While you’re at home practicing social distancing, you may be having increased cravings for sweets, especially chocolate. It’s a well-known fact that stressful times can activate an enhanced desire for sugar in the brain – and being in the house more, (in closer proximity to your food pantry and kitchen), doesn’t help either.
Why not get ahead of the game by removing all foods that don’t serve your ultimate well-being at this time? Instead, you can stock your pantry with healthy staples that not only nourish your body, but also satisfy your taste buds… like protein shakes.
One extremely popular, (yet typically unhealthy), indulgent duo is that of peanut butter and chocolate. As you know, you’ll find this flavor combo in candies, ice cream, cakes, shakes, and just about every type of baked good out there. Though it’s pretty much hard to resist this sinful combination, you don’t have to with this amazing Peanut Butter Cup Shake – featuring all the rich and nutty flavors of the popular candy without the sugar and additives!
Made with 310 Chocolate Meal Replacement Shake, unsweetened flax milk, 310 Peanut Butter Powder, peanut butter, rolled oats, ice, and butter extract (which is optional), this indulgent shake is ideal for satisfying even the most intense sweet tooth. With 24g of protein and 15g of nutritious fats, you’ll also give your body and mind the perfect, superior “fuel” when drinking this delicious sweet treat. Enjoy it in place of a meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner; as a midday healthy snack; as a pre- or post-workout protein shake; or as a guilt-free dessert.

Cocoa-Rich, Plant-Based Proteins: 310 Chocolate Shake
The first ingredient to give this shake recipe its thick, creamy cocoa flavor is 310 Chocolate Meal Replacement Shake! This protein powder not only provides immense chocolaty flavor, but it’s naturally-sweetened with plant-based Stevia, so you can enjoy it guilt-free. It also contains a unique blend of plant-based proteins, (pea, brown rice, and hemp), essential vitamins and minerals, and gut-healthy probiotics to support enhanced digestive and immune health.
Let’s talk about the protein in 310 Chocolate Shake… If you’re interested in toning up while slimming down, or simply maintaining lean muscle, it all starts with this vital macronutrient. Protein plays a huge role in maximizing the results of your workouts, increasing energy, and promoting feelings of fullness, so you still feel satisfied hours after finishing your shake!
On that note, you can easily and deliciously increase your daily protein consumption with 310 Chocolate Shake, (which offers an impressive 15g of protein per serving). The mix of plant-based proteins in the formula can provide your body with the necessary tools to not only build, but also maintain lean muscle mass, and aid in weight loss.
In addition, protein may be a star feature of the shake, but there are also so many more standout ingredients. Each 310 Chocolate Shake serving also features optimal dietary fiber, 20 essential vitamins and minerals, organic superfood greens to further boost your immunity, and probiotics for immune and digestive health.
The bottom line is, you should definitely consider adding 310 Shake to your healthy food pantry options – and the 310 Chocolate Shake makes a phenomenal addition to this dessert-like recipe!
Highly-Nutritious Fats: Peanut Butter
The next ingredient is of course, peanut butter! This creamy, nutty butter not only offers classic, addictive flavor, but an abundance of heart healthy fats including omega-6 fatty acids and oleic acids. Alongside from the added richness this sumptuous ingredient provides, the nutrient-dense fat is also an excellent source of protein and fiber, helping you maintain sustained energy levels throughout the day.
Additionally, to even further boost the peanut butter flavor, we added 310 Peanut Butter Powder into this recipe to bring out even more nuttiness! Although peanut butter is highly-nutritious, it’s still important to use it in moderation to ensure you’re not adding too many calories and saturated fats into your diet. 310 Peanut Butter Powder offers a solution… being significantly low in calories, it’s the perfect way to include more peanut butter flavor into any recipe!
Excellent Fiber Boost: Rolled Oats
Finally, we included rolled oats in this recipe to complement the nutty flavors in this Peanut Butter Cup Shake, as well as add more texture and thickness to the shake. While you may view oats as a popular stand-alone breakfast item, they’re also a wonderful addition to your protein smoothies. This is because they’re high in beta-glucan – a type of fiber that keeps your digestive system strong, and keeps you feeling full while helping to reduce bad cholesterol levels (LDL) in the body.
