Looking for a delicious protein shake that you will actually love?! Look no further than this super creamy peanut butter protein shake! It’s been my go-to for years now whenever I need an after-workout recovery meal or mid-day snack.

The ingredients are simple, completely plant-based, and the end result tastes like a healthy milkshake! It ain’t your average protein shake if you know what I mean. It’s perfectly decadent and good for the body as well!

Ingredients – What You Need

Bananas: I like to use frozen ripe bananas to make the shake consistency super creamy and milkshake-like. You want them to be ripe, but not too ripe! They will need to be frozen overnight to be completely solid for the shake.

Protein powder: you can use whatever protein powder you like! I personally love chocolate and use this plant-based protein brand.

Peanut butter: for some added protein and delicious flavor!

Hemp seeds: These seeds are full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. But they are also perfect for blending into smoothies or shakes because they help make the consistency super creamy!

Nut milk: I recommend using almond milk or cashew milk!

Cinnamon: for flavor!

Tips for Success

How to freeze the banana – there are a few ways you can freeze a banana. One way is to slice it the banana into 1 inch thick pieces and add it to a ziplock bag then freeze. If you need the bananas frozen more quickly, slice them and arrange the banana pieces on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper, freeze for about 2 hours until pieces are frozen solid. Add to a ziplock bag for future recipes.

More nut butters to use – if you’d like to use an additional nut butter you can also try almond butter or cashew butter.

Add some greens – if you’re looking to add more nutrients to your shake, you can pop in some fresh spinach or baby kale leaves. You won’t taste the flavor but it may change the color!

Instructions

  1. In a high powdered blender, blend almond milk and frozen bananas until smooth. Tip: cut bananas very small before freezing so they don't break your blender.

  2. Add cinnamon, peanut butter, hemp seeds, and protein powder. Blend on high until creamy and smooth – about 30-40 seconds. Pour into a glass and serve!

    I’ve a question, is it possible to use any pea protein powder (be it mango flavour or unflavoured)? Vega on Amazon in the country I live is not available…. currently I use Mango flavour Pea Protein from MyProtein…
