Now your dreamy idea of eating a chocolate milkshake for breakfast has come true... without the stomachache. Meet this chocolate-y goodness... My choco-banana peanut butter protein shake!! This recipe is one of the most frequently used breakfast recipes in our home. It's quick, delicious, and packed with protein. It can be modified several different ways, but this is a version you're going to have to try!
-8 ice cubes
-3/4 c. Califia Farms Chocolate Coconut Almond Milk
-1/2 frozen banana
-1 1/2 to 2 Tbsp. raw peanut butter **honestly, the more the better in my opinion... sometimes we do up to 3 Tbsp. :)
-1/2-1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder (You can use 1/4 tsp. vanilla for the taste, if you don't have protein powder on hand)
**If you don't have the Califia Farms Chocolate Coconut Almond milk, don't worry!! Just substitute with low-fat 1% milk, or almond milk, and add a small spoonful of natural unsweetened 100% cacao (cocoa powder)
Add ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy right away! Add more/less ice cubes to get desired consistency.

Below is a pic of the Califia Farms Chocolate Coconut Almond Milk... I love using it in my protein shakes in the morning so much, that it earned its own selfie. Just sayin.' You can find it at Whole Foods or Harmons, and I'm sure it's in other grocery stores too!
