Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate Protein Shake Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

’Tis the season for hot chocolate so here is my Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate Protein Shake which is a delicious, guilt-free, and much healthier alternative!

Here is the recipe:

  • 1/2 Tablespoon (7.5g) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 Tablespoons (10g) Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Cup (8 Ounces) Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (or Regular Milk/Other Milk Substitute)
  • 1 Scoop (56.7g) Chocolate Shake Protein Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon (17g) Chocolate Peanut Butter
  • 2 Teaspoons Sweetener

Calories per shake:

  • Calories: 404
  • Fat: 12g
  • Saturated Fat: 4g
  • Sodium: 384mg
  • Carbs: 40g
  • Fiber: 8g
  • Sugar: 11g
  • Protein: 34g

Get a blender (preferred) or shaker bottle, add all of your ingredients into it, and then blend/mix everything together. Take out a stove top pan, turn your burn on Low-Medium Heat, and then pour your mix in. Heat your mix up for around 3:00-4:00 (right before it starts to boil) while occasionally stirring it so that it doesn’t burn.


  • Make sure to keep stirring everything around so it doesn’t burn!
  • Top it with some whipped cream!

  • Just tried this recipe, absolutely loved it. I’m on a cut, but even then this thing helps me feel so satisfied with my lunch options it help me over until dinner yesterday and I felt completely fine. Thanks for the great recipe!
