🚨 STOP SCROLLING! STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING! I have a low point, high protein, milkshake that you are going to die for!! 🚨
This peanut butter and chocolate protein milkshake is one of my greatest inventions. It literally tastes like you are drinking a milkshake, yet it is full of protein and only 3 points!! How is that even possible!! Keeps me full all morning long and craving more delicious milkshake!
I added some sugar free whip cream and sprinkles on top, not included in the points, just for a pretty photo. I really didn’t need it though, it was so good without the added toppings. I made two for the photo too! I was actually making six of them for a bunch of family members that were over. Everyone goes crazy for these!!
What You Will Need:
The ingredients are so simple! Plus, you can change them out depending on your flavor preference, or if you just want to keep up a different flavor each day.
- Sugar free pudding mix
- Protein powder
- Frozen water (ya know, ice)
For the PB2, I typically use the chocolate PB2 flavor. While I do love peanut butter, I do like to keep it toned down a little by using the chocolate one. My mom and sister are peanut butter fanatics and prefer this with just the regular PB2 peanut butter powder. It is totally up to you if you want a more peanut butter or more chocolate flavor. Or, fun idea, mix them if you can’t decide!
For the sugar free pudding mix, I typically always do the Jell-O brand chocolate flavor. I love the chocolate PB2, mixed with the chocolate Jell-O, it creates a really chocolate-y milkshake. However, I do like this with the white chocolate mix and the regular peanut butter PB2, for a super peanut butter flavor milkshake. Or the cheesecake Jell-O mix with the chocolate PB2 for a chocolate cheesecake flavor. You can mix and match as much and often as you want. If you find any delicious combos, leave them in the comments below.
For the protein powder, I use Herbalife. They do have a chocolate or vanilla flavor but I keep with the vanilla because it provides a more neutral base. I think they are a little pricey and I like to keep my flavor options open so I just use the vanilla and add flavoring to it. You can order some Herbalife protein powder here. Use this link, it looks like it is currently $20 off.
Some information on Herbalife:
- 24 vitamins and minerals.
- 15g of heart-healthy soy protein.
- Just 5g of carbs per serving.

I use water in this recipe because it is obviously free and zero points. My cousins love to use plain unsweetened almond milk. It makes it a little more creamy and it only adds one extra point. Let me know what you prefer!
Then, just add ice until your desired thickness. I like mine pretty thick so that way it lasts until I get to work. I suggest you start with about 1 cup of ice and then slowly work your way up to more, if you even need anymore. Depending on your desired thickness, 1 cup might be good. I just like mine super thick and super frozen.
I pour mine into a Yeti cup so it stays frozen for long. I usually make it and then pop it into the freezer while I clean up and pack up my stuff. This usually takes about 10 minutes. That way the milkshake is extra frozen and won’t immediately melt on my commute to work.
Another tip/suggestion is to add collagen! This is my favorite powdered collagen. It apparently helps grow your hair and nails, give your better skin and stronger bones. I definitely notice my hair and nails though! Click here to order collagen.
Another option is to add in a banana. While WW says to count blended fruits, you can do what you want to do. It tastes really good with the peanut butter but I have only done this once, I don’t find it necessary. But my aunt loves to do it this way! or maybe some strawberries with the chocolate! It would be like a chocolate covered strawberry milkshake, YUM!
You can always add another scoop of protein as well. The serving size on the protein powder is two scoops but I typically do one unless I know I won’t be eating lunch for a long time. It’ll just keep you more full while only adding an extra point.
There we have it! Let’s get to the recipe recap.
