I don’t know what to do with myself right now. I’m still trying to process this milkshake (smoothie? shake?).
It tastes like ice cream. Like real life creamy ice cream. It’s also refined sugar free and has 27 (!) grams of protein.
The secret? Egg white protein powder. Egg whites lend themselves to incredible fluffiness–after all they are the key ingredient to meringue–and take this milkshake to another level. (That said, I’m sure regular vanilla protein powder would taste good too.)
There’s a diner by my house that my friends and I will go to sometimes, and I’ve always admired the people who order milkshakes with their breakfast. I’ll probably never be able to stomach that, but I feel pretty close now.
Breakfast Protein Milkshake
Makes 1 giant serving, or 2 regular servings. The picture shows maybe 1/3 of the entire milkshake. Maybe.
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk*
- 1 packet Jay Robb Egg White Protein Vanilla
- ½ a banana, frozen
- handful of ice
- mix ins (I added ½ cup frozen cherries, frozen berries or even a tablespoon of cocoa would be delicious too)
1) In a blender combine all the ingredients. Blend. Enjoy.
*I used So Delicious unsweetened almond milk plus! It’s my favorite.
