Strawberry Banana Protein Milkshake

Adulthood is:

Deciding to have a strawberry milkshake for dinner.

Make that two milkshakes.


Adulthood is:

Deciding to make the milkshake with frozen bananas and protein powder instead of ice cream (although I admit a few bites of ice cream were consumed during the process).


Adulthood is:

Dousing the milkshakes in homemade chocolate fudge sauce…sugar free, fat free hot fudge.


Adulthood is:

Taking rushed photos as the fudge melts the milkshake.

Trying to eat the milkshake out of the cup.

Giving up and throwing the milkshake in a bowl (and topping with more hot fudge, of course).


Ahh, much better.

Adulthood is:

Realizing you forgot to add whipped cream on top, deciding to do so next time, and deciding next time will be tomorrow.

Strawberry Banana Protein Milkshake

Makes so, so much milkshake. I couldn’t finish it and had to freeze the rest.

  • 1 scoop Jay Robb egg white protein powder
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 1 ½ cups milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • handful of ice (I added about ¾ of a cup)
  1. Blend all the ingredients in a high powered blender. If you’re using a weaker blender, thin out with more milk as needed.
  2. Top with hot fudge. I was experimenting and tried making a sugar free hot fudge not expecting much, but it was so good that I’m going to perfect its recipe tomorrow, and post about it soon.

Other notes:

  • If you’re feeling extra fancy, add ½ cup of vanilla ice cream. I instead ate a couple spoonful while I was blending the smoothie.
  • Optional: Wanna feel even healthier? add 1 tsp psyllium husk or ground flax seeds.

Breakfast (Protein) Milkshake


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.
