If you’ve been here for a while, you’ve probably figured out that I love chocolate peanut butter together in just about anything. From popcorn to ice cream to pancakes, there is no better flavor combination than chocolate and peanut butter if you ask me.

How do you make a low carb smoothie?

To make this high protein, low carb chocolate peanut butter smoothie, you blend together creamy, full fat coconut milk with cocoa powder, peanut butter and protein powder. While optional, I love to add vanilla, cinnamon and a pinch of cayenne. A little nutmeg would be delicious too.

Next, add in a bit of water and ice to thicken. The water helps get everything going in the blender and the ice keeps is thick and cold. How much ice you add is up to you – simply add as much as you wish to reach your desired consistency.

What’s the best type of coconut milk to use?

You’ll want to use full fat, Thai style coconut milk for this recipe. This is typically found in a can in the ethnic aisle of the grocery store or you can purchase it online.

Can I replace maple syrup with honey?

Yes absolutely! You can also sweetened with a few chunks of a frozen, ripe banana but that will increase the carb count.

Any type of peanut butter or any type of nut butter works for this recipe. I like all natural, unsweetened peanut butter best.

The best way to prepare this smoothie ahead is to place everything in the blender except the ice the night prior. In the morning, add the ice and blend.

    Hey Liz I posted yesterday and I never got a response back. I’m on a low calorie diet and my Thai kitchen coconut milk says on the back of the can that 1/3 cup is 140 calories. Your Peanut butter chocolate smoothie recipe says it’s 261 calories but it calls for 2/3 cup of coconut milk which would add up to 280 calories. Would you please email me at aprilmcnulty44@gmail.com and please explain what I got wrong or is this a mistake? Thanks so much 😊

    Hey I’m super confused. You say this low carb chocolate peanut butter smoothie recipe is only 261 calories but 1 serving size of Thai coconut milk is 1/3 cup which is 140 calories. In your recipe it calls for 2/3 cup of Thai coconut milk so wouldn’t that make 280 calories? Am I missing something here? Please explain Thanx much appreciated

        Hey Liz thank you so much for your reply. I apologize for my ignorance. I saw the pretty pictures of the smoothie and assumed this recipe ( low carb Chocolate peanut butter) was for one not three servings. I have one more question, this drink would be just for me so can I store the other two servings in the fridge for the next two mornings will it still be good to drink or should I cut down the recipe for one? If I had to cut it down to one serving could you please tell me what measurements it would be? Like 2/3 cup broken down to one serving would be like 4 tablespoons of coconut milk? Thanks so much Liz You are wonderful and your dishes look delish. Gonna try your dinner recipes next.😊

          You could still make the regular amount, and then either keep the leftover in the fridge, or you can freeze it!

    The cayenne is a great touch! I added in some hemp seeds as well. Nice recipe!
