Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Smoothie Ingredients
For this plant based protein smoothie I used some items from the regular grocery store, but also two products by Naked Nutrition that I love: the Chocolate Naked Shake and Naked Peanut Butter.
The Chocolate Naked Shake is a plant based chocolate protein and Naked Peanut Butter is a powdered peanut butter that only contains peanuts!
Both products are certified gluten-free and vegan.
As far as vegan shake products go, both of these items are very clean, without unnecessary additives (and in my opinion, they taste great!)
These two products by Naked Nutrition add the bulk of the protein to this shake.
Together, this vegan chocolate peanut butter protein powder blend packs a whopping 24 grams of protein with only 5 grams of sugar.
You can purchase Naked Nutrition products on their website here or on Amazon here.
Shop Naked PB powdered peanut butter on Amazon here.
Naked Nutrition also makes gluten free protein cookies. Check out my full review here.
To make this vegan chocolate protein smoothie, you’ll need:
- Chocolate Naked Shake (gluten free & vegan chocolate protein, find on Amazon here)
- Naked PB (powdered peanut butter find on Amazon here)
- Almond Milk (or gluten-free plant milk of choice)
- Banana (frozen for extra creaminess)
- Crushed ice
- Coconut sugar (optional)
To turn this smoothie into an even more delicious treat, you could add some of these optional toppings:
- Cacao powder
- Gluten-free granola
- Dried berries
How to Make this Vegan Chocolate Protein Smoothie Recipe: step-by step instructions
Creating this shake is so easy.
Simply add all the protein smoothie ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth.
I personally prefer the single-cup blenders for smoothies and shakes because it makes it so easy to grab and go (and it’s less clean up!)
Feel free to top this shake with a dusting of cacao powder or nibs, some gluten-free granola, or dried berries for a boost of flavor and a change in consistency.
Tips & Ingredient Substitutions for This Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake
Protein Shake Thickness:
If it’s too thick, simply add in a splash of water until it’s thinned to the correct consistency.
If it’s too runny, add some more ice!
Can I add vegetables to my protein shake?
Sure you can! I had vegetables in my own (and my kids) smoothies all the time!
Some of my favorites to add are frozen riced cauliflower or fresh/frozen spinach.
Protein Shake Sweetness
This shake naturally has some sweetness from the Chocolate Naked Shake powder and the banana.
But you can add an optional few teaspoons of coconut sugar or your sweetener of choice if you need it!

Totally agree that shakes are better in the single cup blender! Love the cinnamon with the chocolate and peanut butter.
