This recipe is a mashup of my favorite summer treat and my favorite way to get protein in on busy days! This healthy peach protein milkshake is a deceptively easy snack that’s great for a midday treat!
It’s no secret that I’m madly in love with Bob’s Red Mill. I’ve worked with them several times over the last year or so collabing on these gluten free sugar cookie bars, this crispy, sweet brownie bark, and most recently these amazing peanut brittle cookies. But when I found out they had a new line of protein powders I couldn’t not try them!
Especially because protein powder is hands down one of the best ways to get in some extra protein during the day without having to down a chicken breast for your 2pm snack. Not that I’m knocking the devouring of last night’s chicken leftovers in any way. But sometimes you want that sweet snack without reaching for a handful of M&Ms
And ever since the banana ice cream trend started last summer I’ve REALLY wanted to try my hand at frozen fruit ice cream. But I hate bananas. *gasp* Seriously, I dunno what it is about the flavor and the texture but I just cannot with bananas. Which has kept me from enjoying this fruity, guilt-free treat for ages.
Why it never occurred to me to use a different kind of fruit until now I’m not quite sure but we won’t talk about that.
I didn’t really know what frozen fruit to try so I went on a raid of the freezer and found a bag of peaches I’d bought to remake my peach bellinis. And since I never got around to remaking those I decided to use the peaches for this instead. And I’m not sad about it.
I like that Bob’s Red Mill’s protein powder is naturally sweetened with Monk fruit so it doesn’t add any extra artificial sweetness to this recipe. Because those peaches are sweet all on their own! I used some vanilla soy milk and the vanilla protein powder here because well I had the soymilk leftover from making a vegan version of this tropical mango poke cake for my roommate and her coworkers and I didn’t want it to go to waste. You can absolutely use regular milk here if you prefer, though!
Also, I won’t judge if you’re a banana fan and want to make this with bananas instead. Because protein ice cream with probiotics and pre-biotic fiber you can feel good about doesn’t sound too shabby to me!
And if you’re going to try a yummy fruity milkshake this summer make sure you snag this coupon before your next shopping trip!
