Recipe: Chocolate peanut butter protein shake

This recipe is for the chocolate + PB combo lovers out there. It is great as a post-workout drink if your next meal is a few hours away or can sub for breakfast as it is high in protein and reasonably filling.

This shake can be made dairy-free depending on the protein powder you use. I used natural grass-fed whey protein isolate (WPI) from 180 Nutrition. I’m also a big fan of the True Protein natural WPI. For a dairy-free/vegan version, you can use pea or rice protein (or a blend) from one of the brands mentioned before.

I used peanut butter powder from True Protein. Other supplement shops also sell it, but this is the only brand I have tried. In case you are wondering, peanut butter powder is made from removing some of the fat from peanut butter. It is a fine powder that can be used in shakes, baking, etc. You can also mix it with yoghurt but be careful as it’s highly volatile and you can make a mess quite easily.

Finally, I recommend using a natural sweetener such as stevia, monkfruit or a blend. I used Natvia.
