Protein Vanilla Milkshake

Aren't milkshakes the best?


The creamy texture, the rich taste, the deeply satisfying feeling you get after finishing one.  All the goodness of ice cream, threw a straw.

And yet, most are so unhealthy.

One Friendly's Double Thick Vanilla Milkshake can pack in 770 calories, 32 grams fat, and 106 grams carbs.  Whew!


But what if I told you that you could have something even better, without the side of guilt?

That's just what this Protein Vanilla Milkshake is!

16 grams protein, 200 calories, and only 2 grams fat.  It's so healthy, you could eat it for breakfast... and that's just what I did!


Protein Vanilla Millshake - recipe inspiration can be found here
(makes one serving)
  • 1/2 cup nonfat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 banana chopped
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp sugar
The night (or a couple hours) before you want to have your milkshake blend all your ingredients together in a blender.  Once smooth, pour into a small container or ice cube tray and freeze.  When frozen, break mixture into small pieces (or just keep as ice cubes) and blend again until the mixture takes on a creamy texture.  You may have to add some more milk if your blender is not strong enough.  After your milkshake is it's desired texture, pour it into a cup, top with sprinkles, and enjoy!




Guys, this is big.

Do you realize that right in front of your eyes, is a breakfast milkshake?



I bet those aren't words you ever thought you'd here together.

Here, though, they go hand in hand...and then into your greedy hands.


Enjoy!
