Substitutions: The excellent thing about this simple recipe is it's easy to swap in different ingredients. If you're looking for a higher protein shake, incorporate protein powder -better yet, a plant-based protein powder or chocolate protein powder- for an added boost. Looking to stay full for longer? Substitute peanut butter with almond butter, almond milk with coconut milk, and toss in a frozen banana and spinach for added nutrients.
