Peanut Butter Chocolate "Chip" Protein Shake

Today I wanted to share one of my favorite protein shake recipes! It's literally like drinking a peanut butter cup chocolate chip milk shake. No joke. And it's vegan. (As long as you use a plant based protein-feel free to use whey) I also used cacao nibs, which are a raw form of chocolate, instead of chocolate chips. They are full of antioxidants without the extra sugar. They give the shake the perfect crunch! I love having this as a post workout treat! It's full of protein, potassium, and good carbs that your muscles need to to recover. And it's totally healthy! Even though it does NOT taste healthy ;)

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Shake
🔹1 frozen banana
🔹1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I use Perfect Fit)
🔹1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
🔹about 1 cup almond milk (depending on how thick you like it)
🔹1 Tbs. peanut butter
🔹Handful of ice
🔹1 Tbs. cacao nibs (or chocolate chips)
Combine all ingredients except the cocoa  nibs in a blender and..blend blend nlend! Stir in cacao nibs, pour, and enjoy!
Xoxo, Stephanie
