Packed full of protein and delicious flavour, this quick and easy post-workout protein shake is made with Onken 0% Fat Strawberry yogurt. In collaboration with Onken.
Protein shakes are a regular part of my diet. My morning routine consists of getting up (sometimes way too early!) and two cups of milky coffee while catching up on social media.
Then, I get the kids ready and off to school with their packed lunches and I do my morning workout – Tony Horton’s P90X3. It’s a workout program that really works well for me, keeping me feeling fit and strong as well as keeping the pounds from piling on from being a food blogger (so much good food combined with so much sitting and typing/editing/social media – the struggle is real!).
I always follow my morning workout with a protein shake. It helps maintain lean muscle mass, and it fills me up until lunch time.
INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED FOR THIS STRAWBERRY POST-WORKOUT PROTEIN SHAKE
- Milk – use full fat if you want the extra calories, or skimmed if you’re wanting a lighter shake
- Onken 0% Fat Strawberry yogurt (for probiotics, protein and flavour)
- A scoop of vanilla ice cream (for extra calories) or a handful of ice cubes
- Unflavoured protein powder (these days I’m using Pulsin soya protein)
- Flax seeds – for extra fibre
- Fresh strawberries – for vitamins (or half a banana)

My protein shakes are made with ice cubes instead of ice cream, and I usually add half a banana for extra creaminess and potassium. My husband’s, on the other hand, involves a generous scoop, or two, of vanilla ice cream for the extra calories.
We’re yogurt fans in our house; there’s always a tub (or several) in the fridge. Plain yogurt gets used in all sorts of sweet and savoury dishes, while flavoured yogurts, like this 0% Fat Strawberry from Onken, make for a lovely addition to a breakfast smoothie or post-workout protein shake.
This recipe is made in collaboration with Onken yogurt. They challenged me to come up with three different recipes that could be made from a single pot fo their 0% Fat Strawberry yogurt.
In addition to this rather scrummy strawberry post-workout protein shake recipe, I’ve made a delicious French-style yogurt cake as well as some oatmeal pancakes with a strawberry yogurt drizzle. Visit the Onken website and check out their recipes section for these recipes and many more!
