When I had gastric bypass surgery a few years ago, my surgeon advised me to supplement my diet with protein shakes to make sure I got sufficient protein. Other people use protein shakes, too, including those on low carb diets, those simply wanting to lose weight, those that work out a lot and want to build muscle, and busy people that simply want a quick and healthful snack on the go. The problem is that not all protein shakes taste very good and even if you find some that you like, you might get tired of plain old chocolate and vanilla every day. Enter chocolate peanut butter flavored protein shakes. They taste like a peanut butter cup but they’re good for you!

BSN Syntha-6 Peanut Butter Chocolate

This is a protein powder that tastes good mixed with water as well as mixed with milk. If you want a special treat, slice up half a banana and toss it in the blender with a scoop of protein powder and a cup of soy milk or skim milk. One serving contains 200 calories, 22 grams of protein and two grams of sugar. It’s a bit carb-heavy, though, with 15 grams of carbohydrates per serving.

Champion Pure Whey Stack Chocolate Peanut Butter

This chocolate peanut butter is lower in calories and carbohydrates, with only 130 calories and six grams of carbs. It has 23 grams of protein per serving and three grams of sugar. Of course, mixing it with milk instead of water will increase those numbers a bit.

Isoflex Peanut Butter Chocolate

You can mix this one in hot drinks like hot chocolate or hot coffee as well as in milk or water for a cold shake, if you like. What works best for me is to put a couple ounces of soy milk in a cup, add a scoop of protein powder and stir well until it forms a smooth paste. Then I stir that paste into my hot beverage. Isoflex peanut butter chocolate protein powder provides 27 grams of protein and 118 calories, with only one gram of sugar and two grams of carbohydrates.

Myofusion Probiotic Chocolate Peanut Butter

You can play around with this one, too, to make some fun treats. Put it in the blender with some skim milk and a handful of ice to make it like a milkshake, then top it with fat free whipped topping. Or add a spoonful of instant coffee for a unique flavor. Myofusion chocolate peanut butter protein powder provides 25 grams of protein, 158 calories, five grams of carbohydrates and two grams of sugar.

Next Proteins Designer Whey Chocolate Peanut Butter Caramel

If you want a twist on the typical chocolate peanut butter protein shake, try the Designer Whey chocolate peanut butter caramel flavor. One serving provides 18 grams of protein with only 90 calories, two grams of carbohydrates and two grams of sugar.
