Make This Delicious Protein-Packed “PRETZEL SHAKE” for an Early Morning Energy Boost!

There are 28 grams of healthy protein in this super-delicious smoothie. Great for breakfast or any time of the day.

The pretzels in this recipe might seem to be a bit strange in a protein shake, but they add a touch of salt that really brings out the chocolate and peanut butter flavors. And then using cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips in this smoothie makes it a lot healthier with more texture.

Here’s a great article about cacao nibs if you are interested in learning more about all of the health benefits such as the antioxidants and fiber found in cacao nibs.


  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I used whey)
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 tablespoon natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon cacao nibs
  • 5 mini salted pretzels
  • 1/2 cup milk or water
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes

Here’s all you need to do:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. Add more liquid or ice to reach desired consistency.

  2. Top with crushed pretzels, cacao nibs, and chocolate syrup!
