Strawberry Protein Shake

Strawberry Protein Shake

I am so excited to share one of my three favorite fruity protein shake recipes with you guys.

This is a post I’ve been working on for a while now.  If you remember, way back when, I shared my Peanut Butter, Chocolate and Banana Protein Shake recipe.  At the time, I really didn’t know much about protein shakes other than that one was darn tasty.

Fruity Protein Shakes

Well, I’ve been doing my research.  Which, in ASPC terms, means I’ve been experimenting, tweaking and perfecting recipes.  Oh, and, of course, eating and drinking the finished products.  Such a hard life, I know.

Nowadays, Dustin and I have a protein shake for breakfast pretty much every day.  This made the normal shake get pretty old pretty quick.  I mean…there’s tasty and then there’s downright overdoing it.

Fruity Protein Shakes

So, we set out to find some delicious substitutions for our usual shake.  While we have come up with a good 10ish recipes so far, I wanted to start with my top three fruit-filled shakes (pictured above).  Each of these shakes is extremely easy to make, tastes absolutely delicious and is a nutritious, healthy and perfect way to start (or end!) your day.  While we usually have them for breakfast, we have been known to replace meals and desserts with these puppies.

Oh — if you don’t already have protein powder, one very important thing to consider when picking a flavor and a brand is the TASTE.  Not all protein powders are created equal.  We have gone through a good batch of them and they have been too “proteiny,” meaning they taste artificial, like chemicals and, well, bad.

First up, the Strawberry Protein Shake.  Watch me make this super delicious shake in the video below:

Servings: 1 smoothie
Calories: 304 kcal
Author: A Sweet Pea Chef
Ingredients
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
  • ½ cup full fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • ¾ cup frozen strawberries or mixed berries, if you prefer
  • 3-6 ice cubes I use 5, depending on how thick you like your shakes
Instructions
  1. Starting with the almond milk, place all the ingredients into a blender. Depending on your blender's settings, first start by chopping up the ice and frozen strawberries, followed by pureeing the mixture to create a smooth, even consistency.
  2. In order to get your preferred consistency, you can also start by not adding any ice, following the other steps above. Once all other ingredients are mixed together, slowly add the ice, mix and then test. Continue to add more ice cubes until the desired consistency is met.
  3. If too thick, you can add some more almond milk, little by little. If not sweet enough, add a little more honey.

    bomb.com is all I have to say. I used fat free vanilla Greek yogurt vs plan greek yogurt and wow just wow! I had one for dinner and again this morning for breakfast…really curbed my sweet tooth! Also good to add local honey if you have allergies 🙂

  2. Lacey. I am a newbie to protein shakes. It looks like I can use soy milk, right?
    What do you recommend for a good protein powder?
    Is there any reason I can’t make this into a smoothie with my Ninja?

    1. Hi Diana! Thank you for your question. I’m Lacey’s blog moderator and can help you with this. First of all, welcome to the exciting world of protein shakes! Soy milk is awesome in smoothies/shakes, your Ninja will work great, and for a good protein powder…Lacey generally goes with Pea protein powder. You can learn more about the top 4 protein powders (and how to choose one) here: https://www.asweetpeachef.com/best-protein-powders/

      I hope this helps! Jen.

  6. Can this be made ahead with fresh fruit leaving out the ice cubes? I’ve seen where you can freeze protein shakes

    1. Seriously! Get a grip. Protein powder is something you have to get use to. Just use less to start with and add more as you get use to it. No one said healthy eating is tasty. You have to make the best of the situation. As she said not every protein powder is the same. READ.

    1. Hi Peter! 🙂 I have found it at several local grocery stores (HEB, Whole Foods, etc.). Here’s a link for the company and type I use for this recipe which also has info on where to buy it: http://www.greekgodsyogurt.com/24oz-products/honey-strawberry/

    1. Yes, lactose-free milk will be just fine. Without the protein powder, this shake will still taste good, it just won’t have the high percentage of protein that you get with protein powder. There is still protein in the milk and greek yogurt, though.
