This creamy peanut butter protein shake tastes like a peanut butter cookie! It's so thick, flavored with peanut butter, and is surprisingly healthy for you. This plant-based protein smoothie is perfect for a healthy breakfast, post-workout meal, snack, or dessert.
Peanut Butter Protein Shake Ingredients
- Banana: We use banana in this peanut butter protein smoothie to give it a creamy and thick texture with a lightly sweet taste.
- Powdered Peanut Butter: We use powdered peanut butter in this vegan protein shake to give it that peanut butter flavor without the added fat from regular peanut butter. If you don't have powdered peanut butter, see tips below for using regular peanut butter.
- Frozen Cauliflower Rice: Frozen cauliflower rice is an optional way to add extra veggies and volume to this delicious plant-based protein smoothie. You won't even taste it!
- Milk: To keep this peanut butter protein shake vegan, we use plant-based milk such as almond milk or oat milk.
- Flax Seed Meal: Flax seed meal makes this peanut butter smoothie super healthy by adding extra protein, healthy fat, and fiber.
- Chia Seeds: Chia seeds make this peanut butter smoothie extra nourishing by adding extra protein, healthy fat, and fiber.
- Vanilla: For that peanut butter cookie flavor.
