Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake

I’ve been making this chocolate peanut butter protein shake as a post-workout meal or snack for years. It’s quick, absolutely delicious, and really satisfying.

The shake is packed with the stuff you need after a workout (protein to repair and build muscle) and won’t put the weight back on with a bunch of worthless carbs.

Making the shake takes only a minute and requires just 5 ingredients. Do it!


  • 1 cup almond milk (unsweetened, vanilla or plain)
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I highly recommend Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein Powder, it’s the best there is)
  • 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter (no sugar added)
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder (no sugar added)
  • 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum (not required but it gives the shake a thicker, more satisfying mouthfeel)
  • 3 ice cubes


  1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender on low or medium setting until smooth (add the almond milk to the blender first, if you do the powder first it as a tendency to get stuck down in the bottom and not all blend in with the shake). Should take about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  2. Pour into a glass.
  3. Admire.
  4. Drink and enjoy!

That’s it. In just a minute you’ve got a great tasting post-workout drink or quick meal-replacement to refuel you. Enjoy.
