All the flavors of red velvet (and raspberries!), in a healthy and vegan shake! | spachethespatula.com #recipe All the flavors of red velvet (and raspberries!), in a healthy and vegan shake! | spachethespatula.com #recipeI decided to make things just a bit fruity by throwing in some raspberries. Raspberries go super well with both vanilla and chocolate, and since red velvet is a combination of the two, they’re kinda perfect. Plus, they’re red, so they match!

These vegan shakes get their creaminess from coconut milk yogurt and almond milk, and their chocolaty-ness from cocoa powder and vegan chocolate protein powder.

I used Sunwarrior’s Warrior Blend chocolate protein powder in these shakes. I love that it’s a raw vegan, gluten-free protein, and it actually tastes a lot better than many of the whey-based proteins I’ve tried (and it’s not chalky—yay!). You could also use a vanilla protein powder in this, and then just up the cocoa powder a little bit.

Mikey and I got them from a restaurant in downtown Seattle. We were served out desserts in them, then we got to take them home! I’m kinda, sorta, extremely obsessed.

Oh, and you know I had to top these shakes with sprinkles. I mean, they’re adorable little hearts, and they look so pretty on top of these red shakes!

    Can we just talk abut the fact that you pretty much combined all the BEST THINGS in these gorgeous shakes?! I mean, they’re absolutely stunning! I love the color and the fact that there’s a ton of good stuff in ’em!

    Smoothies! Occasionally I’ll bake treats with them, but working around the texture can be tough.

      I agree, but I do thing protein powder makes some awesome pancakes!

    Oooooh! So fun! I love mixing protein powder with yogurt, makes it so thick and yum. I have yet to find a vegan protein powder that doesn’t taste like dirt though, but I’ve heard great things about Sunwarrior!!

    • Rachael replied: — February 11th, 2015 @ 11:44 am

      I love doing that too! Especially if it’s chocolate protein powder (then I usually also mix in that powdered peanut butter stuff for an awesome combo that tastes JUST like dessert!

    First off who doesn’t love those mason jars and it’s perfect for valentine’s day coming up and not only the color of the shake  but the raspberries and sprinkles add so much cuteness to the shake…looks so good and I can’t wait to try it out, but I love putting protein powders in my other foods like my pancakes or muffins, kinda makes them more filling and a little more tasteful in a way.

    First off who doesn’t love those mason jars like they just help add to the valentine’s day theme. The color and raspberries as well as the sprinkles just top it off but the best part is that is vegan protein powder which I love because I’m vegan. But I love adding protein powders to other foods such as pancakes muffins and yogurt it just gives it more of a kick in my opinion. But I can’t wait to try making this shake for my boyfriend and I.

    I actually like to mix it with greek yogurt to make a protein mousse or with a splash of cashew or almond milk to make a “frosting” to spread on rice cakes or toast.

    I really want to try making protein powder pancakes. Or waffles!

    • Rachael replied: — February 13th, 2015 @ 1:04 pm

      I’ve made protein pancakes, but never waffles! That sounds like a brilliant idea!

  9. Sam L — February 13, 2015 at 2:09 pm

    I love making protein fluff for dessert! It’s very filling and satisfies any cravings I have. Casein powder, milk, and frozen berries- quick and easy!
