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.
I am all for protein shakes, I love ’em! I might sometimes even drink them as dessert. Tehe. I never leave for the gym without my trusty Blender Bottle and a shake made from one of my favorite protein powders.
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!
