A tasty homemade protein beverage!. It's produced with a small number of basic ingredients, is flavorful with flavors of chocolate and peanut butter, and has 28 grams of protein. So reviving and simple to prepare!

Protein Drink with Chocolate and Peanut Butter

Simple homemade protein beverage

Are you sick of the lengthy ingredient lists for shelf-stable protein drinks, many of which are difficult to understand and pronounce? We frequently question whether they are truly healthful or if they are only a marketing ploy.

You'll want more of this creamy protein shake's velvety delectable chocolate peanut butter flavor, which is made of natural ingredients and has a fresher flavor.

Making it from scratch also makes it simple to tweak (see ideas below), allowing you to make the most of your resources.

When added to breakfast, it is enticing (chocolate for breakfast? Yes, definitely!), a delectable lunchtime snack, or a terrific pre-workout energy boost. And you'll adore the fact that it tastes much more naturally produced than many of those you'll purchase.

Why not adore this place?

Then, as a side note, if you're looking for additional ways to use up a large jar of peanut butter powder, try mixing it into yogurt, pancake batter, oatmeal, smoothies, or topping fruit like apples. It tastes good!

Ingredients for a Protein Drink Recipe

  • 1 cup skim milk, ideally one with more protein like Fairlife
  • 50 ml of cold water
  • 3 tablespoons of peanut butter powder, like this
  • Dutch cocoa powder, 1 1/2 tablespoons
  • 1/4 teaspoon (heaping) stevia mixture, like this
  • Vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon
  • A dash of salt, if desired
  • for serving, ice

Making Protein Drinks from Scratch

  • Combine all items in a blender.
  • For about 10 seconds, with the cover off, mix well.
  • Serve chilled from the refrigerator or over ice.

What Happens If I Don't Have a Blender?

This protein shake can also be prepared in a blender bottle or a mason jar with a shaker ball.
Simply give it a good shake, let it sit for about 30 seconds, and then shake it again to help break up the tiny cocoa clumps.

Potential Changes

The calorie, fat, and protein counts may alter as a result of some of these modifications in the list.

  1. Instead of the 3 Tbsp of peanut butter powder, try using 2 Tbsp of ordinary peanut butter.
  2. Use all milk and no water for a creamier alternative. Alternately, use 2% milk in instead of skim.
  3. Dutch process cocoa can be replaced if you have normal cocoa powder.
  4. Try a different sweetener. There are several wonderful options, including maple syrup, honey, monk fruit sweetener, and erythritol (although you'll need more of these since stevia is so concentrated). Even a fully ripe banana could make it taste deliciously sweet.
  5. Use 3/4 cup of ice in place of 1/2 cup of water (to be blended with the drink) for a cooler beverage.
  6. I prefer to use milk with a greater protein content in this recipe, but plain milk would work just as well; the protein content will simply be a little lower.

A Shelf Life

For two to three days, this beverage should keep well in the fridge.

When Should You Drink Protein Drinks?

  • Depending on whether your goal is to increase muscle mass, reduce body fat, or enhance exercise performance and recuperation, the time required will change.
