Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake

Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake copy
Who doesn’t love chocolate for breakfast? This protein shake is packed with healthy ingredients and tastes just like the inside of a reese’s peanut butter cup..Try it! 

**EDIT: I JUST MADE THIS SHAKE 100X BETTER! Add in a tsp sugar-free, fat-free chocolate pudding mix and 1/4 tsp xanthan gum for a super thick and delicious shake. Top with carob chips! The pudding mix makes this drink so much more decadent even if you don’t have the xanthan gum.**

Ingredients:
-1/4 cup almond milk(more or less for a thinner/thicker consistency)
-1/2 a frozen banana
-1/2-1 tbsp natural peanut butter
-1/2 tsp vanilla
-1 heaping tbsp cocoa powder
-1 tbsp cottage cheese
-2 tbsp 0% greek yogurt
-1 scoop vanilla protein powder(I use creamy vanilla, PVL)
-3 small ice cubes(more for a thinner consistency)

Directions: Throw all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

*TIP*: Stir together protein powder and almond milk ahead of time so you don’t end up with clumps in your blender!

Enjoy! 🙂
