^ Yummy Protein Shake

One thing that is tough is finding the right foods to eat. With exercise and a good diet, high protein and good carbs are a must. I find regular protein shakes a little unappetizing, however, but I figured out something last summer that tastes great, so I thought I'd share!

Here is my recipe for a (fairly) low calorie, high protein shake!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Protein Shake

1 Vanilla Slim Fast Shake
1 Tbs. Peanut Butter
1 Scoop Trader Darwin's Vanilla Flavored Whey Protein Powder (Found at Trader Joe's)
1 Scoop Ice (More or less to preference of consistency)

Protein: 31 grams
Total Fat: 14 grams (less than half the grams of fat in a regular PB&J sandwich!)
Calories: 360

Interesting. I've never thought of using SlimFast shakes in shakes before. I usually just use almond milk.

I like using the slimfast shake because of the extra protein in them, although I use almond milk for the lower calorie, later night, low-carb shakes!:)
