Protein Shake - Chocolate Almond

I'm going to list the brands I use, but there are tons of options out there. Use what you like!

1 Slim Fast Lower Carb Creamy Chocolate Shake
1 Scoop of Body Fortress Chocolate Whey Protein
A couple of ice cubes or a splash of water
1-2 drops of Pure Almond Extract
Tiniest pinch of salt

Throw everything in a blender and blend until smooth. To keep from overdoing the extract, just use a measuring spoon and let 1 or 2 drops fall into that first. If you spill some, you won't ruin your shake!

This Shake has 320 Calories, 10 Grams of Fat, 7 Carbs, 3 Grams of Fiber, <3 Grams of Sugar, 50 Grams of Protein, 51% of daily Calcium


  1. wow thats alot of protein..nice. I notice you have quite a few different kinds of protein powders.

  2. We bought the basic Body Fortress chocolate protein powder at kroger for, get this, $26!! YIKES. Well the next day I found the same darn things in a variety of flavors for only $14.99 a container at Wal Mart. As much as I hate saying this, go to wal mart for your protein powders and shakes, that will honestly save you quite a bit of money.
