Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake topped with Homemade Banana Granola

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake topped with Homemade Banana GranolaEveryone who knows me can attest to the fact that I’m addicted to the classic combo of chocolate + peanut butter. They’re a match made in heaven, as proven by Reese’s peanut butter cups!

This milkshake requires just 5 simple ingredients and 5 minutes to make, and in my opinion it tastes just like a peanut butter cup in liquid form! So if you love chocolate + peanut butter + bananas, this shake has got your name all over it. The frozen banana provide an ice-cream-like base, while the dates add a touch of natural sweetness. Top it with melted peanut butter and Eli’s Granola and prepare to be amazed.

It tastes so sinfully satisfying for that sweet tooth, you would never think to classify it as healthy! As well as it being vegan and free from refined sugars, it’s also jam-packed with health benefits:

  • Bananas = potassium + prebiotics
  • Dates = iron + fibre + low-glycemic index
  • Peanut butter = protein + healthy fats
  • Cacao powder = magnesium + 40 TIMES THE ANTIOXIDANTS OF BLUEBERRIES
  • Balanced macronutrients: high in protein, essential healthy fats and energy-boosting carbohydrate = perfect breakfast or post-gym snack.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Milkshake topped with Homemade Banana GranolaAll you need is a ripe banana, cacao powder (can be replaced with cocoa), a jar of peanut butter, almond milk or any other plant-based milk and a couple of dates for extra sweetness. If you’ve got all these ingredients at home (I always do), then there’s just 5 minutes standing between you and the highest form of utter bliss!

I like to enhance the rich chocolatey flavour of the cacao even more by adding a scoop of chocolate protein powder.

I’m convinced you will love this decadent milkshake as much as I do – if so, please let me know!
