After going out with a friend last night for a few beers (and maybe some bar bites) I decided I need to get back on track with breakfast. I don’t know about you, but weekend breakfasts can really get away from me if a large “egg and bacon” meal is made. It is easy to let portions get away from you and you end up feeling too full to start the day. During the week, I usually grab a piece of fruit, granola bar or yogurt to take with me out the door. I like this because it is convenient, and it also allows me only one portion with no chance to go back for more! This is why weekends scare me, so easy to get off track. So today, I have decided to make a one serving, high protein shake. This will not allow me to continue snacking all morning on what’s left in the pan and it”s BETTER than a milkshake from McDonalds! See the recipe below!
Reeses Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake
2 tbsp. PB2 powder
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 scoop whey chocolate protein powder
1/2 cup coconut milk (usually I would use soy for even more protein!) Note: all non dairy sources of milk usually have little protein or 0g, this is why I like vanilla soy 🙂 )
ice if desired
380 calories, 28g protein (about half the protein you need daily!)
