Gingerbread Protein Shake Recipe

Protein Shake Ingredients

1 scoop vanilla protein powder (graham cracker or cinnamon would also work) 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger 1 packet stevia (optional) 1 1/4 cups skim milk or water 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 pinch of cloves (optional)

Gingerbread is usually most popular around the holidays, but why limit such a tasty treat to just a few months out the year when it’s easy to enjoy the snappy taste of gingerbread in the form of a post-workout shake.

I drink this year-round and it’s inspired by my mom’s gingerbread cookies that she makes for me every year. Something about drinking this just brings back so many memories.

Feel free to play around with the ingredients a bit to get the taste right. I like to add 1 packet of Stevia but you may leave it out or add more if you’d like. If you really want a thicker shake, as always, feel free to add a tablespoon of cottage cheese or vanilla greek yogurt.

I know a lot of people enjoy drinking these dessert-like protein shakes in more of a milk shake form. Nothing beats having a gingerbread shake on a summer morning!
