Okay all, this is going to be my last birthday cake inspired recipe for the week! This birthday bonanza was all in honor of my little girl's birthday, which officially kicks off birthday season for my family. Almost ALL of our close family has birthday's in Spring and early Summer months. Now that the excitement is starting to wane from my mini me turning 7, I can get back to some bit of normalcy. Let's face it, none of our 'adult' birthdays are nearly as important as the little one's.
With my own birthday on the horizon and the inevitability of being another year older I thought what better time than now to introduce this Birthday Cake inspired protein shake! It's loaded up with plenty of birthday cake flavor, plus a boost of protein and collagen to keep you strong and satisfied.
I made this protein shake more wholesome by adding in Dr. Axe’s Bone Broth Collagen in the vanilla flavor. Dr. Axe’s Bone Broth Collagen is an easy to use mix that provides 3 potent sources of collagen with benefits spanning from gut support, joint health, healthy skin support, immunity support and support for cognitive function. It's super nourishing and full of protein and other vital nutrients.
I used the vanilla flavor to give me that 'cake batter' flavor that I was wanting. And I've got to say, it gave me that perfectly smooth and creamy texture for this shake that I was looking for. I also opted to use naturally colored sprinkles that aren't made using artificial dyes. Plus, there's even more protein loaded into this shake with the use of greek yogurt and milk. But, you could use any other sort of milk too, if you want.
This cute shake turned out just as sweet, filling and adorable as could be. Plus, it's super easy to toss together and tastes amazing while remaining guilt-free.
Right now you can get 20% off any flavor of Bone Broth Collagen ordered from Dr. Axe. Just use the code SKINNYFORK20 at checkout. I'm definitely planning on trying out the chocolate flavor next!
I'm a bit sad to see the birthday bliss gone for now, but who knows what I might have up my sleeve next?! Until then, enjoy this past week of my cake batter haul. Yum!
