My dad used to make these amazing vanilla peanut butter malts for me as a kid (and well into college, who am I kidding).
Blue Bunny ice cream, whole milk, peanut butter (no, not the natural kind y'all), and malt.
Most of you probably don't even know what malt it.....but that's besides the point.
Even after years of eating a whole-food diet, I still crave the malts from my childhood.
Being 95% dairy free these days to reduce the chronic nasal drip + gunk I had going on in my sinuses for 20+ years, i've resorted to alternative foods (that taste darn good, I might add).
Yes, I can have my "malt" and feel good about it inside and out.
It's as creamy and calorie-dense and delicious as those good ole' shake days and packed with 30+ grams of protein as well as healthy fats and carbs and very low in sugar. A perfect post-workout or hike meal to give your body the calories and fuel it needs to restock your muscles with energy.
1/3 cup homemade cashew milk (or more if you like it on the thin side)
1/2 frozen banana
1/8 cup whole rolled oats
2 T hemp seeds
1 scoop Terra’s grass-fed vanilla whey protein (or plant-based protein of choice)
2 T natural peanut butter (without sugar)
1 scoop collagen peptides
4-5 large ice cubes
Blend and enjoy your dream shake.
