Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Shake

Recipe | Skinny Post Workout Peanut Butter Protein Shake

Have I ever told you that my favorite YOLO f00d is peanut butter? Eaten right out of the jar, with a drop of honey mixed in to it every few bites. Spoon after spoon after spoon.

Contrast-rich sweet and salty flavours come together, blend and melt in your mouth … truly sensational! Take it from me: this is haute cuisine, baby!

As long as it has Peanut Butter in it …

PB & honey spooned right out of a jar is not my only favorite food. I actually count everything that has peanut butter in it as my favorite dish. Like these Peanut Butter & Banana Bonbons and Peanut Butter Cupcakes in Wonderland that I made for my backyard birthday party (remember?).

YOLO healthified

I know, I know, spooning pb & honey from a jar is not very waist-line friendly (I can never stop after 1 bite). I found a solution for that though. You know I like to copy-cat recipes and healthify them, like I did with this Notella recipe. Do you feel it coming? You are brilliant: I indeed healthified my favorite YOLO-food and translated it into a Skinny Post Workout Peanut Butter Protein Shake that is even healthy enough to have for breakfast!

Skinny Post Workout Peanut Butter Protein Shake

That’s right: a skinnier version of my “peanut butter & honey right out of a jar” is a filling post-workout peanut butter protein shake. It has only 300 calories, a good amount of protein and a good amount (40%) of calcium (good for bone and dental health and may help resolve PMS complaints). If using vegan protein powder (I used this one), it is also … errr … right: vegan.
