Healthy Funfetti Shake

This healthy funfetti shake is rich, creamy, and absolutely indulgent. Call it breakfast or call it a snack.

Healthy Funfetti Shake

I like to trick myself into eating healthy. Obviously I know what I’m eating before it hits my mouth, but I prefer to trick my brain into thinking it’s getting a rich, indulgent treat, when really I’m faking it out with a healthy snack posing as a decadent treat.

Get my drift?

Healthy Funfetti Shake

I like my food real. I want no parts of that processed junk with ingredients I can’t pronounce. Give me the real deal–healthy, wholesome food made with ingredients that contain three syllables or less.

This healthy funfetti shake is made with the good stuff: bananas, almond milk, yogurt, oats, almonds, honey, and vanilla and almond extract.

Notice a trend? Each ingredient is three syllables or less. Each ingredient can be easily pronounced. Each ingredient is un-fooled around with. We’re real people. We deserve real ingredients.

I used Yulu Yogurt, the new yogurt on the block, to make this healthy shake. Yulu Yogurt is Aussie-style yogurt made right here in the United States. You guys, this yogurt is smooth. Matter of fact, it’s double smooth. Each batch of Yulu Yogurt is smoothed twice to achieve an ultra creamy, exceptionally smooth texture.

The new Yulu Yogurt is unlike any yogurt I’ve ever tried. 1. You can see the black speckles of vanilla beans right through the clear cup, 2. It’s velvety smooth, 3. There’s no tangy, sour taste, and 4. Each cup is packed with 9 grams of protein.

I think I found my new favorite yogurt.

Because Yulu isn’t tangy like other styles of yogurt, this funfetti shake tastes just like your slurping on a traditional milkshake made with ice cream.

This shake is rich in protein, calcium, fiber, and potassium. I added a heaping tablespoon of sprinkles for a boost of vibrant color. Because, sprinkles!

Real food. Real good. Happy slurping!

    Healthy and sprinkle laden!?!? Yes please! I can’t do healthy processed things either. It kind of defeats the purpose in my opinion.

    Sprinkles!!! I love tricking myself with healthy food that tastes like dessert, too, and this shake looks peeeerfect! I must try Yulu! I’ve had Aussie-style yogurt and love it, so I need to pick some Yulu up at the sto’. And some sprinkles, because: funfetti.

    P.S. I love spooning, too :)

    love this! Also, the wee one can’t type yet, but she has informed me that i “have to make this for her.” I don’t argue when she gets really serious about sprinkles.
