Caramel Apple Protein Shake

 

The Inspiration!

(Recipe courtesy of former Bariatric Foodie co-writer Jen Stockinger.)

I’ve seen lots of newer post-ops asking about protein shake recipes on OH lately, so this morning I decided to share a new shake recipe instead of the super secret meatloaf. The meatloaf recipe will be posted this weekend, so stay tuned!

I was trying to think up some more Fall flavors of shakes instead of so much pumpkin. Of course Dunkin Donuts just came out with their Caramel Apple Latte, so I decided to try a caramel apple version of a protein shake. If you’d like to make it a Latte, just add 1/2 a packet of Starbucks Via or 1 tablespoon of Decaf Instant Espresso.

I only used applesauce for the apple flavor (and bonus, added fiber AND a serving of fruit!), but you could always add a splash of no sugar added apple juice if this isn’t “apple-ish” enough for you. My non-op apple pie addicts and resident taste-testers said this version has enough apple flavor, but you can adjust according to your palate. Here’s the rundown:

Jen’s Caramel Apple Protein Shake

Ingredients:

Directions:
Pour the milk into your blender cup or shaker bottle then add the remaining ingredients and blend (or shake) until thoroughly combined. Taste the shake and adjust seasoning, I used a tablespoon of cinnamon in mine but some readers don’t like cinnamon as much as I do. I drink mine cold and straight up, but if you prefer more of a milkshake texture, add some ice and follow Nik’s Triple X method.

Happy Fall, Y’all!

  1. Uggggh! This recipe definitely needs to be edited to read 1 TEASPOON of cinnamon. I made it with the posted 1 TABLEspoon and had to throw it out. That is way too much. I will try it again later with a less cinnamon.

  2. Sorry about that, I used a tablespoon in mine all 3 times I made it before I posted the recipe, but then I really like cinnamon. I'll post a note in the recipe. Thanks ~~ Jen
