How to Make Homemade Protein Shakes for Kids

Leave a Comment
Whipping up a quick, healthful, and tasty protein shake that tastes like dessert is a great way of 
satisfying your kid’s hunger and (sometimes picky) palate, while fueling them with protein.

Some easy-to-hide foods that are full of protein include nut butters, protein powders, scrambled eggs (it may sound strange, but you can’t taste them in a smoothie), almond milk, and yogurt. A great fruit-flavored protein shake can include any combination of fresh or frozen fruit, nut milk, protein powder, and/or yogurt. As an alternative, a shake that tastes like dessert, such as a chocolate shake, is a brilliant way of tricking children into thinking they’re consuming something decadent, when really, they’re drinking something healthy. We've included a delicious recipe here, but feel free to mix and match a variety of flavors.
Things You'll Need

    1 large ripe banana, peeled and frozen
    2 tablespoons unsweetened almond butter
    1–2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (to taste)
    1 scant scoop vanilla protein powder (about 1 ½ tablespoons)

    ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 cup unsweetened almond milk
    4 large ice cubes

Step 1: Assemble Your Smoothie Ingredients

Choose your flavor scheme and add it to a high-powered blender. This high-in-protein recipe option calls for three sources of protein: protein powder, almond milk, and almond butter. If choosing a fruit smoothie, try adding blueberries or strawberries, banana, almond milk, and vanilla protein powder (and/or cashew butter or almond butter).

Turn the blender on high or use the smoothie setting, if available. Blend until completely smooth, pour into a glass, and enjoy!
