Let’s talk about how much I hate cooking sometimes. I know, I have a food blog and I’m rambling on about how sometimes I seriously cannot even bother making myself a meal. HOWEVER, the good news is that I have come up with a few meal replacement shakes that make my world go round. While I’m not all about replacing all my meals with shakes sometimes it’s what I need to do.
Also, my not even 5 years old range just died and now only 2 burners work and the oven doesn’t work either. I’m so annoyed. Why can companies not make ranges that work well? This is the 2nd range I have had in 10 years with the first range being fixed 2 times before I bought the second range.
Soooooo I guess right now it’s a good time to have some protein shakes on hand.
I’m a real peanut butter whore so that is why this protein shake is my all time favorite. It has TONS of peanut butter flavor and because I used powdered peanut butter it’s lower in fat than traditional peanut butter. Plus I LOVE how peanut buttery powdered peanut butter actually tastes. Is peanut buttery an actual term?
I don’t know. All I know is that it’s amazing.
What’re the macros on your favorite your favorite protein shake? This peanut butter protein shake packs 61g of protein, 21g of carbs and 6g of fat!
Since this is a protein shake it can be customized to use whatever protein powder or collagen powder you personally like. Right now I’m loving UMP vanilla protein powder but that is because it’s readily available at my gym and doesn’t taste super weird.
One of my friends loves using chocolate protein powder for her shakes because how freaking good is chocolate and peanut butter.
Oh, and I know I’m going to get lots of questions about xanthan gum. You truly only need a little pinch because if you use too much your shake will get so thick it will taste slimy and super weird.
TRUST ME! Start off with a pinch and add a little more if you want it thicker.
