We’ve really been into the dessert-themed protein shakes lately. Just a week ago, we posted our recipe for a Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake using OLLY’s new protein powder. It was super tasty, guilt-free, and had us craving for more dessert-inspired smoothies.
Pie is basically one of the best foods ever, so why not find an excuse for eating pie for breakfast, right or after the gym?!? The good news? This key lime pie protein shake has a tiny sliver of calories compared to a slice of pie, yet it is packed with all the refreshing and creamy key lime flavor.
Key Lime Pie Protein Shake Recipe
Recipe makes 1 protein shake
- 1 scoop OLLY vanilla protein powder
- 1 frozen banana (adds great texture, but doesn’t overpower the flavor)
- ½ cup vanilla almond milk
- ¾ cup lime juice, not from concentrate (use ½ cup if you would like it less tart)
- Zest of one lime
- 1-2 handfuls of ice
- Whipped cream
- ½ graham cracker, crushed
