Twofer Thursday - Two Protein Shake Recipes!!

Have you heard of twofer tuesday...
well I'm declaring today twofer thursday :)!

I have two Protein Shake Recipes for You!

First one!

Did you ever go to Jamba Juice
when they had a smoothie called
Peanut Butter Mood!
It was a family favorite.
They stopped making it so we had to figure it out at home!
This is my kids
ABSOLUTE FAVORITE
after school snack! 

I love my Blendtec
because it makes whipping up Protein Shakes a total cinch!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Shake
1 cup milk
2-4 TBS Peanut Butter 
(less calories use the 2 TBS, but if you want a more
peanut buttery flavor go with the 4)
1/3 of a banana (we keep a bunch in the freezer)
1 Scoop Vanilla or chocolate protein powder
1 TBS Cocoa powder (if using vanilla protein)
2 tsp stevia
handful of ice

Throw all of it in the blender and blend!
Add more ice for thicker shake!



One more recipe. 
This is what I make for me!
If you are following the Dukan Diet
this is perfect on a protein only day.

It is similar to a chocolate frosty,
only better for you!


Chocolate Protein Shake
1 cup fat free milk
1 scoop protein powder
1 TBS cocoa powder
1-2 tsp stevia
handful of ice

Place all ingredients in the blender 
and blend!


Do you want to know my dirty little secret!

Shhhhh....
I make my kids the above
Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Shake.
I don't wash the blender jar.
I just make my 
Chocolate Protein Shake
in that same jar.
There is just enough peanut butter
on the sides
that I get a hint of peanut butter
without the calories!

So sneaky, huh!!

I hope you enjoy!
