[Recipes] Winter Mint Chocolate Protein Shake
For anyone who craves refreshing, invigorating, cool mint chocolate without the calories, fat, or sugar, the Winter Mint Chocolate Protein Shake is an unbelievably delicious, guilt-free indulgence. With over 25 grams of HQ protein, 45% DV calcium, and under 10 grams of sugar, it’s an extremely lean way to transform boring whey protein into a creamy, decadent milkshake in a snap.
The Winter Mint Chocolate Protein Shake
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Throw chocolate/mint chocolate whey protein powder, almond milk, and Edy’s mint chocolate chip ice cream in a large blender.
Add 1 drop peppermint extract for an extra minty protein shake, if desired. Blend on high until smooth and the color is a solid, light brown. Blending should last about 15 – 20 seconds on high.
