Okay…Okay…. it’s not exactly a peanut butter cup. It’s technically a chocolate peanut butter smoothie. But it’s essentially the same thing… and it made you click on the recipe right? Plus it’s delicious so it doesn’t matter. You can really use any protein powder (plain, vanilla, chocolate… really anything except berry), but I suggest using chocolate so you can get a better flavor. I use Vega brand protein smoothie but use what works for you!!
Calories: 225 (might make more than one glass… depending on amount of water)
What you’ll need:
1 Scoop Vega Choc-a-lot Protein Smoothie (Or your favorite brand of protein powder)
4 tbsps Peanut Butter Slim (Or any brand powdered peanut butter)
8 oz unsweetened chocolate almond milk
Water (as needed)
*1 Cup Ice
Add the protein powder, peanut butter and chocolate almond milk in a blender. Blend until smooth. If the texture seems gritty, add a little water to thin it out. *Slowly add ice and blend until thick. You may need a little less/more ice. Blend to your desired thickness.
*If you’d prefer a shake to a smoothie, just skip the ice and enjoy!
