Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup frozen banana coined and then frozen
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or use chocolate almond milk for a more chocolate-y shake!)
  • 1 tablespoon Special Dark (or Dutch process) cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter Note 1
  • 1 scoop (1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon (32g)) chocolate protein powder Note 2
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 8 ice cubes

Instructions

  • NIGHT BEFORE: Remove the peel from the banana, slice into large coins, and place in a plastic bag in the freezer.
  • DAY OF: When the banana is completely frozen, measure out 1/2 cup and add it to a blender, along with the following ingredients in this order: the milk, cocoa powder, peanut butter, protein powder, honey, and then ice.
  • BLEND: Blend until smooth. Pour into a large glass and drizzle with extra peanut butter if desired. Enjoy immediately.

Notes

Note 1: To use powered peanut butter in this shake: use 2 tablespoons powdered peanut butter and 1/2 tablespoon real peanut butter.
Note 2: The protein powder you use makes a huge difference in the taste of the shake. I recommend a whey protein powder that has some kind of sweetener added, such as stevia. If the protein doesn't have stevia, I recommend adding a few drops of vanilla stevia to this shake.
