Chunky Monkey Protein Shake (vegan)

This Chunky Monkey Protein Shake is a vegan protein shake recipe that is meant to satisfy not only your body but also your mind. It’s delicious and tastes indulgent even though it is totally healthy! I got the idea from the Endless Summer Cookbook and adapted it slightly.

Chunky Monkey Protein Shake - vegan recipe

I am all for protein shakes, I love ’em! I might sometimes even drink them as dessert. Tehe.

If you are a peanut butter fan, you will love this shake. It has a very predominant peanut butter flavor with subtle hints of banana. I didn’t taste very much chocolate, even though I used dutch chocolate whey protein powder (not vegan) , but you can always add cocoa powder in there if you so desire, for a more complex flavor.

Truth be told, I don’t think I’m PB fanatic enough to make this my daily protein shake, especially if I was to add 2 Tbsp of peanut flour. I prefer a more delicate peanut flavor, so I opt for using only 1 or 1 and a half Tbsp of peanut flour. But a larger amount is nice once in a while when I’m intensely craving peanut butter. Normally though, I prefer my chocolate flavors 😉 I know a lot of you PB fans will love this though!

    LOVE this smoothie, Kammie! Simple and full of nutrition. I love how you used cinnamon in there. Such a healing spice. I have all these ingredients on hand (hemp protein powder and raw cacao) would work in place of your chocolate protein powder I’m sure. And I’ll use almond butter since I’m allergic to pb. Lovely, lovely. :-)

    Be Well,

      Yes I love PB2! It’s just powdered peanuts. They do add a bit of sugar though so you should be aware of that. I love that it adds a nice peanut flavor though plus you can use it with water to make a paste with it. As for protein powder, I use a lot of different brands depending on the type. For whey, I am currently using Designer Whey the most because they are all-natural and I like the flavors.

    Read what the FoodBabe has to say about pb2. Not a healthy way to get protein. Would never use it. Organic hemp protien is a healthy protien not processed.
