Sometimes I crave these Sea-Salted Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups, and sometimes I crave them for breakfast. And when that happens, I go ahead and make this Chocolate Almond Butter Shake. This quick smoothie is a  healthy and nutritious breakfast to fuel up for the day. It’s Dairy-free, paleo-friendly, and SO simple!

Ingredients Needed

  • Almond Milk
  • Chocolate Grass-Fed Protein Powder
  • Frozen Banana
  • Chopped Chocolate
  • Creamy Almond Butter
  • Honey 
  • Pinch Cinnamon

If you wanted to swap out the almond butter with peanut butter, I can attest it tastes remarkably similar to a peanut butter cup. It’s so good! Also if you didn’t want to use protein powder, you could swap it out with 1 scoop of collagen peptides and 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder.

  • Tried this the second I saw it on Lexi’s blog! It was divine and so easy to whip up. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

  • Hi Lexi made this delicious shake today…..I am so excited to have found you again and your fabulous blog!
    I used coconut protein powder and added cocoa powder. Loved it…making pancakes in the am!

  • Lexi, your recipe sounds awesome! I’m all about grass-fed dairy; which protein powder are you using? I’ve searched for grass-fed whey protein powders and have found that many of them are whey concentrates. One grass-fed whey source had 90mg of cholesterol per serving! That is an insane amount, especially because the type of cholesterol in whey is OXIDIZED cholesterol – the absolute worst, most harmful type for the heart and for your health. It doesn’t matter how well-fed the cows were when the cholesterol is that high. Please check the label on your whey protein powder. You’re always better off getting a whey isolate as opposed to concentrate because of this cholesterol issue. And, if you are using a grass-fed whey isolate, which one is it! Thanks for your help, and hopefully you find my advice helpful as well!
