My Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake

Hey there!

Last Saturday we were quite low on food in the house.  By the end of the week our refrigerator is always quite barren and I was trying to figure out what to do for breakfast.  I started out with toast, but that was enough to keep me full for about an hour.  We were getting on the road and I needed something to keep me full until lunch.  Enter my Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake!  

I basically used whatever sounded good from the cupboards/refrigerator to create this and it turned out so tasty.  No protein powder is required which I liked.

Into the blender:

1 cup vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup oats (I used old fashioned oats)
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. ground flax seed 
1 tbsp. peanut butter
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 banana
handful of ice cubes

Variation:  This morning I was out of oats, so I used a full banana and a handful of spinach instead.  Tasted just as good and got some greens in there.

Into the 25th week!  That baby is growing!

This shake was filling and nutritious.  I will definitely be making it again!

What's in your favorite shake?


  1. Ah look at your beautiful belly!!! I'm just getting warmed up with shakes. So far I haven't deviated from blueberry, but I love peanut butter so I'm sure I would love this!

    1. Thanks Davida! I'm strange and I only like blueberries when cooked into baked goods. I'll be sticking with peanut butter haha!

  2. Yum! Sounds delicious! Wishing you the best with your pregnancy!

  3. I've been craving shakes like CRAZY lately. This one sounds tasty -- I love the addition of oats!

    1. I really love the addition of oats too. Adds a great thickness to the shake!

  4. This sounds like my perfect smoothie :) Anything with chocolate and PB is a win for me.
