Protein powder in the 80’s and even 90’s was absolutely terrible! I remember the first protein shakes (the Body for Life brands) and I still have PTSD from trying to choke those down.

But the last 2 decades have seen a HUGE improvement in protein shakes! My goodness. If I had the protein flavor options back then that we do today, I would have been thrilled.

Which is why I’m on a quest to find the tastiest protein powders! I’ve got several protein shakes coming out in the next few days.

But just so you know, even though I’m using specific brands for these protein drinks, you don’t need to buy the fancy flavors. I’ll share some options to modify any shake with just vanilla protein!

For this protein shake recipe, I used the Nutter Butter Protein powder from the brand Ghost. (Amazon has it or the brand has a store on it’s website here) You don’t need to use this in making your own. In fact, while the protein powder actually tasted pretty good, the peanut butter flavor was very mild. I can actually get a stronger peanut butter taste by adding powdered peanut butter to vanilla protein powder.

And at the end of the day, the Nutter Butter Flavor, was really just peanut butter flavor. But, if you just love the brand Nutter Butter, grab the Ghost protein powder.

How to make this Nutter Butter protein shake

Most of my protein shakes follow a similar pattern, but I vary them just a bit! The 4 staple ingredients for a protein smoothie I generally use include:

  1. 1 scoop protein powder (usually 30 grams of powder so the drinks stays around 120-140 calories.
  2. The liquid I use skim milk or almond milk, but only 1/2 cup. I like a thick shake, not a runny one.
  3. I love adding 1 tablespoon of sugar free pudding mix. I don’t know if this thickens it up too much, but just enough for me to feel like it’s a thick shake.
  4. And finally, some extra flavorings or toppings to make it feel like an Ice Cream shake. Like whipped cream and syrups. For this one, I added peanut butter powder, mixed with a little water to drizzle on top. Then, whipped cream of course- cause if you have been following me, you KNOW I’m obsessed with whipped cream!

Modifications if you don’t have Nutter Butter Protein Powder

I’m not a big fan of buying a protein powder unless you’re going to love the whole canister! So, if you don’t want to buy the whole thing, but want to try this protein shake, just make this one change!

Instead of the Nutter Butter protein powder use 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (any brand), and add 1 tablespoon peanut butter powder to the blender. This should basically give you almost the SAME taste as the Nutter Butter Powder.

Can you make protein drinks ahead of time?

Ok- This is going to come down to personal preference. My husband loves to mix up a protein shake and leave it in the fridge for the next day. I however, like a FRESH blended shake.

But, I also think a very cold shake tastes better than a warm shake. So, my compromise is that I will make it ahead of time. Let the pudding thicken up the shake in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. But, before I drink it, I reblend.

You can re-blend if you have a blender whisk inside a shaker bottle too. I just prefer to throw it in the blender.
