*8-10 oz. unsweetened Vanilla almond milk (you can use regular milk, but I have limited my dairy significantly over the past year)
*1 scoop protein powder- I use Chocolate.
*small handful of frozen blueberries
*small handful of frozen spinach (you won’t taste it, trust me!)
*2 TB of unsweeted cocoa powder (You may adjust this up or down depending on your personal preferences. Best to start with small amount and add more if you like it)
*1 TB Natural Peanut Butter (My favorite is Smuckers Natural Chunky) OR PB2 Powdered PB
I also like to pour in about half a cup of my coffee from that morning. Totally optional. But delicious.
*Crushed ice. The more you add, the more like a ‘slushy’ it will be.
Put all in your blender and blend. And be ready to have your mind blown.
This shake is NOT low-calorie, so if you are watching your calories, this may not be the best version for you. I do not watch calories, but look to eat nutritious, whole foods high in protein and fiber so this fits my personal goals perfectly.
*After drinking this (especially if you drink it while driving to work like I do) check your teeth when you finish! 🙂 The blueberry seeds and spinach like to hang around. 🙂
