough forms.

  4. Divide dough into 12 small balls; place each ball in a muffin cup. Press dough down into a flat disk with a depression in the middle. Place ½ tsp. peanut butter in each depression.
  5. Drizzle melted chocolate evenly over each peanut butter cup; spread to create a thin chocolate layer on top.

  6. Freeze for 30 minutes, or until chocolate hardens. Serve immediately, or store frozen in an airtight container for up to 1 month. If frozen, let sit out at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving.
