Keto Protein Smoothie Meal Replacement Shake

Keto / GF / DF / Vegan

Simple and yummy post workout or filling snack or meal replacement!

Ingredients:

1 ½ Cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1 scoop of plant based protein powder (I use Garden of Life Sport plant based Chocolate or Vanilla)

(NOTE: If DF/V is not an issue for you, feel free to use a good quality grass fed whey protein powder instead and this will usually make ypur net carb amount less as long as you are using a good protein powder that doesn’t add a bunch of sugar.)

1 Tbsp. PB2 Peanut Butter Powder

½ Cup Mixed frozen berries (I use raspberries & blackberries)

4-5 Ice cubes for thickening

Instructions:  Put everything in the order I have listed above into a blender (I use a Nutribullet blender).  I shake the ingredients up a few times before attaching to the blender base.  Blend and enjoy.  This will have you feeling full!  This can work great for a meal replacement option for anyone trying to cut.

NOTE: For anyone not concerned with a lower carb option, feel free to add a few more berries as desired or other frozen fruit you may like.  Just remember the more frozen fruit you add the less ice cubes you will need to thicken up your shake.  If your shake is ever too thick you can always add a little more almond milk and blend.  And if the shake is too runny you can add ice to thicken.

Enjoy!
