A creamy, rich breakfast protein shake filled with banana and chocolate with a hint of oatmeal. A great breakfast replacement that will keep you full until lunch.
Are you a fan of granola? This easy, filling protein shake tastes like a granola bar with chocolate. It’s sooo good. This is my second youngest daughter‘s favorite breakfast smoothie.
This breakfast protein shake is great for breakfast or a quick snack.
It tastes DELICIOUS! The hardest thing for me and protein shakes is… does it taste good? If I don’t enjoy drinking a protein shake, why would I make another? This one tastes great… even the kids like this.
WHAT KIND OF PROTEIN POWDER DO YOU USE?
Not all protein powder is made equally. Do some research. As some friends.
At the time I developed this recipe, I was going lower-carb. I was using Atkin brand vanilla protein powder.
At the time of writing this post, I use Lady Boss Vanilla Cake protein powder. I chose this for specific things I was looking for.
CAN I USE CHOCOLATE FLAVORED PROTEIN POWDER?
Yes! If you have a favorite chocolate-flavored protein powder, feel free to use that in place of the vanilla protein powder and cocoa powder.
If you don’t have chocolate-flavored protein powder, follow the recipe and include your choice of protein powder and cocoa powder to create a rich chocolate-y flavor.
MAKE THIS SHAKE DAIRY FREE:
If you are looking to go dairy free, you can make this protein shake with almond, coconut or soy milk. Make sure you check with the ingredients on your protein powder as a lot of powders out there contain milk.
If you’d like to limit the calorie count you can even make this breakfast protein shake with water.
Using milk (coconut, almond, soy or regular milk) will provide a more rich, creamy flavor and texture.
HERE’S THE FULL PRINTABLE RECIPE. ENJOY!
- 1 cup unsweetened milk (coconut, almond, soy, regular) or water
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder

If using chocolate-flavored protein powder, you can omit the cocoa powder.
