PB Vanilla Protein Milkshake

I am so excited to share with you Aaron and I's favorite night time treat / post workout shake.
I LOVE playing around with blender recipes. I never look at a recipe, just throw in what I have in the fridge and keep tasting it until I like it! HA 
I'm not kidding when I say this tastes like a vanilla milkshake! I LOVE milkshakes so this is heaven in a cup for me!
It's SO easy and takes literally 3 minutes to throw together!

Aaron and I hardly ever eat treats in the week ( we have cheat day on Saturdays! ) so this is definitely our TREAT in the week, if I'm craving something sweet!

PB Vanilla Protein Milkshake

1/2 frozen Banana

3/4 cup almond milk ( or regular milk )

1 scoop vanilla whey protein 

1-2 TBS of PB2 ( depending on how "peanut butter-y" you want the taste! See below picture )

2 cups ice

Blend and enjoy!!

Shake Nutrition contents:
285 calories // 4g fat // 36g protein // 28g carbs

** Nutrition facts stated above are with almond milk ^^ - with regular milk the calories will be a little higher and depending on what milk you use the fat may be obviously higher too.

You can do a banana not frozen but it doesn't make it as creamy! Frozen bananas make it so much more "froth-y" and wonderful! I buy so many bananas and cut them in half and freeze them when they start getting soft! Also, I love almond milk but also love regular milk. Almond milk does have a little more protein, but I like both and I put in what we have on hand!

If you have never heard of PB2 ^^ THIS is what it looks like! You can get it anywhere!
It is only 45 calories for 2 TBS, just 1.5 grams of fat and 5 grams of protein!
It gives you the "peanut butter taste" without the high fat and high calorie of actual peanut butter!
(( NOT saying peanut butter is bad! I LOVE peanut butter. This is a lower calorie, less fat option. ))

ALSO! WE get  THIS vanilla whey protein  at Costco and it is on sale right now for 8 dollars off a bag! It has 27 grams of protein a serving and It's our fav! I believe it's on sale until the end of the month! I went yesterday and STOCKED UP!
The cheapest way to buy protein is in bulk!
( I've also tried this shake with "half chocolate whey protein and half vanilla" and it tastes kind of like a Wendy's frosty! )

Happy Shake making and happy Friday friends! XO
P.S. I truly appreciate all feedback and comments! Means the world!

  2. Oh my goodness! I just broke out the blender we got for our wedding a few years ago (I can't believe I forgot about it) and I am on a smoothie/shake kick right now. I have been looking for tasty protein shakes for after my BBG workouts and I can't wait to give this a try!
