If you're a longtime reader of this site, you know I absolutely love any recipe that combines peanut butter and chocolate. I've shared recipes for everything from homemade Reese's peanut butter eggs to a copycat peanut butter moo'd smoothie.
Okay, now I need to pilfer the rest of George's Reese's Peanut Butter Cups left over from Halloween.
Of course, those treats are far from low-carb, which means they're far from fitting into any New Year's resolutions. Fortunately this protein-packed low-carb chocolate peanut butter smoothie totally does.
It's one of the tastiest keto peanut butter smoothie recipes ever, too!
This smoothie owes its low-carb status to unsweetened almond milk (fewer calories and more calcium than skim milk), peanut butter powder (WAY fewer calories than regular peanut butter; PB2 is my absolute favorite for texture and flavor), unsweetened cocoa powder and no-calorie sweetener.
It owes its protein-packed title to the peanut butter and Purely Inspired organic French vanilla protein powder (available at Walmart for $19.97).
Gotta love keto chocolate peanut butter smoothies with all that protein!
I wasn't sure whether to call this recipe a smoothie or a shake because it has a thick, rich flavor, but it does call for quite a bit of ice, giving it more of an icy texture than creamy, so smoothie it is! Along with being low carb, this chocolate peanut butters smoothie comes in at just under 275 calories and has nearly 30 grams of protein. It's basically one of the most delicious ways to fuel your day.
Or at least fuel my day if you're not interested in delicious chocolate peanut butter beverages.
