Those busy mornings just don’t give us enough time to cook up a big healthy breakfast. I mean, I know I want to feel full and satisfied, but cooking up a feast in the morning just isn’t always a possibility! Can you relate?

Shakes like this Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Shake are so quick to make and you can even pour it into a travel cup with a straw to sip on the go! The added bonus is that it tastes so delicious! I mean, come on- chocolate and peanut butter in a thick, cold shake is like dessert for breakfast. Plus, the ingredients are healthy so you can feel good about what you’re choosing to put in your body at the start of your busy day!

Ingredients Needed

You know those mornings when you’ve slept in and need to get going out the door to work? Or those ones where getting the kids up and ready for school is just taking longer than it should and you have no time to spare? I think we can all agree that mornings can be RUSHED. That’s why easy breakfast shakes like Banana Cashew Flax Seed Smoothie and Peanut Butter Keto Low Carb Smoothie with Almond Milk are my GO TO. They use simple ingredients that are both healthy and delicious! Here’s what you will need to make THIS chocolate protein shake:

Frozen BananaChocolate Kefir or Greek YogurtAlmond MilkNatural Peanut ButterRaw Cacao PowderRaw Maca Powder (optional)

How to make a Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake

Here’s what you will need to do:

Add all the ingredients to your blender. Blend on high until they are well combined and the mixture is smooth!

Enjoy

Yup, that’s it! Pour it in whatever glass you desire and drink it up! 

Chocolate Protein Shake FAQ

How can I make this Dairy Free?

If you are vegan, have a sensitivity to dairy, or avoid dairy for any reason at all, you can still enjoy this shake! Simply substitute plant based yogurt for the Kefir in the recipe!

What can I substitute for Kefir?

Kefir is a fantastic source of many nutrients, is a powerful probiotic, and has potent antibacterial properties. It is so nourishing to your body! Sometimes, though, you may not have it on hand at home. If you don’t have kefir or prefer not to use it, you can substitute greek yogurt!

What can I use instead of Almond Milk?

If you don’t have almond milk, prefer a different kind, or just want to switch it up and try something else, you totally can! Regular milk or any nut or seed milk will work great in this chocolate peanut butter protein shake

How much Protein does it have?

I think that this is seriously the best chocolate protein shake around, and I think you’ll agree, especially since it is a great source of protein! It has about 13 grams of protein per serving. 

What’s the BEST Chocolate Protein Powder

I have tried so many different protein powders, and would have to say that my favorite whey powder is Trutein by Body Nutrition. Mr. FFF LOVES Orgain for a delicious plant based protein powder.

Flavor Variations

Again, if you’re looking to switch up the flavors of this shake, you totally can do so easily! Try using different flavors of kefir or yogurt to spice it up a little. Banana yogurt might be fun and would go really well with the chocolate peanut butter thing we’ve got going on! Similarly, you could totally substitute the peanut butter for almond butter or cashew butter to make it the BEST chocolate protein shake!
