This protein-packed banana cream pie milkshake is loaded with healthy and good-for-you ingredients, yet it tastes like a decadent creamy dessert!

Unlike the classic dessert though, this milkshake is good for you! Well, the graham cracker part might not be quite as healthy, but it’s the key ingredient in making this treat have that old-fashioned pie taste, so don’t skip it unless you have to. I also recommend topping the smoothie with whipped coconut cream and even more graham cracker crumbles, because why not? If you’re going to have a "dessert", you might as well do it the right way!

Best of all... This healthy banana cream pie protein milkshake is the perfect treat to indulge in when your mouth is sore from your latest orthodontic adjustment.

** If you don't want to use the protein powder, no problem... 6 oz. of Greek yogurt already has plenty of protein... around 17 grams.**

6 oz. Vanilla Greek Yogurt
1 Scoop of Protein Powder
1 Graham Cracker or 5 Vanilla Wafer Cookies
