Raspberry Red Velvet Protein Shake

Goodmorning everyone! Here is another delicious recipe to add to your breakfast rotation. It’s extremely simple and perfect for those mornings when you are in a rush! It makes such a large shake, I didn’t even know what to do with it all. just look at it overflowing out of the glass..I had more still sitting in the blender! Definitely filling with 10g of fibre & the raspberries and red velvet flavour combination is amazing.

Serves 1

  • 8-12 small ice cubes (more or less depending on how thick you like your shake!)
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries (66g)
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 scoop Cellucor Red Velvet Whey Protein (http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/cellucor/cor-performance-whey.html)
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp 0% plain greek yogurt
  • 1/16-1/8 tsp xanthan gum (again depending on the texture you like but this helps smooth out the shake and make it more fluffy!)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: sweetener to taste (I didn’t add any but if you like your shakes sweeter then go ahead!)

Directions: Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy! Enjoy!

Um, okay let me just say, don’t knock it until you try it. The richness of this dessert ahem, breakfast was outstanding. It’s better than regular chocolate pudding plus it’s much more filling, low-carb and packed with fibre and protein. Can it get any better?

Who says you can’t have chocolate for breakfast?

Serves 1-2

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 scoop Cellucor Red Velvet Cake Batter Whey (My new favourite protein! you can purchase it here: http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/cellucor/cor-performance-whey.html?&_requestid=1278536 )
  • 75g very ripe Avocado
  • 2 tbsp almond milk (or a little more depending on the consistency you prefer)
  • 1 tbsp natural Almond Butter
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup egg whites (2 large egg whites)
  • 2 tbsp 2% cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp 0% greek yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • dash of salt
  • 1/8 tsp xanthan gum (for texture purposes, it makes it less icey. If you don’t have this, it will just come out little less smooth but will taste the same!)
  • 15 small ice cubes (More for a more ice-cream-like consistency)
  • Optional: Truvia or another sweetener to taste (Personally I found it sweet enough and didn’t add any but it’s up to you!)

Directions:

Place the ice in the blender along with the egg whites and all other ingredients (I find it blends better with the dry ingredients placed on top). Blend until smooth and add additional ice or almond milk if necessary to reach desired texture.  Now place in a bowl and devour! Or feel free to go crazy with some toppings..like coconut, chocolate chips, fruit etc!
