Looking for a guilt free dessert to help stay cool this summer? You gotta try my rich and creamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake! You may want to lick the glass it is so good!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Kroger. The opinions and text are all mine.
I usually make a protein shake before I head to the gym, I like to have it directly after my workout.
Here is the thing about my shakes. I typically make them with chocolate protein powder, but that is where the consistency ends. I like to add different ingredients and play around with flavors. Mostly I think so I don’t get bored and stop drinking them.
Lately most of my shakes have spinach, I find it is a great way to add some greens to my diet, and I really don’t think the spinach adds any flavor, so why not?
Then I add some kind of fruit. Since peaches are in season this time of year, I have been carving those up and throwing them into the shakes. But, now since Kroger has released their new Simple Truth Low Cow high protein ice cream, I have been adding it into my shakes. This shake may be my new favorite, AND yes, I will add spinach, but I didn’t add it to this recipe. I thought you all might freak out with that addition!
Is it a shake or is it a smoothie? I am calling it a shake, but it is so packed with protein, you may want to call it a smoothie and enjoy it for your after workout recovery drink.
But, if you are looking for a cold dessert that is lower calorie and is guilt free, you can call it a shake. Whatever you call it you will make it over and over. Thanks to Kroger Simple Truth New Low Cow Lite Ice Cream we can all enjoy dessert that has 80% less fat and 60% fewer calories than regular ice cream.
Don’t stop with just the chocolate flavor, there are five other flavors to try. I also tried the vanilla bean and sea salt caramel and they were both a great low calorie alternative to regular ice cream.
