Low Carb Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie
This low carb peanut butter protein smoothie is an easy healthy breakfast. Vegan, dairy free, with no added sugar. The key to creating a smooth low carb high protein smoothie is frozen cauliflower rice, peanut butter, almond milk and protein powder. Tastes just like a peanut butter cookie
Add the ingredients to a blender in the order listed. Blend on high for 1 minute. Serve cold
Dairy free milk: This low carb smoothie can be made with any type of dairy free milk (almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk, oat milk). The milk you choose for your protein shake can change the flavor and nutritional value. I always suggest you choose an unsweetened dairy free milk to reduce your added sugars.
Protein Powder: This recipe is written using vegan protein powder. However, you can use whey protein, bone broth protein or even collagen. If your protein powder is not flavored (collagen) you may want to add ½ of a banana for sweetness.
This recipe was written using vanilla protein, but feel free to experiment! Use chocolate protein for a chocolate peanut butter cup flavor (you could also add cacao powder along with your vanilla protein powder for the same effect). Use strawberry protein for a peanut butter and jelly flavored shake.
Peanut Butter: Don’t have peanut butter flour? You can substitute that for 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. Also if you cannot have peanuts, there is now powdered almond butter that would be great in this recipe!
If you need a nut-free option, you can use 2 tbsp. sunbutter or tahini in place of the peanut flour and peanut butter in the recipe.
Cauliflower: you can use frozen spinach, frozen kale or frozen steamed zucchini (will change the color) in place of the cauliflower.
Chia Seeds: You could also use freshly ground flax seeds (store them in the freezer to keep them from spoiling) or omit the chia seeds completely.
