Fresh Strawberry Shortcake Pie Protein Smoothie

So I found this recipe the other day on Pinterest (where else?) for a Strawberry Shortcake Pie. I honestly don’t know why I torture myself so when I know my treats are limited for the next seven weeks.

But the damage was done. I had already indulged in the food porn and this pie was the last straw.

“I want a freakin’ strawberry shortcake pie!” I exclaimed.

So I got up from the computer, went to the kitchen and made one…skinny style, and no fork necessary.

I know you want one, too, so I’ll be nice and share the recipe. Start up your blenders!

Strawberry Shortcake Pie Smoothie

Ingredients:

3 fresh strawberries hulled and sliced

1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder

1 cup of cold almond milk

10 drops of vanilla liquid Stevia drops

1 Tbsp of strawberry sugar-free preserves (optional, but I like a little extra berry)

1 Tbsp vanilla sugar-free pudding mix

Directions:

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. You can crumble a half sheet of graham cracker on top or just stick a straw in and have at it.

Mmmm, just like that pie (or so I imagine as I sip little graham pieces through the straw and taste the cool refreshing berry.  Just like summer, only a couple months early.
