What ingredients are in a Snickerdoodle Protein Smoothie?

This healthy protein smoothie requires dates, plant-based milk, frozen cauliflower, your favorite vanilla protein powder, peanut butter, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.

You can add in some mix-ins of your choosing to add to the smoothie, like a banana!

Bananas – They help to create a thicker consistency that’s similar to soft-serve ice cream. Bananas are rich in potassium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C.

Hemp seeds. Although optional, are a great addition to top this smoothie. They are high in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, and more.

How to make a Snickerdoodle Protein Smoothie

We all know that smoothies are really simple to make, but the secret to this recipe is soak the dates in warm to hot water for 5 minutes before blending.

  1. Add ingredients to a high-speed blender. 
  2. Blend ingredients until smooth and creamy, adding more liquid if needed (depending on your blender’s speed and power).
  3. Pour into your favorite glass.

Why I choose Ancient Nutrition protein powder

I am pretty particular when it comes to protein powders. In the past, certain protein powders have upset my stomach, have stayed chalky, and altered the taste of my drinks.

I choose Ancient Nutrition because I can trust the sources of their ingredients. I also appreciate that the powders have five sources of collagen to make this a powerhouse of healthy ingredients.
