Happy National Peanut Butter Lover's Day! Um, of course we have our own national holiday! And what better way to celebrate than the return of everyone's favorite PEANUT BUTTER IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL TANK?! The long awaited peanut butter tanks are now restocked in the shop! Now if only we could get the day off to celebrate by eating all the peanut butter. Maybe next year.
Instead, this year we will be celebrating in our Peanut Butter tanks and sippin' on our favorite favorite peanut butter chocolate protein shakes made with Designer Protein's Aria Vanilla Protein Powder. Listen ladies, this protein powder was made for us. In addition to high quality whey and soy protein, it contains biotin and folate for hair and nail growth, extra vitamin D, calcium and phosphorus to support bone health. And as an added bonus, designer protein uses non-GMO soy, and no artificial sweetners, preservatives, colors, or flavors. Now that's a protein brand I can get behind. PS: They even have a vegan version of this Aria Vanilla Protein Powder.
Ok back to the amazing-ness that is this peanut butter chocolate protein shake! It's pretty much my favorite thing to down after a good workout. I mean, you can't go wrong with peanut butter + chocolate.
Funny story, my intern and I went to make this shake for some pictures for National Peanut Butter Lover's day, and ended up making a fun little video in the process.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Shake
- 1 cup of ice
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 2 TBS peanut butter
- 1 banana
- 1 1/2 scoops of Designer Protein Aria Vanilla Protein Powder
Instructions: Add all ingredients in a blender and mix until well combined! Enjoy!
Helpful hints: Add in more ice if you want more of a "shake" consistency, or less ice if you want it a thinner consistency. Also, you can add in more cocoa powder for a more chocolate-y taste!
