Protein Shake Recipes for Kids

Peanut Brittle Drink

Like the old fashioned candy Grandpa used to have around the house at Christmas time only without all the sugar, this retro sweet dream of a drink will give your kids an eye-popping experience while you’re keeping an eye out on your kids health.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk or almond milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar free instant butterscotch pudding mix (dry)
  • 4 to 6 ice cubes, to thicken
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar free or regular chunky peanut butter

Directions:

  1. Place milk in blender followed by vanilla protein powder, dry pudding mix, and ice cubes.  Do not add peanut butter yet!
  2. Blend until well mixed.
  3. Add chunky peanut butter, and blend just until it is mixed with first ingredients.  (You goal is to mix the chunky PB without completely grounding the nuts to give that little retro sweets peanut brittle reminder.)

Note:  To make this a low carb shake, use unsweetened almond milk.  Soy milk would work as well if that is what you already use in low carb protein shake recipes.
