I've had my fair share of protein shakes and smoothies.

Trust me when I say, this recipe is especially delicious ... and one of my all-time favorites!

If you're a big fan of bananas and peanut butter ... this may just end up being your favorite as well.

On top of that, you can enjoy this peanut butter banana shake knowing that you aren't "cheating" on your diet and fitness goals.

Seriously ... 1 full shake has only 468 calories and 33 grams of protein!

So if you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt, or get some more protein in without eating more chicken...

Look no further!

Protein: 33g
Carbs: 40g
Fat: 21g

Optional Toppings:

Now, I think this shake tastes incredible the way it is. But, if you are looking to add even more flavors or calories ... these are some awesome toppings you can try too.

  • Sliced Banana
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Crushed Reese's
  • Strawberries
  • Oats
  • Granola
  • Whipped Cream

Be careful though ... make sure you account for any extra calories you add to the protein shake with toppings!

Who is This Shake Good For?

Regardless of what your fitness goal may be ... this is a shake you can massage to help you meet any calorie or macro goal. The biggest downside to this shake, in my opinion, is the fat content ... which is a little high.

Otherwise, the calories, protein, and carbohydrate content are great!

For somebody trying to burn body fat ... this shake can still work! You just want to make sure it fits in well with the rest of your nutrition throughout the day.

Is This Shake Vegan-Friendly?

This shake is NOT vegan-friendly. However, you can make it vegan-friendly with a very simple change! All you have to do is replace the Level-1 Caramel Latte with Vegan Power Pro.

Vegan Power Pro is a plant-based protein powder that works just as well for the recipe, and comes in a wide variety of flavors. For this recipe in particular, I love using the Chocolate Frost flavor. Just be conscious of how this replacement can alter the macros of the shake.
