Cake Batter Protein Smoothie

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.

  1. I am a serial spoon and bowl licker when I make cakes!! This will help me during those times I need to make a cake just so that I can lick the batter! 😀
    Plus those funfetti?? How cool is that??? Thank you so much for sharing this with us at #saucy saturdays!

  2. You had me at cake! This looks awesome! I LOVE smoothies and one that tastes like cake batter definitely has my heart. I also like that it has protein in it. I can always use a little bit more protein in my diet. I am super excited to give this recipe a go. Thanks for sharing! So glad I came across your recipe on The Pink Junkie! Pinned!

    1. You could either omit it altogether or just switch it out with the regular/full fat version. If you omit it then the smoothie won’t be as thick and if you switch it out then, of course, the calorie content and nutrition information would be different. Either way should be just fine and not alter the flavor profile too much.

  3. I love this idea! It clearly shows that you can have your cake and eat it too.. without feeling guilty 🙂
