Base Ingredients

Optional Add-ins

  • Fresh or frozen berries/sliced fruit
  • Spinach or kale
  • Plain (unflavored) Greek yogurt or cottage cheese
  • Any nut butter
  • Collagen peptides
  • Raw cacao powder or matcha green tea powder
  • Chia seeds, ground flaxseed or hemp hearts
  • Vanilla, cinnamon or nutmeg


  • Add base ingredients and any of the optional add-ins to a blender.
  • Blend until smooth and serve immediately.


  1. For easy blending, add the milk first near the blades when adding the ingredients to your blender.
  2. Vanilla protein powder can be substituted for the plain protein powder. If you’re going to do that though, I recommend omitting the natural sweetener from the recipe and not adding any vanilla extract.
  3. Nutritional facts below are calculated using only the base ingredients (none of the optional add-ins are included).
