This dessert-like Birthday Cake Protein Shake is secretly good for you! It happens to be dairy-free and paleo too!
Coldstone Creamery introduced me to CAKE BATTER ICE CREAM, and my life was forever changed! Pre-cake batter ice cream I’d opt for mint chocolate chip or chocolate chocolate chip, but the cake batter flavor has officially made me leave the world of chocolate ice cream behind, and never look back!
Knowing it wouldn’t be a great idea to indulge in cake batter ice cream on a daily basis, I have tried to create the flavor in a variety of healthy ways. I am so happy to say that this thick Birthday Cake Protein Shake is a pretty excellent healthy reproduction of the flavor and festiveness of the original! With two scoops of vanilla whey protein (from grass-fed cattle preferably) this shake has over 20 grams of protein, leaving you full, energized, and satisfied! After you suck this shake down, you may be leaving your chocolate shakes behind as well 🙂
