This protein shake tastes like a milkshake form of my favorite strawberry protein mug cake and your taste buds will NOT believe it’s healthy.
I mean, waking up a bowl of protein cauliflower oats is good and all but WHAT IF you could start the day with something that tasted like a milkshake instead?
I know, you’re all ears now.
Why you will LOVE This Recipe
I LOVE a good shake or smoothie. I mean, who could possibly say no to a fruity, creamy dreamy banana cashew flax seed smoothie or a banana vanilla orange smoothie? NOT ME! Today’s strawberries and cream protein shake is going to level up your smoothie game for so many reasons. First off, it’s made with healthy ingredients that you’ll feel good about fueling your body with. It’s also packed with protein which means it will taste great AND keep you full and energized until your next snack or meal. Last, but certainly not least, this smoothie is super easy to throw together, and everyone in your crew is going to love it- even the picky eater in your household. Say hello to an easy, on-the-go breakfast or snack for anytime of day that is absolutely delicious!
When looking for a smoothie or shake recipe, I tend to lean towards choosing the ones with the most flavor and the best health benefits! Who knew that such a healthy and tasty smoothie only requires a few, simply ingredients to whip up? Well now you know! Here are the ingredients you will need to blend up a cool and creamy strawberry protein shake (you could even add in a banana for extra sweetness and creamy goodness to make a strawberry banana protein shake):
- Halved Frozen Strawberries
- Vanilla Protein Powder of choice
- Unsweetened Almond Milk
- Sweetener (optional)
What Protein Powder to Use
Like many strawberry protein shake recipes, this one calls for vanilla protein powder and the choice of which one is totally up to you! I recommend using your go-to protein powder that is tried and true and that you know you will love. Any vanilla whey protein powder is usually a safe bet and will taste GREAT when blended up with the other ingredients in this shake recipe!
How to make a Healthy Strawberry Protein Shake
Blending up a creamy dreamy shake could not be easier! Once you have rounded up the ingredients you will need, it’s time to whip out that blender and get going on your strawberry shake! Here’s how:
Add all the ingredients to a high powered blender. Turn it on and blend at high speed until the shake is smooth.
Pour the finished shake into a glass and add a straw if you want! Serve it up and enjoy!
How much Protein does this Shake Have?
A smoothie with added protein is the PERFECT smoothie to keep you full on those busy mornings instead of leaving you with a rumbling stomach hours before lunch! Protein works wonders because it provides our bodies with energy to tackle whatever is in front of us while ALSO keeping us full so that we don’t need a million snacks on hand to make it until lunch or dinner! This protein shake has over 25g of protein, which will vary slightly depending on the type of protein powder you use to make it.
