    Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Protein Shake

    Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Protein Shake – a great source of vegan protein! This rich shake combines strawberries, bananas, and chocolate for a delicious, vegan, protein-packed snack.

    Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Protein Shake

    I know it isn’t the healthiest to rely on protein shakes, but as someone who works out almost every day, it’s definitely helpful to get that extra boost of protein. And it’s delicious. The way I see it, as long as you don’t get all of your protein from protein powder, there’s no harm. You just need to make sure you’re eating a healthy, balanced diet for the rest of your meals.

    Unlike a lot of pre-made shakes or protein drinks, this chocolate protein shake is actually healthy for you. Full of good fat from the peanut butter, fiber from the flax, and no added sugar, this shake makes the perfect protein-packed snack.

    How to make this chocolate protein shake:

    My number one tip to make this recipe not only easy, but time-saving? Target sells a frozen mix of strawberries and bananas. I buy at least one bag every week so whenever the craving strikes, I can blend this up super easy. If you don’t have this pre-mixed bag of fruit, just measure out 1 cup of frozen strawberries and 1 cup of frozen bananas. If you don’t have frozen fruit, you can still make this shake! Just decrease the amount of liquid and add some ice. Blend until totally smooth, then top with granola (or vegan whipped cream if you’re feeling fancy!).

    Honestly, the most difficult part of this recipe is finding a protein powder that you like. It took me a minute until I found Vega (chocolate and greens, please), but it’s by far my favorite plant-based protein powder (so much so that I even listed it as one of my 2018 favorites).

    Cereal Milk Lattes (Vegan)

    Cereal Milk Lattes – delicious coffee lattes made with espresso and a homemade (vegan) version of Christina Tosi’s famous cereal milk!

    Cereal Milk Lattes (Vegan)

    We are big fans of Christina Tosi ’round these parts.

    Have I made many, many of her recipes? Yes indeed. Do I freak out and jump around my house every time she likes one of my photos on Instagram? Obviously. Do I have a tattoo of a Milk Bar cake? Well, technically not yet, but it’s next up on my “To Get Tattooed” list. It’s a lot like my “To Bake” list, but very permanent and makes my mom angry.

    Cereal Milk Lattes (Vegan)

    However, the one thing I haven’t made is arguably the most important: cereal milk. And now that I’ve made it, I don’t know how I’ve lived this long without it. But of course I can never just leave well enough alone, so I made cereal milk lattes. You’re welcome.

    How to make these lattes:

    These lattes couldn’t be any easier to make. First, make the cereal milk (I made it the night before so making my coffee in the morning was even quicker and easier). Then make your coffee or espresso shots, either one will work. Add ice to a tall glass, pour in your coffee, top with cereal milk, and enjoy!

    Ingredients

    Cereal Milk

    • 2 3/4 cups cornflakes cereal
    • 3 3/4 cups nondairy milk, cold
    • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
    • 1/4 tsp. salt

    Lattes

    • 4 shots espresso, divided
    • whipped cream for garnish (optional)

    Instructions

    • Preheat the oven to 300ºF.
    • Spread the cornflakes on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes until lightly toasted.
    • Once the cornflakes are cool, transfer them to a big bowl and pour the milk over top. Let steep 20-30 minutes.
    • Strain the mixture and press gently on the cornflakes to wring out all the milk, being careful not to push too hard (this will push the cornflake mush into the milk, and that’s not what you want!).
    • Add the brown sugar and salt and mix until thoroughly combined.
    • To make the lattes: fill a large glass with ice. Pour 2 shots of cooled espresso over top, then top with the cereal milk. Garnish with whipped cream if you like!
