Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

The incredible combo of peanut butter flavor mixed with chocolate is what makes peanut butter cups so delicious — so why not try it in a different format? If you’re looking for a healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth, this delicious smoothie recipe tastes like ice cream but has the health benefits of a protein shake. It’s naturally sugar-free, gluten-free, and keto-friendly.  Instead of whey protein powder, you’ll be adding in collagen protein, making it perfect for the dairy-free folks out there. You also get to reap the health benefits of unsweetened cocoa powder.  You can feel free to add additional sweeteners like stevia or monk fruit, but most people find this recipe to be sweet enough as-is.

Health Benefits of Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothies

Peanuts Are Rich In Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is an essential nutrient for over 100 enzyme reactions in your body involved in protein, carbohydrate, and lipid metabolism. It’s also a crucial component in the synthesis of neurotransmitters and cognitive development[*].  While vitamin B6 can be found in a variety of foods, peanuts happen to be a great source of this vital nutrient. In fact, one serving of peanut butter provides around 10% of your daily needs[*].

Collagen Supports Skin Health

The chocolate collagen powder that’s added to this recipe doesn’t just add a delicious flavor — it also nourishes your largest organ; your skin.  As a key component of your extracellular matrix (ECM), collagen supports your skin from the inside out — literally. Research shows that when you consume collagen, it can increase your skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.  This is due to the structure that it provides, allowing your skin to sit firmly on top of the supportive tissues of your ECM[*].

Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

Enjoying a peanut butter chocolate milkshake isn’t something you would typically do every day, until now. While it may taste like an indulgence, this smoothie is actually packed with healthy ingredients and loaded with protein.  You can enjoy it for breakfast, as an afternoon snack, or even serve it as dessert after dinner.  To begin, grab your blender and gather your ingredients.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

Add all of your ingredients to the blender (with the exception of the bar), and blend on high until all ingredients are well incorporated. Add ice cubes if you want it nice and cold. Divide the mix into two cups, and then top with your crumbled chocolate peanut butter bar.  Optional addition toppings include whipped cream, chocolate chips, or crumbled peanuts.

Tips For Making a Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

How To Make Your Smoothie Thicker

If you prefer a thicker smoothie, you can either add more peanut butter or less milk. You can also increase the amount of collagen powder, or if you like it really thick and creamy, you can even add some avocado or Greek yogurt.

Can You Add Fruit?

Many peanut butter chocolate smoothie recipes call for a frozen banana. While bananas can certainly add a nice texture, they are too high in sugar to work on keto. However, if you would like to add some fruit, try ¼ cup of berries like blueberries or strawberries.

Can You Use a Different Nut Butter?

If you prefer a different type of nut butter — no problem. Cashew butter or almond butter both work perfectly in this recipe.
