Sugar-free, Low Carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake

Are you trying to limit your sugar intake?  Staying low carb?  Diabetic?  Just wondering what to do with flavorless protein?  I have had this shake recipe on repeat for the last few days, and I can't get enough.

Chickens in My Kitchen Sugar-Free, Low Carb, Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake

1 1/2 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk (could use other nondairy milk choices as well)
2 T unsweetened cocoa powder (I have been using Hershey's Special Dark)
2 T PB2 (slightly less calories and carbs than regular peanut butter)
1 scoop Arbonne Daily Protein Boost
Half a ripe avocado (to add some healthy fats. Stick with me here, you can't taste it at all, and the texture is AMAZING)
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Liquid Stevia to taste (start with one dropperful, and add from there)

Put all ingredients in good quality blender, and blend well.  Add ice, and blend until ice is your desired level of crushed.  I personally like mine smooth, like a milkshake.

If you are not trying to stay low carb, there are so many yummy add ins you could use: bananas or berries, chocolate chips, coconut.....

SO good, and so healthy.  And as a bonus, this recipe kept me full long past my usual dinnertime.

Proud of you all for moving towards your goals!  Tell us, what is your number one health goal right now? Mine is to stick my clean eating plan.  So far, I am 100% on track since Jan 1 (cliche much? Indeed. But it has always been a successful time for my goal-setting).  I'd love to hear yours...
