Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder (50 grams) (I used Nuzest)
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut butter, plus more for topping
  • 2 frozen bananas, in chunks
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or oat milk
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • handful of ice if needed
  • 1 Lily's peanut butter cup, chopped (optional)

Instructions

  • Blend: Add frozen banana chunks, protein powder, peanut butter, cocoa powder and milk into a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. You can also add 1/2 of the peanut butter cup if you want pieces blended in.
  • Taste: Taste the smoothie and see if you feel like it need anything... a handful of ice to make it colder/thicker or more milk, if it's too thick. Add these things (if needed) and blend again.
  • Enjoy: Once the smoothie is perfect, pour into a glass and enjoy! Top with toppings like a drizzle of peanut butter and chopped peanut butter cup pieces, if desired.

Notes

  • Banana sub: If you're watching your sugar intake you can decrease to 1 banana or omit the bananas all together and just use ice for the frozen consistency. You can also use frozen zucchini, cauliflower rice or avocado. To replace the sweetness of the banana, feel free to use your favorite natural sweetener. Monkfruit or stevia work great for a low-sugar option. 
  • Peanut butter powder: You can replace the peanut butter with PB2 or peanut butter powder to reduce the calories and fat. Just do 1 Tablespoon of peanut butter powder instead of the regular peanut butter!
  • Cocoa powder: cocoa powder is optional, especially if your chocolate protein powder has plenty of chocolate flavor!
