Protein Shake Ingredients1.5 scoops vanilla protein powder 2 tablespoons cottage cheese 2 tablespoons fat free cream cheese 1 tablespoon cocoa powder Couple drops of red food coloring (optional obviously) 1 packet of stevia Handful of ice cubes
Muscle Milk, Nature’s Plus and a few other protein powder companies make a red velvet protein powder mix. I’ve never tried any personally, but I’m sure they are good. (Aside: Muscle Milk is consistently the best tasting protein blends out there. They are just a little too high in fats/carbs for me.)
But having a 2.5 or 5 lb tub of only red velvet protein powder for several months is daunting. I enjoy fruit or sweeter flavors every now and then, but not every day.
I came with this quick and easy red velvet protein shake recipe so I can quench my craving without investing in a massive supply of red velvet protein powder.
Works great for a dessert-type shake late at night if you have some protein you need to add to your diet. Can be a post workout shake too.
This is higher in fat than most shakes I post here, but it’s good to reward yourself every now and then while still taking in some protein. You may have to add a little more protein powder depending on your desired taste/consistency.
Enjoy this one!
