Strawberry Shortcake Protein Shake

Strawberry Shortcake is delicious, but it is rarely healthy. One of my favorite types of recipe development is taking my favorite desserts and turning them into healthy, nutrient dense protein shakes and smoothies. This protein shake is vegan, gluten-free, and packed with plant based protein- a perfect post workout recovery drink or nutrient dense breakfast!

Many almond milks and almond butters contain unhealthy ingredients so it is best to buy organic or make your own. Remember to use Perfect Plant Protein to make sure your shake is packed with the healthiest protein possible.

Strawberry Shortcake Protein Shake
10 frozen strawberries
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp. almond butter
1 tbsp. raw honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. Perfect Coconut Oil
1 scoop Perfect Plant Protein

Directions: Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. If you’d like to make the shake thicker, simply toss in a handful of ice cubes and blend again. Need it sweeter? Double the honey. Protein shakes are awesome because you can totally customize them based on your needs and preferences.
