Once I surpassed running four miles at a time, I realized I needed a good protein shake to help support my athletic ambitions, but most protein shakes I’ve tried are disgusting! Plus, I am 95% dairy free, so I needed to find an alternative that would support and satisfy me.
1 scoop unflavored Pea Protein
2 Tbsp Cacoa powder
1 Tbsp Swerve
5-8 drops of liquid Stevia
1/2 can Coconut Cream
1/3-2/3 cup Almond Milk
ice as desired
( 1 scoop of collagen peptides unflavored) if desired
- I throw all the ingredients into the blender/food processor except for the ice and blend well.
- I check for thickness and sweetness, add more almond milk or Stevia if needed
- I toss in a handful of ice and blend
- I love to put my shake in a mason jar half filled with ice…why? I don’t know it just tastes better!
I would highly recommend using collagen peptides to help with muscle and joint health. It has really made a difference with my autoimmune symptoms, but everyone should support their muscles and joints! I do not get the gritty taste with this shake like most whey protein shakes. I would mess with the measurements to find what works for you taste wise, I use the coconut cream because it gives me a higher fat consumption. This could also be a meal replacement but of course try not to consume to much protein.
By the way this is kid approved, so you know it must be good! We throw in some whipped cream sometimes 🙂 Coconut whipped cream by the way!
