Is it too soon to post about another protein shake? I know not all of you are shake people, but while it is fresh in my mind (and my stomach), I just have to share!
Carrot Cake Protein Shake!! MUHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
I love carrot cake and with Easter coming up, this treat has been on my mind. When I woke up this morning, I was ready to give this shake a shot! I was impressed when the flavor was pretty much right on with what I had been hoping for!
I think with a few base ingredients, you could decide what you want to add in based on calories, what you have on hand, and of course by what you like. Note that when I made this shake it was HUGE. I ended up splitting my shake up and drank about half for a breakfast and the rest with a light lunch.
This is what I used:
1 packet of single serving vanilla protein mix
1/4 cup of shredded carrot (I used a food processor and I shredded extra so I wouldn’t have to do it again if I wanted to make another shake tomorrow)
1 tbsp vanilla pudding mix
1/4 tsp butter flavoring
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
dash or two of cinnamon
1/2-3/4 cup of vanilla almond milk
ice (5-10 cubes)
Optional mix ins:
shredded coconut, walnut, rains, crushed pineapple
I used 1/2 cup crushed pineapple and a tbsp coconut, I topped a little bit of raisins, walnut and coconut on top so it would be pretty. Also, what is in that glass is only about half of what was in the blender!
I hope you try this out and find it as good as I did!!
