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.
The 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!!!
