Vanilla Cream Protein Shake

Hi Everyone,

Since I didn’t have smoothie Monday, I thought I would make it Smoothie Tuesday.  However there shouldn’t be a specific day for a smoothie, especially healthy ones!  Today’s smoothie takes after one of my favorite, that I don’t order drinks, the Vanilla Cream Frappe.  I love them, but with all of the calories and sugar I just don’t order them, ever!  So why not try to re-create a tasty drink with a healthy and even tastier drink that is guilt-free and will give you energy, plus it won’t hurt the waistline!

I made this shake using Wallaby Vanilla flavored Kefir, however, if you don’t have vanilla Kefir, vanilla yogurt will work too!! To thicken up my drink I also used one tablespoon of vanilla protein powder.  The brand I used is Designer Whey, I buy it at Trader Joe’s, but I do know that vitamin stores like GNC and Vitamin World carry it.  Honestly I am not the biggest protein drink person, so I only used a little to give me a nice vanilla taste. I really try to like protein shakes, but for some reason they are not my thing, but I still drink them.

This drink is creamy, smooth and tastes just like vanilla milkshake, just not as thick.  It’s a fabulous drink that is perfect for having after a workout, for breakfast or anytime where your craving a sweet drink.  Vanilla is one of my favorite flavors, I even like it over chocolate, which sounds kind of odd even coming from me, but it’s true!
