Confession: I’m a total smoothie junkie. There are days that I could eat them breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I love to make my protein smoothies really thick, almost ice cream shake-like. That way they seem more like a decadent treat than a boring protein shake.
The secret to the perfect thick, super yummy protein smoothie is frozen fruit and a great tasting protein powder.
Lately I’m obsessed with this Double Cherry Vanilla Protein Shake…
½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 scoop of your favorite vanilla whey protein powder
1 tablespoon Organic Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate (concentrate, not regular juice)
1 cup frozen cherries
In your blender, blend the almond milk, protein powder, and Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate on low for about 20 to 30 seconds.
Stop once and scrape the sides with a spatula (sometimes the protein powder can stick to the sides).
Next, add in the frozen cherries and blend on low, working up to medium high.
Blend until it reaches a smooth, shake-like consistency.
What’s your favorite protein powder??
