Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Packed Shake 

Warning: This recipe is highly addictive, try at your own discretion. I dare you 😉

I’m all about finding things that will give me more bang for my nutritional buck and this shake certainly does just that. 

Post gym I was seriously craving something sweet and filling and I conjured this up in my kitchen. I did a lot of strength training today so I knew getting a lot of protein in would be key.

I have found success on this journey by fulfilling my cravings with healthier, smarter options so that I don’t feel deprived along the way. With 23lbs down, I do believe it is working. 

This recipe packs a whopping 20g of protein and it’s only 7 weight watchers smart points. It can be even less points if you use 1/2 cup halo top rather than a whole one like I did. It’s also fairly low calorie but I treated it sort of like a dessert or a meal. 

In a blender combine:

3tbsp peanut powder (PB2 or Jif make good ones!)

1 or 1/2 cup chocolate halo top

1/2 banana 

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

A few ice cubes if you want 

Blend and enjoy 😋

Bye bye muffin top!

  1. Folks on connect LOVE Halo. There is something about it…I think the texture…that really bothers me. How do you deal with that? Do you always mix it with other textures so it does not matter? I guess I would always prefer a 1/4 cup of ice cream vs 2 cups of Halo. Did I buy a spoiled bunch?

    1. I let it sit for a few mins before eating it if I’m just eating it plain– i find that chocolate is my favorite to do this with. However, I also like to mix in fruit or make shakes and in that case the texture doesn’t bother me at all. I’m a bit more about quantity when it comes to dessert so I feel like it works for me but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, or bowl of ice cream 😉
