This healthy peanut butter chocolate protein shake tastes like dessert but is good at any time of the day, thanks to the hidden protein in it from the protein powder, PB2, and almond milk. Who knows - you may even be able to get your children to drink this "chocolate milkshake."
I have never had a protein shake that tastes like a milkshake…until NOW!!! I know, I know - it sounds too good to be true and I'm fooling myself and someday I'll wake up to reality and realize it just tastes like well…a protein shake… but I promise this is GOOD! I wouldn’t try to “trick” you.
Like when people make crazy claims that spaghetti squash tastes just like spaghetti – no it doesn’t. Spaghetti squash is delicious (I highly recommend trying my Spaghetti Squash with Pesto Recipe), but it doesn’t taste anything like spaghetti - it just looks like it :).
This particular recipe is my go-to chocolate protein shake. It is a delicious way to get in some nutrients and an extra kick of protein and to be completely honest, protein shakes are not my favorite. I tend to be really sensitive to different types of protein powders (which is why I only eat plant-based ones), and I am not crazy about the taste of them…but once again, this one is different and I LOVE it! I will eat this for breakfast, lunch, or as a post-workout snack…basically, any time of the day works for this guy.
If you are interested in a plant-based protein powder, I use Plant Fusion protein powder . It is my favorite. I also recommend adding a heaping handful of spinach or kale to this shake. It will add a ton of nutrients and you won’t taste a thing. I didn’t for the picture, because it does make the color a murky green/brown color (not the most appetizing).
I would love to know if you try this recipe and what you think it tastes like. Please comment below and let me know!
