Chocolate and peanut butter are a pretty tough combination to beat. I love them in baked goods, desserts and oatmeal.
It’s no surprise that they make for some of my favorite protein shake recipes too.
There’s a bunch of different ways to make a chocolate peanut butter protein shake. More and more supplement companies are starting to offer a “Chocolate Peanut Butter” flavor now too.
But buying specialty protein powder flavors like that in bulk isn’t always a smart move, plus the best protein shakes are always homemade. Below’s a super quick and easy peanut butter chocolate recipe that you can through together quickly.
If you only have vanilla protein powder, you can still use it for this one. Just add a few teaspoons of cocoa powder until the taste is right!
Enjoy this sweet and delicious shake!
Muscle Milk, Nature’s Plus and a few other protein powder companies make a red velvet protein powder mix. I’ve never tried any personally, but I’m sure they are good. (Aside: Muscle Milk is consistently the best tasting protein blends out there. They are just a little too high in fats/carbs for me.)
But having a 2.5 or 5 lb tub of only red velvet protein powder for several months is daunting. I enjoy fruit or sweeter flavors every now and then, but not every day.
I came with this quick and easy red velvet protein shake recipe so I can quench my craving without investing in a massive supply of red velvet protein powder.
Works great for a dessert-type shake late at night if you have some protein you need to add to your diet. Can be a post workout shake too.
This is higher in fat than most shakes I post here, but it’s good to reward yourself every now and then while still taking in some protein. You may have to add a little more protein powder depending on your desired taste/consistency.
Enjoy this one!
Gingerbread is usually most popular around the holidays, but why limit such a tasty treat to just a few months out the year when it’s easy to enjoy the snappy taste of gingerbread in the form of a post-workout shake.
I drink this year-round and it’s inspired by my mom’s gingerbread cookies that she makes for me every year. Something about drinking this just brings back so many memories.
Feel free to play around with the ingredients a bit to get the taste right. I like to add 1 packet of Stevia but you may leave it out or add more if you’d like. If you really want a thicker shake, as always, feel free to add a tablespoon of cottage cheese or vanilla greek yogurt.
I know a lot of people enjoy drinking these dessert-like protein shakes in more of a milk shake form. Nothing beats having a gingerbread shake on a summer morning!
