The Best Healthy Banana Cream Pie Protein Shake!

·

I am a sucker for a good banana cream pie. Oh, the creamy deliciousness. Much like many of my readers, I, too, am trying to up my daily protein and reduce the amount of sugar I intake. So I did what I normally do and am strangely good at taking desserts we all crave and turning them into healthy protein shakes!

With this recipe, I captured the banana cream pie flavor of this classic dessert and transformed it into a tasty high protein shake you could enjoy more regularly. You’re welcome, friends.

This simple and easy recipe can be a new quick “go-to” when you’re craving the real thing.

Here are some easy swaps you can make to help cater to your dietary needs:

  • To make the recipe Paleo – opt for a grain-free graham cracker like Simple Mils Sweet Thins.
  • You could opt for coconut or regular milk if you are allergic to nuts.
  • If you don’t have sugar-free banana cream pudding – you could opt out for artificial banana flavor extract and vanilla extract.
  • You could top with whipped cream and some graham cracker crumbs for a fun flourish.
  • If you wanted to increase the protein, you could add 1/4-1/2 cup greek yogurt or cottage cheese – this will obviously add more protein and increase the creaminess.

I love having a protein shake before a workout. Protein Shakes are a great way to fuel your body before or after a workout. For more information on proper ways to fuel your body when working out, check out my post, What To Eat Before and After a Workout A Powerful Guide For Optimal Results!

Picking the right protein powder when creating your protein shake is so important. Unfortunately, many supposedly healthy protein powder brands are filled with weird chemicals and many artificial ingredients that harm our bodies. Because it is marketed as a healthy product does not mean it is, so use caution, friends. I have listed my favorite options below- all taste fantastic and are organic, clean, and good for you!

MY FAVORITE CHOICES FOR HIGH-QUALITY PROTEIN POWDER:

Each Protein Powder I recommend has the highest quality ingredients, with no sketchy crap that many brands use.

Happy blending!
