Red, White, and Vanilla-Berry Protein Milkshake

4th of July festive this morning! Loving the milkshake consistency of this vanilla shake and all the delicious toppings. I started out with a straw then grabbed my spoon! Red, White, and Vanilla-Berry Protein Milkshake | GF, DF, PF, V | Lexiscleankitchen.com

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla grass-fed whey protein powder
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum 
  • 5-10 ice cubes (I used 5 here and loved the consistency)
  • 1 tsp raw organic honey
  • 1/2 cup fresh berries
  • Optional: Add additional sweetener to taste
  • Optional: Garnish with fresh berries and festive sprinkles

Note: Xanthan gum is used as a thickening agent. It is made from a tiny microorganism called Xanthomonas campestris and is a natural carbohydrate. If you are unsure whether it will be good for you, you can substitute it for other thickening agents such as a frozen banana or other frozen fruits. If you eat dairy, adding cottage cheese or greek yogurt will also thicken up your shakes!

Directions:

  1. Line the bottom of your glass or jar with blueberries
  2. In a high-speed blender, combine almond milk, protein powder, coconut oil, xanthan gum, honey, and ice and blend until smooth
  3. Taste and adjust thickness and sweetness to your liking
  4. Pour over berries, garnish, and enjoy with a straw or a spoon
