WW Recipe of the Day: Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Shake
(299 calories | 6 6 6 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
Today I want to share one of my favorite breakfasts of the moment, a chocolate peanut butter banana protein shake. It's a delicious decadent tasting high protein smoothie that keeps me satisfied until lunch.
I've been enjoying them several times a week. Rod's a fan too. Protein shakes are an easy peasy healthy breakfast ready in five minutes or less. Perfect on busy mornings.
The Skinny on Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Shake
If you're a cottage cheese fan, like I am, you'll love it.
If not, I promise, you absolutely don't taste it. Cottage cheese packs a serious protein punch, blends up thick and creamy, and is much less tart than plain Greek yogurt.

For even more protein, this yummy chocolate peanut butter banana protein shake also has chocolate protein powder and PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter (affiliate link) a great way to get all the flavor of protein with fewer SmartPoints.

I use my Vitamix to make my protein shakes and smoothies which works great. I don't have a Magic Bullet NutriBullet 12-Piece High-Speed Blender/Mixer System (affiliate link), but it seems like a wonderful lower cost portable alternative and is a top seller on Amazon.
And a great tasty way to sneak in a few more servings of fruits and vegetables.
