Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

This chocolate peanut butter smoothie has the flavors of a peanut butter cup and is one of my favorite protein packed meal replacement shakes.

I am practically obsessed with this chocolate peanut butter smoothie! It tastes decadent but yields a powerful boost of protein and serves as a meal replacement shake whenever I need something on the go. But this smoothie is so yummy, I crave it and drink it several times a week.

chocolate peanut butter smoothieThe cosistency of this chocolate peanut butter smoothie is different from some of the thick, creamy ones that require a straw. This one is a bit “slushy” and icy; it can actually be sipped from the glass~no straw needed.

I roughly calculated the nutrition for this and came up with the following:

  • 451 calories
  • 54 carbs
  • 30 grams protein
  • 19 grams fat

When I drink this for breakfast, I don’t get hungry until almost noon. If you want to reduce the fat, you can use PB2. I’ve used it before and love it, but the best, richest peanut butter flavor comes from jarred peanut butter.

Protein powder: My favorite protein powder is Jay Robb Whey Protein. The vanilla is most versatile and can be used as is for fruit smoothies. If used for chocolate smoothies, I just add cocoa powder to get rich chocolate flavor.

To make this easily any time I want to, I keep frozen bananas on hand at all times. This won’t turn out the same with a non-frozen banana, as the consistency won’t be right.

I would LOVE to hear back from you if you try this; I know you’ll love it! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!

  1. Do you think Jay Robb’s egg white protein would get the same consistency if used instead of the whey? Also I have both vanilla and chocolate on hand- have you tried this with the chocolate flavor or do you prefer to add the cocoa powder yourself?

  2. Hi Robin, thanks so much for sharing your twist on the smoothie! I’ve heard about the benefits of turmeric and may give your version a try! Blessings to you!

  3. I’m not a banana fan, but I had one in the freezer and decided to try this. I left out the protein, but added turmeric, cinnamon, and honey. Husband loved it. (I add turmeric and cinnamon to all of my smoothies for their health benefits.)
