Treat Yo’self – Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake

Protein Shake 31 Ways to Sunday

I’m on a chocolate kick this month. In February, it seems appropriate somehow. Valentines Day and doubling down on the last of the hibernation-induced calorie hoarding. And even if you’ve still spent the winter in the gym, sometimes you just have to treat yo’self, yo. My go-to is my Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake – post gym. But feel free to indulge post-whatever you’ve done today.

It’s not as terrible for you as it sounds.

In fact there is some good stuff in here.

Like whole flax seeds (ground by you…only buy them whole), for a boost of Omega-3; plain greek yogurt as a protein and probiotic source; cacao for antioxidants and serotonin support; banana for sweetness; and organic natural peanut butter for a fat boost and extra fiber (yep, PB is a fiber source). Go natural with the PB though, skip the Skippy. And a hit of chocolate protein powder for extra chocolate and protein.
