This low-calorie protein shake is my go-to, pick me up breakfast shake. It is made with protein, espresso, almond milk, a banana, peanut butter powder, and blended with ice.

I like to use peanut butter powder in my shakes because it has less fat than traditional peanut butters. Plus, it tastes great!

How do you make peanut butter powder?

Peanut butter powder is made from roasted peanuts that have been pressed to remove most of the oil. After they are pressed, they are ground into a fine powder.

How can I use peanut butter powder?

Peanut butter powder is great as a dip for apples, celery or pretzels. Or mixed it into breads, pancakes or waffles to give them a peanut butter flavor. Mixed into shakes too! 

Where can I buy peanut butter powder?

Most grocery stores sell peanut butter powder near all the peanut butter. However, it is also sold in the health food section in some stores.

Love this! Is there anything that you can substitute for the banana or can you leave it out? I am allergic. Thanks!

Hi Liz, you can leave the banana out completely. It just might not be as thick of a shake.
