JJ’s Birthday Cake Shake


April 17, 2017

Somebody light the candles! Created in honor of JJ’s special day, this tasty vanilla and almond protein shake with whipped coconut cream and sprinkles makes every day a celebration.

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Yields: 1 Serving


2 scoops JJ Virgin Vanilla All-In-One Protein Shake powder (your choice of protein type)*

10 oz. unsweetened vanilla coconut milk

1 tbsp coconut butter (or coconut oil, if butter not available)

1 tbsp almond butter

2 tsp Extra Fiber* or 1 Tbsp freshly ground flaxseed

1 tsp real vanilla extract

1/8 tsp almond extract

4-5 ice cubes

1/4 cup whipped coconut cream (optional, recipe below)

1 tsp all-natural rainbow sprinkles (optional, see notes for source)


1Blend the shake mix, coconut milk, coconut butter, almond butter, Extra Fiber, vanilla extract, almond extract, and ice cubes together until smooth. (If you’re using Paleo shake mix, ramp up the blender speed slowly to keep it creamy.)
