Deliciously sweet protein shake that tastes just like cake batter.. have your cake and eat it too! Without all the guilt!
It goes without saying that whenever I make cookies or cake, or any baked good for that matter, there is spoon and bowl licking involved.
Most of the time it is before any of it even makes it out of the bowl onto the cookie sheet or into the cake pan.
Yeah, I have no self control.
But as a fitness coach and in an effort to stay healthy, I've decided to make a cake batter protein smoothie. So instead of licking the bowl clean of batter, I'll just whip up one of these babies.
Wait… who am I kidding… there will still be bowl licking involved and I will probably make one of these as well because I will feel guilty that I am eating raw cake batter and how it's not good for me and yada, yada. Than I'll make one of these and drink it down and try and feel better because I am doing something good for my body.
It's a vicious, never ending cycle. However, on the days that I am not making cake or cookies or a sweet, baked good and am craving something sweet, this is one of my go-to shakes. When I have made it in the past, I used actual cake mix to make it taste like cake batter but that negates it being a “healthy” smoothie. So I have found a way to get that same great cake batter flavor but without the actual cake mix.
Cake Batter Protein Shake
- Add all ingredients into a blender and blend on high for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until smooth.
- If smoothie is too thick or thin, add more ice or almond milk according to taste and blend until desired consistency is reached.
