For over 6 months now my breakfast most days consists of a protein shake using Plexus P96 protein powder. Back in December I shared my Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe and today I am sharing my decadent Chocolate Dream Protein Shake recipe. I have the strawberry smoothie 4-5 times a week and the chocolate dream only once. I’m also working on some other recipes I’ll bring you when I feel they are perfected.

Mom Maven’s Thoughts on Plexus P96 Protein Powder
For years my breakfasts consisted of sugary cereals in 2% milk with additional sugar sprinkled on top. Then in my quest to be healthier I switched to bagels smothered in Nutella! Ha!! All of those sugar and carbohydrate laden breakfasts made me tired and I wasn’t full long and I quickly craved more sugar. When I have a Plexus P96 Protein Powder shake or smoothie I am satisfied for hours. My lunch is now typically nuts and cheese and then I eat a delicious dinner. Thanks to all of my Plexus products my sugar cravings are gone! I seldom feel hungry and my body functions better.
- 1 packet Plexus P96 Chocolate Protein Powder
- 1 banana
- 1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 heaping TBS Hershey unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 heaping TBS peanut butter
- 3/4 cup vanilla almond milk
- 6-8 ice cubes
- I make this shake in my Nutri Ninja and it has a specific order to load ingredients for optimal mixing. Place ingredients in the blender in this order.
- protein powder
- cocoa powder
- peanut butter
- almond milk
- ice cubes
- Mix for 1 minute, I use Smoothie with Auto IQ Boost. Then scrape down the sides with a spatula, the peanut butter likes to stick, and blend for another minute.
To make this even healthier use a low-fat peanut butter or a fat free peanut butter powder.
