I’m going to share my trick on how you can get your protein shake even creamier. The trick to getting that milkshake-like thickness is to freeze the coconut milk or yogurt slightly before adding it to the blender. You don’t want to freeze it solid, just a few hours or so in the freezer will do the trick. A milkshake requires ice cream to make it super-thick and creamy, so it makes sense to do the same with a protein shake, using frozen coconut milk or coconut yogurt instead.

You can add extra sweetener to this protein shake recipe if desired; however, I found it was sweet enough from the chocolate collagen protein powder and the coconut milk.

Simple, yet totally tasty: This thick and rich protein shake recipe blends up in 2 minutes and delivers a whopping 49 grams of protein. (Paleo)
