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.

  1. 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!

  2. Hi Lexi made this delicious shake today…..I am so excited to have found you again and your fabulous blog!
