Protein Shake Ingredients3-4 low fat vanilla wafers 4 frozen strawberries Handful of ice cubes 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder 1/4 cup almond milk (optional) 8 ounces water
Summer is here and nothing beats the taste of fresh strawberries on a summer afternoon. I post a lot of recipes with strawberries in them and this is another. Strawberries help me get my sugar fix without loading up my body with unnatural sugars and other artificial ingredients in candy or sweets.
Strawberry shortcake used to be something I gorged on in the summers, but instead I make this shake. It tastes a lot like strawberry shortcake but is packed with protein and healthy nutrients.
This is going to be a little higher in calories and sugar because of the vanilla wafers. You can leave those out if you are trying to stay super clean…but then it is more of a strawberry protein shake. 🙂
If anybody has a good, healthier alternative to vanilla wafers leave a comment and I’ll update my recipe!
Protein Shake Ingredients12 ounces almond milk 2 scoops protein powder (vanilla or strawberry) 8 strawberries 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed (optional) Handful of ice cubes
Strawberries are a very versatile and tasty ingredient for a protein shake. You can mix them with a number of different flavors of protein powder including vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and more.
This works great with some ground flaxseed to add some additional nutrition value. Sometimes I will add in a few scoops of oatmeal too if I am drinking this in the morning. Frozen strawberries are cheap and can be bought in large bags from the grocery store. You can blend them frozen too.
This shake is sweet, tasty and best of all — healthy! Drink this strawberry shake to start building mass and burning fat today! Enjoy this one!
