Cake Shake

This is my go to protein drink, either in the morning, before I hit the gym, or an after gym pick-me-up

Why is it a cake shake you say?

Well, it tastes like cake batter! And I don’t think there’s anything better than that…

For this you will need:

– 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
– 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder (scoops come with the powder)
– 1 teaspoon of yellow cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
– 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
– 1/2 teaspoon Splenda brown sugar (find me in the baking aisle!)

I don’t recommend substituting any of these ingredients.. unless of course you want to use real brown sugar, that’s fine. The almond milk really adds to the cake batter flavor, as does the cake mix and brown sugar.

ALSO, and this is SUPER important! You must follow these easy instructions exactly. If you add everything at once your protein shake with get clumpy and the powder won’t mix. You will have a big glob at the bottom of your cup. Plus, the vanilla mixes with the powder and won’t mix in the milk. YUCK!


Start with 1 cup of the almond milk (put it in a container you can cover and shake up, I used my “bobble” but any sippy cup or water bottle will do)

Add 1 scoop of the vanilla powder

One scoop!

Now you shake that baby up

Shake it up good until the powder dissolves

Then add 1 teaspoon of yellow cake mix. I keep my cake mix in tupperware, but you can use any kitchen storage container.

Mmmmm yellow cake mix

Mix it up again until dissolved!

Then add 1/2 tsp of vanilla, SHAKE again

Final step is 1/2 tsp of Splenda Brown Sugar

I use this a lot!

This really gives it that yummy, cookie/cake/ fresh out of the oven taste to your protein shake! SHAKE it for the final time

Now all that’s left to do is DRINK and enjoy 🙂

A good pre or post-workout snack!

Happy eating… or sipping?

XOXO With a Cherry On Top,
