Vanilla Milkshake Protein Smoothie Recipe
This recipe is for a healthy milkshake-alternative protein smoothie with a strong vanilla flavor. It’s similar in consistency to a milkshake, but is actually healthy. Empty sugar-calories found in traditional milkshakes are not going to help you get fit or healthy.
This milkshake alternative will help you gain or maintain muscle as it had a large amount of protein and calories. It will also boost your immune system with vitamins C, E, A and selenium.
A large McDonals McCafé vanilla shake has 820 calories, 18g of protein, 23g of fat and 135g of carbs. Some of the main ingredients are sugar and corn syrup. A Burger King vanilla milk shake (20oz.) has 930 calories, with 17g of protein, 23g of fat and 163g of carbs. I did not see a list of ingredients on the Burger King website. By making your own milkshake alternative drink you are getting more healthy calories, more nutrition, and more protein. I love milkshakes, but I love the gains even more, that’s why I drink healthy alternatives.
- 1 Vanilla Boost Plus
- 1/2 Cup Milk
- 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein
- 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
- 1 tbsp Almond Butter
- 1 tbsp Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 Cup Oats
- 1 Banana
- If possible, grind the oats up separately before adding them to the blender. You should be able to do this in a coffee grinder if you own one.
- Add the ingredients into a blender. Try not to add the powder, such as the protein in first as it tends to clump to the bottom of the blender if you do that.
- Blend and say goodbye to unhealthy milkshakes forever.
- Add ice cubes to make the shake cold like a true ice-cream milkshake.
- Try other flavors of Boost Plus and protein powder to create different flavored milkshake alternatives; chocolate, strawberry, etc.
