Just Like “Marshmallow Fluff” Protein Shake!

Author: Healthnuttxo

I’m on a protein powder fix, trying up new combos to enjoy every day! Here’s one of my latest shakes I had that I really liked. It was super fluffy and reminded me of Marshmallow Fluff!

Ingredients

-1 scoop (35 grams) protein powder. I used Muscle Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor,  but I’m sure any vanilla would work

– 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

-1/2 tsp xanthan gum (I eyeballed this, but did a rather large pinch)

– 5 ounces coconut milk

-4 ounces ice

– 1 packet sweetener (I used Stevia in the Raw)

Directions

add all to blender, and blend! The result? A protein packed shake that’s fluffy and delicious!

Not my best photo, but I didn’t think to put
this on my website until after I ate it (:

What’s your favorite protein shake recipe? I’d love to hear  it!

    i just did a post talking about deb’s (http://smoothiegirleatstoo.blogspot.com/) smoothies & i’m obsessed!
    i’ve been adding frozen spinach to cut down on the ice i need & increase the creaminess!

    wow- what a good idea! Does the flavor shine through at all? thats a great way to get extra veggies in!

    This looks great! I agree that Guar gum and Xanthan gum make all the difference! Also different extracts/flavorings can really change things up! I added McCormick’s butter flavoring to my peach one (still had vanilla stevia) and it was like cake batter! I’m going to copy and paste what I left on th Peacefoodlove blog recently since she asked the same question:

    I love smoothies! I have several I love. My favorite is probably 1/4 cup unsweet vanilla almond milk, 1/2 cup cottage cheese (nonfat or low), TBSP or so of low fat cream cheese, about 1 cup frozen peaches, vanilla stevia, 1/4 tsp guar and xanthan gum, and sometimes 1/4 scoop vanilla Jay Robb protein powder. This is so good. I also add dash of cinnamon to change flavor or use an almond or other extract. I also like frozen blueberries and strawberries with plain greek yogurt,stevia, little cream cheese, spinach and almond milk.
    I actually like them in Fall/Winter! But then I use same base as my peach one except I use canned pumpkin that I freeze in cubes and lots of pumpkin pie spice. With the cream cheese it’s like pumpkin cheesecake!
