Keto Protein Shake Recipe

This Keto-Friendly, Protein-Packed Shake Is the Perfect End to Your Workout

After a tough workout, there may be nothing more satisfying than a protein-packed shake — but if you're on the keto diet, you've likely noticed that many of these drinks are also loaded with sugar. So, what's a low-carb gal to do? Make this recipe, of course.

High in protein and low in carbs, this shake is every peanut-butter-and-chocolate-lover's dream. Finish it off with optional — but highly recommended — toppings like whipped cream, even more peanut butter, and keto-friendly chocolate chips. You can even tweak the recipe if you want to make it more friendly for weight loss or certain dietary restrictions.

The recipe serves two, and that's intentional — this shake is so delicious, you'll want to share it with a workout buddy, keto or not. As with any smoothie, the best part is how quickly it comes together. You'll need just five minutes and your blender, so grab the ingredients and let's start!
