A little background about this shake. My almost 9-year-old slept in this morning and woke up feeling famished. I made a huge batch of oatmeal using up ingredients because I am going food shopping later today. As on most oatmeal mornings, he groaned. Today he went even further and flat-out refused to eat it. After a bit of back and forth, I suggested he make his own breakfast. He was overjoyed and made this shake, which we named the Strawberry Independence Shake as a tribute to his
stubbornness independence. This was just his first breakfast, but he chugged it down. The interesting thing is that I have made numerous protein shakes similar to this, and he never “likes” them.

Add frozen strawberries and banana into Vitamix or other high-powered blender. Add unsweetened rice milk up to the 2 cup mark. Add remaining ingredients and blend for 20-30 seconds or until smooth. Enjoy!
