I look forward to a protein bar or afternoon drink. Lately, I’ve been eating a LOT of bars. I have some Birthday Cake and Pina Colada built bars that I’m obsessed with.
As with all good food, I can get out of control. Once I have had a Built bar, I want another.
Some days I choose to have a protein shake. There are so many ways to flavor a proteinshake, and I was thrilled to try a peanut butter proteinshake today.
My Best Protein Shake Tip!
For any protein shake to taste like a milkshake, thicken it and make it creamy. This is how I do it:
- Half the amount of liquid. For 1 scoop of protein powder, I use 1/2 cup liquid.
- Use ice (approximately 5-6 cubes).
- Place it in a food processer for at least 4-5 minutes. You can leave it in the food process for a LONG while. It will feel like it’s taking forever, but let it blend and blend and blend.
If you follow those steps, you’re going to have the creamiest, thickest protein shake out there!
Are protein shakes good to lose weight?
When you create a calorie deficit, weight loss is possible. You might find it easier to create a calorie deficit if you replace one meal with a protein powder. You can be confident you’re getting plenty of nutrients by having three balanced meals, and a protein shake for a snack or dessert. This helped me lose weight.
A protein shake won’t be good for weight loss if you ADD a protein shake to the meals and calories you are currently consuming. A protein shake will not accelerate fat loss.
Ingredients in a Peanut Butter Protein shake
- I used vanilla protein powder, mostly because I didn’t have peanut butter protein powder! haha
- To maximize the peanut butter flavor, two things were used: Peanut butter powder (to limit the calories), and Peanut Butter Flavored Syrup. (discount code: HealthBeet).
- I then used almond milk and almond butter whipping cream. I don’t know that it made that much of a difference, but I was just going for a nuttier taste.
- I also added 1 tablespoon of salted peanuts to the top. I’m not gonna lie. This was a game-changer! I loved the combination of sweet and salty flavors. And just because I didn’t want you to skip the nuts, I included both the almond whipping cream, and the nuts in the calories and macros. YOU’LL LOVE IT!

- 2 Use tablespoons Almond milk, whipped cream
- 1 Spoon Roasted salted peanuts
Blend ingredients in a high-powered food processor for 4-5 minutes to make a thick shake. Blend it with the ice in a food processor to make a huge volume (2 cups) of food and a very thick consistency.
Serve with whipping cream and salted peanuts. The salted peanuts make this dish a real treat!
