Chocolate & Peanut Butter Protein ShakeRECIPE BY IVY MANNING | PHOTO BY ERIN KUNKEL

Is there a better post-workout buddy than a delicious, chocolate shake? But put away the processed protein powder. This version is packed with natural protein, thanks to creamy Greek yogurt and peanut butter. It borrows sweetness from bananas and dates, and pumps up the potassium with coconut water. Give it a whirl for your next post-workout breakfast.

INGREDIENTS

½ cup (4 oz/125 g) non-fat Greek yogurt
½ cup (4 fl oz/125 ml) unsweetened coconut water
1 ripe banana
1 Medjool date, pitted (about ¾ oz/20 g)
1½ tablespoons unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder
1½ tablespoons creamy peanut butter, no salt or sugar added
½ vanilla bean or ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ cup (4 oz/125 g) ice cubes

INSTRUCTIONS

In a blender, combine the yogurt, coconut water, banana, date, cocoa powder, and peanut butter. Use a paring knife to split the vanilla bean lengthwise, and use the tip of the knife to scrape out the sticky seeds. Discard the pod and add the vanilla seeds to the blender (or add the pure vanilla extract). Blend until combined. Add the ice and blend until smooth.

Pour the smoothie into a tall glass and serve cold.

Makes 1 serving.
