Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake
1 large banana, frozen
1 cup chocolate soymilk or almond-milk
1 (6 ounce) vanilla or plain yogurt
3 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon chocolate protein powder
1/2 teaspoon truvia, or sub another sweetener
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Optional: 1/2 – 1 cup ice
At least 2-3 hours previous to making this shake, remove the peel from the banana, slice into large coins, and place in a plastic bag in the freezer. (I usually freeze the banana the night before)
When the banana is completely frozen, combine it with the chocolate soymilk, vanilla or plain yogurt (Greek, low-fat, or regular), peanut butter, chocolate protein powder, truiva, and vanilla.
Add ice if desired for a larger and thicker shake.
Blend until smooth. Pour into a large glass and drizzle with extra peanut butter if desired.
