3 Ultimate Protein Shake Recipes

By: Dr. Samantha Stokes, PT, DPT


Are you tired of boring protein shakes? If so, then this is the blog for you. I’m going to share my 3 favorite recipes that are packed with flavor, and most importantly, protein.

Protein shakes are a quick and convenient way to get your nutrients and hit your macros when you are on the go. Some ways to integrate protein shakes into your diet can be as a meal replacement, snack, or for post workout recovery. Protein shakes don’t have to be plain, boring, or gross. It’s best to find recipes that use the foods you love; for me, that’s peanut butter, coffee, pumpkin, and chai! So the recipes I want to share with you are: Peanut Butter Cold Brew, Pumpkin Spice, and Vanilla Chai.














Peanut Butter Cold Brew

Prep Time: 5 mins

Ingredients

● 2 scoops of your favorite vanilla protein

● 1 banana

● 2 tablespoons of your favorite creamy peanut butter

● ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

● ½ cup of cold brew concentrate

● Ice, as needed


1) Place all the ingredients into the blender. Blend!

Pumpkin Spice

Prep time: 5 mins

Ingredients

● 1 banana

● 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder

● ½ cup of canned pumpkin

● 2 dates

● 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk

● ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract

● 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice

● Ice, as needed


1) Place all the ingredients into the blender. Blend!

Vanilla Chai

Prep time: 5 mins

Ingredients

● ½ cup of chai tea (brewed and chilled)

● 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder

● ¼ cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

● 1 banana

● ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

● ½ tablespoon of almond butter

● Ice, as needed


1) Place all the ingredients into the blender. Blend!

* For all recipes, you can freeze the banana, so you won’t need to use ice. I like to use Vega protein powder, but any will do.
