Look at that. That’s like…more than 25 ounces. It’s HUGE. It’s filling. It’s energizing. And it’s simple. I originally came up with this recipe because I always loved having this “Almond Buzz” protein shake from this place called Embody. It’s a little fitness gourmet shop that has awesome juices, protein shakes, and even some snazzy little food items. However, it’s crazy expensive. Like $7 for a 16 oz shake. And the shake itself is rather thin. Hence, my version that is made at home, similar in calories, and much bigger/more filling!
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1 Tbs better ‘n peanut butter
- 1 scoop (approx. 28 grams) vanilla soy protein powder
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 1/2 tsp instant espresso powder
Combine all in blender. Blend to desired consistency. I usually do the mix option, then the liquify option to make sure all the ice is completely smoothed over. Enjoy!
I calculated the calorie count myself because my little spark recipes tool was giving me some trouble-
