The Best Ever Healthy Strawberry Shake

healthy strawberry shake

I went to the gym with my boys, (1 and 3 years old) I got a dou­ble work out in! Real­ly, they were very well behaved but tod­dlers are busy, every­one knows that! It was bed­time when we got home so I didn’t get the chance to eat any­thing (Jaco­by ate both apples I brought along!) By 8:30 I couldn’t decide if I want­ed a pro­tein shake or to go to bed. I opt­ed for the pro­tein shake since I knew my body need­ed it after lift­ing weights.

I was out of almond milk so I decid­ed to use straw­ber­ry juice for my liq­uid. We pick straw­ber­ries from our local berry farm and freeze 15 gal­lons each sum­mer. They are incred­i­ble, def­i­nite­ly worth the work! I thought about using peanut but­ter for my pro­tein but opt­ed for vanil­la whey pro­tein and it was a great choice!

It was better than any shake I’ve ever had!

Smooth and fluffy and deli­cious! Seri­ous­ly, I can’t describe it, just go try it for your­self! Oh yeah… here’s the recipe.
