Peanut Butter & Chocolate Protein Shake

Chocolate and Peanut Butter is a heavenly combination. Try this protein shake that are quick, tasty, low in carb and will keep you going for hours.

My husband and I are trying to adopt a healthy lifestyle. I have an insane sweet tooth. I hate the idea of eliminating chocolates or desserts completely. So I’m trying to come up with guilt free recipes that are healthy and that will satisfy my sweet tooth.

The milk you choose for your protein shake can make a big difference in nutritional value. I have used unsweetened almond milk in the recipe.

I have used a plant based organic protein powder that has a whopping 18g of protein per serving. They work for most diets.
