Keep your holiday cravings healthy and drink them away without the guilt! This Snickerdoodle Protein Shake recipe is packed with holiday flavor and can be made in under a minute!
For this holiday protein shake you can use either a shaker bottle or blender. Using a blender will give you more of a smoothie so keep that in mind before making it.
Add into whatever you’re using 3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla milk substitute, 1/4 cup of fat free cottage cheese, 1/4 teaspoon of butter extract, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 of a ripe banana, 1 packet of your choice sweetener, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of a nut butter, 1 scoop of a vanilla protein powder, 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal, and 1/2 cup of ice.
Not a fan of cottage cheese? Use a plain Greek yogurt or holiday flavored Greek yogurt instead!
Shake or blend all of those ingredients together until you have your snickerdoodle protein shake.
Did you know that flaxseed meal is a great cheap way to get some healthy fats, fiber, and protein in your diet?
Pour it into your favorite glass and optionally top it with some healthier holiday toppings! Light whipped cream, sugar free syrup, ground cinnamon, and so on. Let us know some of the toppings you use in the description below.
