Treat yourself to a thick and creamy Cookies and Cream Protein Shake! It tastes like a Cookies and Cream Milkshake from the local ice cream parlor -- but this version is low calorie, low sugar, and high in protein. The healthy breakfast recipe is an easy way to satisfy your cravings in about 5 minutes!

Recipe Notes

*For purposes of calculating nutritional information, I used my favorite IdealLean Cake Batter protein powder. You can substitute with a similar vanilla or cake batter flavored protein powder, but the nutritional stats will change. As an alternative, I also like Quest Vanilla Milkshake protein powder in this recipe.
