In my book, *very* few things are better than the peanut butter and chocolate flavor combination. 🥜 As a peanut butter fan, I could have some version of this delicious combo on the daily! Today, I’m sharing this classic duo in protein shake form… It’s simple, requires just a handful of ingredients, and is the perfect quick, on-the-go snack option for busy days.

This recipe uses chocolate protein powder, which I always have on hand. My go-to brand for protein is Vega, a vegan protein brand. I have used this brand for years, as I have a sensitive stomach (😅) and this plant protein leaves me feeling my best! If you’re looking for a new brand to try out and have a sensitive tummy too, I highly recommend Vega!

If you’re not into protein powders, no worries! Sub for a scoop of plain or vanilla greek yogurt for the protein factor and a spoonful of cocoa or cacao powder for the chocolate element. 🍫
