Skinny Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake is my favorite meal replacement/protein shake that is delish and healthy!

Typically I hate protein shakes. They’ve pretty much all nearly made me gag. No joke. I think the only one that I’ve enjoyed was laden in sugar and calories (i.e. the Gold’s Gym Peanut butter shake). Not only did it have chocolate syrup as the second ingredient but it was over 600 calories. It makes me sad to think after a few of my hard workouts, I’d grab a ‘healthy shake’ at their protein bar and drink away those calories I had worked so hard to burn.

So, I’ve always thought that homemade protein shakes tasted weird and once I found out that my go-to shake at Gold’s Gym was full of syrup I almost gave up on protein shakes altogether. But then I found a way to not only make one that tastes DELICIOUS and is quick to make, but I’ve managed to make it SKINNY/LITE (under 290 healthy calories!). This meal replacement/protein shake is so good that I actually get cravings for it (something I never thought I’d do!).

It takes 3 minutes to make.
Serves 1 or 2 (makes 2 tall glasses).

Ingredients

1 rounded scoop- Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard (Chocolate).  I love this brand. It’s better (in not only taste but also in healthy quality) than the many other protein powders I’ve tried!  It’s got a really great mix of vitamins and minerals. And Optimum Nutrition doesn’t contain oils, a bunch of sodium, and artificial flavors (like most other protein powders do). It took me a while to find a protein powder that I actually like the taste of and that is healthy, but I’m glad I found it. You can find it here. The container is 74 servings which are under $1 per serving. I get the chocolate flavor. It contains 120 calories, 24 grams of protein, and 1 gram of fat. And has 4 1/2 stars out of over 11,500 Amazon reviews.

2 Tablespoons- PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter (Peanuts that have had the oil pressed out of them). You get the great taste, protein, and nutrition of peanut butter with a fraction of the calories and fat grams. If you’ve never heard of this stuff, you are missing out. Just check out the Amazon reviews if you don’t believe me.  I linked here to a combo pack of both regular and chocolate PB2. I put the regular PB2 in the shake and I will actually eat the chocolate kind just plain (it’s that good). They contain 45 calories, 5 grams of protein, and 1.5 grams of fat

1 Banana- Use a nice yellow one (not under or overly ripe). 105 calories, 1.5 protein, 0 fat

1/4 C. Skim Milk- 20 calories, 2 grams of protein, 0 fat

1/4 C Cold Water

2 Cups crushed Ice

Optional:(If you want it thinner you can add 1/2 C water).

Total Calories: 290
Total Protein: 32.5
Total Fat: 2.5

Instructions

Put it all in a blender (I LOVE my Blendtec) and mix it on a lower speed for 30 seconds. Then mix on high for 1 minute (or until completely blended well). Enjoy!
