This is an incredibly fast snack, breakfast, or lunch – if you’re addicted to peanut butter like I am or have a serious sweet tooth, this is a great way to start your day or fuel up at lunch.
Low Carb Peanut Butter Protein Shake Recipe
- 1/2 cup crushed ice
- 1 1/2 cup almond milk
- 2 tbsp natural peanut butter (no sugar added)
- 1 scoop flavored protein powder* (usually about 1-2 tbsp)
- Optional: 2 drops liquid stevia or 2 tsp granulated sweetener
- Optional: 1 tsp pure vanilla or banana extract
*We like Isopure’s Zero Carb Protein Powder in vanilla or cookies & cream flavors – these are already sweetened so you might want to use less sweetener.
In a blender combine ice, almond milk, sweetener, vanilla, peanut butter, and protein powder. Blend until smooth – serve as-is or pour over more crushed ice in a tall glass.
Make it fancy: Add a dollop of sugar free whipped cream and drizzle sugar free melted chocolate or sprinkle with sugar free chocolate flakes.
Tip: Getting enough protein already? Want to fatten this up a bit? Just want a quick dessert or snack? Half or completely omit the protein powder and add in 2 tsp MELTED unsalted butter, ghee, or cocolate before blending. Om nom nom…
