Chocolate Strawberry Protein Shake Recipe

Nothing hits the spot quite like a milkshake, right?

The problem is, most milkshakes are stuffed with ice cream, sugars, and empty calories. So it's hard to enjoy a delicious milkshake and not have to worry about its impact on your health.

This chocolate strawberry protein shake is made from protein powder so you can get the nutrients your body needs with the same delicious chocolate and strawberry flavor you crave. It also uses real strawberries and low calorie Strawberry Ice Cream so you get the sweet and fruity flavor while minimizing calorie intake!

This chocolate strawberry protein smoothie is something sweet you can have from time to time without having to stress about getting in the way of your fitness goals.

Want to Make this Chocolate Strawberry Protein Shake Your Own?

Here are a few customization ideas for your chocolate strawberry protein smoothie:

  • Blending with ice cubes can be a good idea, but if you want to make it even creamier, freeze almond milk into ice cubes and blend those instead!
  • Switch out the strawberry ice cream for a different fruit ice cream of your choice — blackberry, raspberry, etc.
  • Add in banana chunks for a strawberry-banana combo
  • Chia or flax seeds can also add a super fun texture to your milkshake
