I make this peanut butter chocolate Shakeology drink every other day or so as a meal replacement. It’s a way for me to get all of the nutrients I need and get rid of those cravings I get for sweet stuff during the day.

peanut butter and chocolate shake

I am usually a huge snacker, and replacing one meal a day with a protein smoothie or Shakeology (I alternate every other day) is the only thing I’ve found that helps me avoid digging for chocolate or candy at night.

First thing in the morning this is even better if you make it with coffee ice cubes!


  • chocolate Shakeology (you could use a Shakeology substitute, too!)
  • peanut butter
  • chia seeds
  • almond milk
  • ice cubes (or coffee ice cubes)
  • Blender, to blend all of the ingredients and enjoy! It really is that simple.

  1. Go I’m just about to start the 21 day fix for the first time – these receipts look great! I want to get it right so can I check your instructions – does 1’T’ mean 1 teaspoon? And 1.5 ‘C’ mean 1.5 Cups?


    1. Hi Beccy,

      T means tablespoon (t means teaspoon), and yes, C is cup.

      Good luck!

      1. Thanks!!! One more quick question – how big is one scoop of the protein powder? Is it a set measurement or does it not matter?

  2. Deborah L Green says:

    Is there anything that can replace the “protein shake mix” I have tried different brands and ingredients and there must be one constant that is in all of them that my stomach will not tolerate. It is distressing because it would make life a lot easier, but immediately after I drink it I get extremely nauseated. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Have you tried a vegan protein powder? Vega is a great one – maybe it’s the whey that is bothering your stomach?

      1. Deborah,

        I have noticed the same thing with some protein shakes! Shakeology is the only one that my body has tolerated after some getting used to it. I tried the Vegan one and it was exactly what I needed!! I would highly recommend a vegan shake!! Good luck!!

  3. Hi Becca! I love your blog!! Thank you for making meal plans for the upper brackets!! One quick question on this recipe – I love the combo of chocolate shakeo & pb!! I was just wondering where you got the 1 Blue container from? When I printed the recipe, I get 1 Red, 1 Orange & 2 Tsps. Thanks so much!!

    1. Hey April! Thank you :) The only thing I can think of is that the chia seeds or milk was blue at one time? I’m heading to recalculate the containers now! Thank you so much for pointing this out!

  4. 5 stars
    I’ve had some not-so-pleasant experiences with Shakeology in the past, but I wanted to try the samples I’ve had since forever. This recipe inspired me to try the (vegan) chocolate flavor again and it turned out great! It seems so simple, but using enough ice, adding peanut butter, and using almond milk in place of water, makes a world of difference. I can’t wait to try it with coffee ice cubes – sounds amazing!
