Chunky Monkey Ice Cream Protein Shake

2 Cups
1 hr 5 min

This Chunky Monkey Protein Shake is made with frozen bananas, collagen and yogurt and topped with walnuts and chocolate chunks for a drink that tastes like the ice cream flavor! Thick, creamy and perfect for a breakfast or post-workout smoothie.

Replies to an Insta story question a while ago said you guys wanted funky protein shake ideas, so here’s one!

Little secret though: I didn’t actually have the Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream to compare this with. But considering that’s a banana flavored ice cream and has walnuts and fudge, I think this is pretty close.

I guess there isn’t any fudge in here, but I think I’d prefer chocolate chips or chunks over fudge. All for that crunch!
