Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake

I don’t know why I haven’t blogged about my most favorite protein shake recipe? It’s one I make several times a week and I just can’t seem to pull myself away from this one. I have tried others but they just aren’t the same.  I never get bored with this one either. That should show you how much I love this one. Every now and again I’ll try something different just too well…..try something different. But I always come back to my first love I guess you can say.
My husband once asked “Why don’t you just use chocolate protein powder instead of the cocoa?” I told him I tried that once and it just didn’t have the same flavor. So stick with the vanilla protein powder and just add the cocoa to the mix.

Oh this looks yummy. I really need to start drinking proteins as the arthritis I have and meds I take for it make me so tired all the time. If I'm thinking correctly, protein shakes help with lack of energy (since I dislike coffee and don't like drinking energy drinks too often- they scare me!)-Lisa.Sweet 2 Eat Baking
