Add all ingredients to a blender. Add ice cubes, if using.
Mix everything on high speed until you get an even silky texture.
If the shake is too thick, add a little more liquid – milk or water. Blend again until everything is well combined.
Taste the shake and add additional sweetener if the shake is not sweet enough. I recommend using 1-2 soaked dates, date syrup, raw honey or maple syrup, stevia, or any low-carb sweetener. This is totally based on your preference.
Transfer the shake into a glass.
Add toppings: Be creative here and add toppings you like.
Serve and enjoy!
Makes 1 portion that serves 1 person (full meal) or 2 servings as a snack.Substitutions
Substitute oat milk with any plant-based milk except coconut milk. Coconut milk won't work well here. Cow's milk is fine.
Substitute ground flax seeds with hemp seeds or chia seeds.
MAKE IT WITHOUT BANANA: Banana gives this protein shake creaminess and sweetness. If you want to make this shake without banana, substitute banana with ½ avocado. In that case, you may need to add some sweetener. I recommend using 1-2 soaked dates, date syrup, raw honey or maple syrup, stevia, or any low-carb sweetener.
MAKE IT VEGAN: Use vegan protein powder and plant-based milk.
Tips for storing
Store in a glass jar with a lid or shaker and keep refrigerated for up to one day.
Don't forget to shake it or stir it with the spoon before consuming it.
Flax seeds tend to make the smoothie thick in the morning (they soak up the moisture), so you may need to add a bit of liquid the next day - milk or water.
