Dairy-Free 'Frosty' | Plant Based High Protein | Home with Willow

     Sometimes it can be hard to find healthy plant-based replacements for the things we used to love as kids. For me, its ice cream (you might’ve noticed I have a lot of nice cream recipes around here!) 

     One thing I used to love getting was a Wendy’s Frosty. And I’d stick those greasy salty french fries in it! Disgusting when I think about it now, but I absolutely loved it as a kid! I was pretty much a fan of any cheap soft serve style ice cream. 

     Anyway, when I recently figured out the trick to getting that same kind of consistency in a smoothie – I was gung-ho to figure out how to make my own dairy-free ‘frosty’! Want to know the secret? ICE CUBES!

high protein plant based smoothie

 

     Alright guys, this is my ABSOLUTE favorite high protein plant based smoothie recipe. This is my go-to for mornings before work where I need something quick and super filling.

     The other benefit to this high protein plant based smoothie is that once you grab a bag of each of the ingredients, all you need on hand is a banana & some plant-based milk (which are staples for me every grocery trip). My go-to is almond milk, but you could go with soy, cashew, hemp, oat, hazelnut… I could go on and on (but that’s for another post!) So while buying a bag of hemp protein might cost $20 initially, you’re looking at 45 servings, which roughly equates to .44 cents per serving of 11g of protein! (This smoothie is also my go-to when I don’t have much on hand, but I still have my staples).
