Lactose Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake Recipe

About a month ago, I wrote a sponsored post called Lactaid Intolerant vs. Lactose Sensitive. There is an interesting difference between the two, but regardless of which dairy camp you are in, there are milk-based choices one can make to keep the negative effects at bay, as I mentioned in the post.

I wanted to follow up with another sponsored post that provided some recipe ideas that are great if you are lactose sensitive or lactose intolerant. As most people know, Lactaid is one of the biggest suppliers of lactose-free dairy products. Since it doesn’t have the sugar (that makes lactose sensitive and intolerant individuals feel yucky), it is a good product to have stocked in the fridge and freezer (Lactaid milk, ice cream, cheese, yogurt, butter, etc.)

So I decided to share a recipe that I have been using since 2001. I would buy a really expensive protein shake at the gym. After watching people make it for so many years, I knew I could do it at home. It saves money and I can control the ingredients. So it makes for a great option if you can’t have traditional milk or even soy, a great option for a mid-afternoon snack or a meal replacement.

Here is the recipe: Lactose-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake

  • Take one cup of Lactaid milk, a scoop of peanut butter, one banana, and chocolate sauce to taste. (I like a lot of chocolate so I probably use a good two tablespoons.)
  • Sometimes I also brew a small espresso and add it for more of a mocha flavor, but that is optional, especially if you are making this for the kiddos.
  • If I have this for breakfast or a meal replacement, I also add a scoop of chocolate protein powder.
  • Place all of this in a blender, along with some ice, and blend till smooth. Serve it in a glass, or a travel coffee mug to keep it cold on the go.

This is great for kids for a school day morning, or when we parents can’t sit and eat. (Which is like, all the time!)

Frankly, it tastes like dessert, but it has calcium, fruit, and good protein. {As I write this, I realize I need to go make one now…be right back.}

Slurp.

So yummy. Okay, where was I. Oh, yes, if you are looking for more recipes, head to Lactaid.com. There are some great ones. Or check out my Food Sensitivities Pinterest Board.

If anything, it gives us something new to cook rather than the same old/same old!

Enjoy!
