If you are concerned about the amount of fat in this shake you can replace 1 tbsp of chia seeds and 1 tbsp hemp seeds with 2 tbsp spirulina which will give you even more of a healthy dose of nutrients because spirulina is absolutely bursting with nutrients.
*Please note that all nut butters have roughly the same amount of protein so even though peanut butter has been around the longest and is probably the cheapest don’t be afraid to try different nut butters such as almond, hazelnut or cashew and whatever you choose make sure that it is a pure nut butter without any un-needed additives.
For my reasons behind this shake please read my article 'The Protein Issue'
