Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before that I have a deep love for the delightful combination of chocolate and peanut butter.

I've been doing well with cutting back on unhealthy foods and eating smaller portions.  One of the things I have enjoyed is having a shake for breakfast.  We were given a couple of variations with our Insanity diet plan, but I wanted something new.  Therefore, I once again turned to Google.  I don't remember the exact search terms, but basically, I found a couple of ideas and put them together for my own shake.

And it's really so easy, you may have already figured it out for yourself.

But here it is anyway.  :)

Rebeckann's Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake
  • 1 c. skim (low fat) milk
  • 1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
  • 1 spoonful of peanut butter
  • 1/2 a banana
  • ice (I use 4-5 cubes)
Toss all of the ingredients into a blender.  I set mine to the smoothie setting and let it go for a couple of minutes until I'm convinced that there are no banana chunks and the peanut pieces from my extra crunchy peanut butter are gone.

I also allow my shakes to sit for a minute to let any foam settle.

I was surprised at how long this shake sustained me.  The other shakes I tried did well, too, but this one lasted a little longer.  I think it's the addition of the peanut butter. 

This is so yummy, and I had it a couple of times this week.  Just don't pull a card from my book and forget to put the dispensing spout on your blender.  I forgot this yesterday, and....well...when I poured the milk in, I ended up with milk all over the counter and floor.  :-p  lol

I've discovered that peanut butter makes any shake so much richer and better-tasting. I don't put it in the spinach ones though.. that might be gross?
