Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Packed Shake!

October 10, 2013 — 7 Comments

I was recently asked if I used Greek Yogurt in my smoothies, and I said that I didn’t because I make mine with protein powder. 1 scoop of protein powder has 27 g of protein, so I never really thought about adding any more. Well, then I was curious about the texture. I assumed it would be really thick, and that the extra protein would really stay with me for a long time, so why not give it a try. I made one the other day with 1/2 scoop of protein powder, and it was really good, but out of curiosity, and trying to eat more protein anyhow, I made THIS one yesterday.

Ingredients
  1. 1 Scoop of Vanilla Protein Powder (27 g of protein)
  2. 4 oz (Yes, I did weigh it on my scale) of Greek Nonfat Plain Yogurt (11 g of protein)
  3. 2 T. of PB2 Chocolate (4 g of protein)
  4. 1 Frozen Banana
  5. 1 C of cold water
  6. 1/2-3/4 C of ice
Instructions
  1. Put all dry ingredients in a blender, then add wet ingredients. Blend well.
Notes
  1. I count this as 4 SmartPoints. I do not have smoothies very often.
  2. If you eat smoothies or treats made with blended fruit several times a week, Weight Watchers suggest that you count them as more points because those calories can really add up!
  3. When I enter this recipe into the WW Recipe Builder as a drink, it is 9 SmartPoints.

    I can find it in most of the grocery stores in my area, but I think I first purchased it at Target. I also saw the other day that a named brand peanut butter company is now making it. Maybe it was Jiffy?

    I hope you can find it. I love it in smoothies!

  4. Never mind, I googled PB2 and see it is a powdered peanut butter, will have to see if I can find it.
    Thanks…Jo C

  5. Where’s the peanut butter?

    I do apologize. You are correct! I’ve revised that post to reflect the points calculated in the WW Recipe builder, and it is 8 PointsPlus, not 6 PointsPlus. Thank you for letting me know!

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Are you sure you are calculating your points correctly?? You have to put it into a recipe builder rather than just adding up the points of each individual thing because the points may add up to be higher than what you think they are. Especially because you are using 3 sources of protein which adds a lot of points. I made a smoothie very similar to this *without* greek yogurt and it was 10 points. Please be more careful with this!! People will believe anything they find on the internet.
