Chocolate Protein Shake FAQ
How can I make this Dairy Free?
If you are vegan, have a sensitivity to dairy, or avoid dairy for any reason at all, you can still enjoy this shake! Simply substitute plant based yogurt for the Kefir in the recipe!
What can I substitute for Kefir?
Kefir is a fantastic source of many nutrients, is a powerful probiotic, and has potent antibacterial properties. It is so nourishing to your body! Sometimes, though, you may not have it on hand at home. If you don’t have kefir or prefer not to use it, you can substitute greek yogurt!
What can I use instead of Almond Milk?
If you don’t have almond milk, prefer a different kind, or just want to switch it up and try something else, you totally can! Regular milk or any nut or seed milk will work great in this chocolate peanut butter protein shake!
How much Protein does it have?
I think that this is seriously the best chocolate protein shake around, and I think you’ll agree, especially since it is a great source of protein! It has about 13 grams of protein per serving.
What’s the BEST Chocolate Protein Powder
I have tried so many different protein powders, and would have to say that my favorite whey powder is Trutein by Body Nutrition. Mr. FFF LOVES Orgain for a delicious plant based protein powder.
Again, if you’re looking to switch up the flavors of this shake, you totally can do so easily! Try using different flavors of kefir or yogurt to spice it up a little. Banana yogurt might be fun and would go really well with the chocolate peanut butter thing we’ve got going on! Similarly, you could totally substitute the peanut butter for almond butter or cashew butter to make it the BEST chocolate protein shake!
