Cherry Almond Protein Shake Recipe

This wonderful cherry almond protein shake recipe can be made with sweet or tart cherries, though I prefer the tart ones! With a bit of banana, almond butter, and a handful of spinach this vegan recipe is a must have for a quick breakfast or snack on the go!

Prep: 5 Min. Cook: 5 Min. Total: 10 Min. Servings: 1

Cherry Almond Protein Shake Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 ripe banana (frozen is best)
  • 1 cup frozen cherries (sweet or tart work great)
  • 2 cups organic spinach
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup almond milk

Optional add-ins

  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa or cacao powder

Cherry Almond Protein Shake Recipe Instructions

Put everything into a high-powered blender and mix until ingredients are smooth and creamy. Add milk as needed. This recipe can also be easily doubled to serve two.


Feel free to make this recipe your own by adding in any of the following:

    • Flaxseed meal–be sure not to add too much! A tablespoon is usually plenty.
    • Chia or hemp seeds–1 tablespoon gives a boost of healthy fats, fiber, and omega-3s.
    • Greek yogurt–add just a scoop. You may want to consider reducing the amount of milk by a quarter cup when adding yogurt. Also be sure the yogurt you’re adding doesn’t contain a ton of additional sugars.
    • Protein powder or collagen peptides–Vanilla or chocolate-flavored protein powder go great with this recipe.
    • Cocoa or cacao powder–everything is better with chocolate; add 1 tablespoon of cocoa or cacao powder to help satisfy chocolate cravings.
