Shake, shake, shake

Today was my first attempt at making my own breakfast protein shake. Up until today I had been using one of the pyramid marketed pre-packaged shake mixes.

No complaints with the old, it just got expensive and I am getting confident enough with my food choices that I thought I could start making my own for less and have way more flexibility.

So armed with only chocolate protein powder, the Internet and Chocolate PB2 powder I started this morning.

I wish I had thought to photograph it before I slammed it down this morning. So for now I will just share the details on the recipe.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shale
1 scoop double chocolate whey protein powder
2 T chocolate PB2
1 cup Unflavored Almond milk
Ice

Dumped all in blender on milk shake setting.

It was YUMMY! My old shakes would take me over an hour to finish, sometimes two hours. This was slammed in less than an hour! I was worried the snack monster would hit this morning and it did not! So not only yummy but filling too!
