Ingredients for chocolate protein shake:

Protein powder (one and a half tablespoons) :

You can take plain protein powder or can go with chocolate protein powder. Choose the one that is easily available.

Banana (half cup):

To increase the nutritional value and for a thick and creamy texture, you have to put the banana in the shake. Use ripe and frozen bananas in this chocolate shake. 

Milk (one cup):

You can add dairy milk or any other vegan milk. I recommend adding unsweetened almond milk. Plain milk or flavored milk can be added. 

Butter (one tablespoon):

Peanut butter or almond butter can go best in this chocolate protein shake recipe. It is a source of healthy fats and adds a creamy texture to the shake. You can skip this ingredient if do not want to make the shake fatty.

Cocoa powder (one tablespoon):

Cocoa powder adds the chocolate flavor to the protein shake. This is an important ingredient to make a perfect chocolate protein shake. Take the best quality cocoa powder to get the rich chocolate flavor.

Ice cubes:

These are added to chill the super delicious protein shake.

For garnishing:

Banana slices 

Crushed almonds (optional)

Crushed pistachios (optional)

Chocolate chips

How to serve chocolate protein shake:

Possible variations of the chocolate protein shake:

  • You can add sweeteners like honey or dates in this recipe to make it more sweet.
