Healthy Food- Peanut Butter Protein Shake Recipe

Drinking the same protein shake day after day, week after week quickly becomes one of the worst aspects of sports nutrition. Even though there are now a huge variety of flavors available, occasionally you might fancy something a little different. Enter this high protein peanut butter protein shake recipe – it takes less than 2 minutes to throw everything into a blender and tastes absolutely spot on!

My brother actually told me about this recipe years ago, and I always thought it’d taste horrible. I’m happy to report that it’s the exact opposite! The combination of a banana and the peanut butter makes the texture really thick, almost like a traditional milkshake. You can augment the taste further depending on the flavor of protein powder that you use, either doubling up with more peanut butter protein powder or choosing complimentary flavors like vanilla or chocolate.

Could anything be simpler? With the whole milk and peanut butter, it’s getting up there in terms of calories and fat, however it also packs a hefty punch of protein. I’ve taken to drinking these on rest days so that I can give my body enough nutrients to fully recover!

It’s important to use natural peanut butter for this peanut butter protein shake recipe for two reasons. The first being natural peanut butter is 100% peanuts, so no added sugar. The second is that it tastes miles better than all the other processed, hydrogenated crap and you should not have been eating that in the first place.

Top tip: ALWAYS put the peanut butter into the blender last, especially AFTER you’ve added the milk. This will work to stop the peanut butter sticking to the sides of your blender instead of mixing up nicely into the protein shake! Trust me, I’m speaking from first-hand experience.
