Raspberry Whey Protein Shake


Happy Tuesday! There are days when I feel like drinking a healthy shake instead of having a full blown lunch. So for days like this, I prefer to create a shake with what I have in my pantry and fridge. I initially bought whey protein in hopes of having a daily meal substitute for lunch, but as it turns out, I suck at being consistent with my calorie intake. Oh, well, gotta pick myself up and keep trying. On a good note, I've started working out again...I'm on Day 2 but any start is a good start!

With no further delay here's my recipe for a delicious shake:

Raspberry Whey Protein Shake

1 heaping scoop of Whey Protein Powder
8 oz or more of Almond Milk (40 calorie carton)
1 cup of Fresh Raspberries or Frozen raspberries
1 to 2 packets of Stevia
If using fresh raspberries, add two to three ice cubes for chilled shake
  • In a blender crush ice, then add the rest of the ingredients. Blend until desired consistency. Taste and adjust ingredients according to your preference. Enjoy!

  1. What a mouth watering protein shake. I love the idea that you combined it with Stevia. I'll try this at home too. Thanks for the share.

  2. I hate protein powder. I hate it with a passion normally reserved for racists and loaning money to family but I also hate meat and my nutritionist told me that I needed to start consuming one or the other. I have a strong dislike for chocolate and peanut butter unless it's in the form of a Reese's (which is oddly enough not laced with protein) and can't stand Strawberries so I bought this unflavored. When made with just water, it's tasteless. Completely, utterly, blessedly tasteless. Read More
