Recipe Friday: Choco-Cherry Shake

In trying to think of something different for breakfast, I came up with this. My normal breakfast is a smoothie and a biscuit with peanut butter and honey. Like, every. single. morning. I love the nutrition I get from my breakfast, and the way it fills me up just right. But I suddenly got bored.

I had some raw milk that I wanted to use up before it went bad; some yogurt sounded like a good idea; I should add some protein powder; I should have some fruit; and, as an afterthought, I threw in some of my super-greens powder (that taste didn’t come through).

I didn’t want to wash my blender bowl, either. So, I used my immersion blender. It worked well except for the parsley flakes I added to the super-greens powder – I had to chew on those just a bit.

I enjoyed the taste of this; and it could be for any time.

I don’t list amounts for any of the ingredients because I rarely measure, and everything depends on how many people will be consuming it. I have a scoop that came with my bone broth protein powder, and I added one scoop of that. The bone broth protein powder that I use, it should be mentioned, is sweetened, but it’s with monkfruit, which is a healthy, no-calorie sweetener (like stevia). So, if your protein powder is not sweetened, you may need to add something to make it palatable (it’s hard for me to eat plain yogurt 😝). Suggestions: raw honey, real maple syrup, date syrup.

If you drink this right away, the frozen fruit makes it thick and icy, like a milkshake. But I couldn’t finish the whole thing, and stored it in the ‘fridge until later; and it was still very good.

I used dark sweet cherries and chocolate protein powder, but I think other combinations would also be delicious, like vanilla bone broth powder with frozen peaches or berries.

Ingredients:

  • Raw milk
  • Organic, plain, whole-milk yogurt
  • Chocolate protein powder
  • Super greens powder
  • Frozen dark sweet cherries

Directions:

Add all ingredients to a deep cup or blender. Use an immersion blender or high-speed blender, and blend on high until all is dissolved and mixed completely. Enjoy.
