Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake

17 Apr

Another delicious, healthy shake. I love them. It’s my favorite part about working out, knowing that I get to have something like this after! Or, sometimes as my dessert at night I fix one too, as it tastes just like a good ole’ milkshake!

I experiment with all different kinds of flavors as I have one almost every day. Maybe a little shake obsessed? Well when it’s high-protein, all around healthy, yet absolutely delicious, why not be?!

Call it a smoothie and have it for breakfast, call it a post-workout shake and have it after time at the gym, or call it a milkshake and have it for dessert! It’s so versatile. You can add more carbs and calories if needed to refuel or wanting it to be a little richer as a dessert, or you can make it lighter to have as a quick breakfast on the go! Either way, you won’t be sorry you made it:)

Today, I made this after a morning workout. Yes it was in the morning, but yes, I was craving something chocolate and sweet! So I made this :)

Chocolate. Peanut Butter. Touch of Coconut on top. What more could you ask for?!

    I have had something similar. And I do the same thing w my shakes, sometimes I just mix protein w cold water and chopped ice. Sometimes I use milk, and sometimes I even add a banana and milk, for extra deliciousness, or something heavier, depends also on time of day. I’ve made my chocolate shake once, I used fat free nestle chocolate powder, and PB2 powder peanut butter, and other stuff. Soo yummy!! :))

      those all sound like delicious options! I always add almond milk and sometimes bananas for the extra creaminess as well. I use PB2 in SO many things, it is just too great to resist! :)
