Recipe: Very Vanilla Strawberry Shake

by JJ Virgin on September 4, 2016

This scrumptious protein shake is like a no-guilt version of a strawberry shortcake. The combination of warm, rich vanilla and naturally sweet, juicy strawberries will have your tastebuds cheering, while the protein, fiber, and healthy fats keep the rest of your body happy, too.

If you aren’t already a protein shake fan, you will be! All-In-One Shakes, available in Paleo-Inspired or Plant-Based, are the number one needle mover when it comes to quick weight loss, and I recommend them in both The Virgin Diet and the Sugar Impact Diet. (Find out why here.) They’re an easy way to get great nutrition, and they keep you from skipping meals or fueling up with sugar and empty carbs that send you into a cycle of mood swings and energy crashes.
