Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake recipe. A delicious shake that is reminiscent of a peanut butter cup but more nutrient-filled.
One of my favorite guilty pleasure snacks happens to be peanut butter cups. I love the way the slightly salty peanut butter is gently nestled in between two chocolate sandwiches carefully wrapped into one decadent snack.
In fact, I cannot have too many peanut butter cups on hand because honestly my will power is kinda low when it comes to these treats. Since I am trying to eat healthier, I figured I would try to make my morning protein smoothie taste like a peanut butter cup.
Was it possible that a Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake could satisfy my cravings?
Ok, so I am not gonna lie, it does not taste nearly as satisfying as the real deal, but it is pretty darn yummy, and dare I say healthy? At least I know my body is getting the nutrients it needs to fuel my mornings. I typically make my Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake in the blender, and then transfer into into a shaker cup so that I can easily mix any contents that may have “settled” into the bottom of the cup.
Doesn’t it suck when you use a normal cup for protein shakes? I mean there is only so much “swishing” one can do to try and make that sometimes gooey protein powder to mix around. That is why my husband and I own quite a few shaker cups to prevent the protein “bottom of the cup buildup” from happening. Plus, if you are just mixing milk and protein, a good shaker cup like the Genuine Thermos® Brand Shaker Bottle makes this easy peasy.
Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake
- 2 scoops Chocolate Protein Powder
- 1 tablespoon of Natural Peanut Butter *I love chunky but you can use smooth too
- 8 ounces Almond Milk
- 5 Ice Cubes
- Add each ingredient into the blender, and blend until smooth. Mixture will be slightly thicker. Add to your shaker bottle and enjoy the flavors of a peanut butter cup without the guilt.
Meet my new Genuine Thermos® Brand Shaker Bottle. This super cool shaker bottle might just be my favorite thus far. Unlike my other shaker bottles, there is not metal springy ball floating around.
I cannot even begin to tell you all how many times my kids have had a blast with those metal shaker balls around the home. In fact, one of our balls is so stretched it hardly fits the cup.
Thankfully, the awesome shaker, or “mixing” component in the Genuine Thermos® Brand Shaker Bottle is built into the design of the cup and not something my kids will be playing with in their rooms.
You see the Thermos® brand and I go wayyyyy back to my first day of school when I was rocking some super cool retro cartoons on my lunchbox and Thermos®. I know the brand is awesome and I didn’t expect anything less from their Genuine Thermos® Brand Shaker Bottle.
