My entire family loves when I make this protein shake. It is a great way to get in some protein and fruit all in a delicious drink to start the day. This easy fruit smoothie recipe can be made in a variety of ways.

If you love our Fruit Smoothie Recipe, add in some protein to create a filling shake. You may also love this Pineapple Spinach Green Smoothie recipe, Dragon Fruit Smoothie, Protein Fruit Smoothie or Mango Protein Smoothie for a delicious variation.

Why We Love This Recipe

This protein shake can be made for breakfast, snack or a dessert and is a quick and easy vegetarian recipe. I love strawberry and cheesecake so combining the two in a protein shake makes perfect sense.

You will love the flavor, the taste and how the texture is creamy. This is the perfect dairy free recipe to take on the go and is packed with protein.


Strawberry Protein Shake Ingredients - almond milk, protein powder, strawberries, Jell-O Cheesecake Mix, Ice

You only need 5 ingredients for this healthy, delicious and easy proteins shake recipe.  Here is what you’ll need to make this today.

  • Light Almond Milk (I like Hiland or Silk Milk)

Variations Ideas

  • Milk – Feel free to use different types of milk depending on your diet restrictions. You can use soy milk, coconut milk, or regular milk.
  • Fresh Berries – We love to use different types of fruit when making a protein shake. We have used blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, bananas, pineapple and mango.
  • Veggies – Feel free to add in veggies such as spinach or kale for a more healthier option.
  • Sweetener – If you need to make it sweeter, add in honey, stevia, or maple syrup. Vanilla extract can be added for added flavor.
  • More Protein – For even more protein add in cottage cheese to this strawberry protein shake recipe. You can even add in Greek Yogurt or cream cheese.
  • Toppings – Add whipped cream, cool whip, crushed graham crackers or peanut butter.

Recipe Tips

  • Combining Ingredients – Feel free to layer the ingredients in the blender at one time.
  • Adding Ice – Ice creates a thicker texture when making a smoothie. It will depend how thick your ice is on how well it blends. You may need to add more ice or more liquid depending on the consistency of the smoothie.
  • Blender – Having a good blender is a must to make sure the ingredients are blended evenly. We recommend using a Vitamix Blender for best results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store Leftovers

I usually eat it right away while it’s still cold but they usually don’t last long because it’s packed with flavor. Store in the freezer and then thaw to enjoy.

Can I Make Ahead of Time?

We recommend preparing protein shake when ready to serve. You can prepare protein packets by placing the ingredients except the liquid and placing in a ziplock freeze bag. Then when ready to serve, place in the blender with liquid and blend. You may not need a lot of ice if you freeze smoothie packet.

  1. Carrie says:

    Lisa – I usually use the plain greek yogurt as it has less added sugar. I start with 1/2 cup of it and then you can always add in more if needed.

  2. Lisa says:

    If using Greek yogurt how much would you use? And would it be plain or a flavored like vanilla or possibly strawberry

  3. Nicole says:

    This looks awesome! Is the cheesecake powder a pudding mix? Or the dessert that you make in a pie plate?
