Recipe: Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake

I have been really into smoothies as y'all know from my posts here and here. I really have enjoyed trying different combinations and having a new way to get servings of fruits and veggies. That's always something I can improve on. We have experimented and found some real winners that I definitely will be sharing with y'all. First up, a protein shake, for when you need that protein fix. It doesn't hurt that it tastes like dessert. But there is a banana hidden in there, so that's nice!


CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER PROTEIN SHAKE

-1 Banana
-A little less than 1 scoop of Chocolate Protein Powder (or you can do 1 whole scoop for more flavor if you want)
-1 tbsp PB2
-6 oz water
-5 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients until smooth and enjoy!
So I usually don't fill my scoop all the way with the protein powder, but if you want to go right ahead. It will be very chocolatey and probably taste better but I prefer to go a little lighter with the calories.I also have used vanilla protein powder and it is really delish as well!I usually only put 5 ice cubes because that is all that will fit in my Magic Bullet. But if you are using a blender you can definitely add more if you like yours icier. Speaking of the Magic Bullet, I have not stopped using it since I bought it several weeks ago. If you are looking for an easy way to make smoothies, this is your ticket. 
Enjoy!
