Protein shakes have made dieting easier since …well since they stopped tasting like powered cardboard. I however, find it amusing how many protein flavors there are. Some can be interesting to try, but with a little ingenuity, you can create just about any flavor there is without having to strain over the choice of chocolate vs peanut butter chocolate for your post workout.
I’m a big fan of adding fruit to my protein shakes; let me ask you, “would you rather have a faux blue powdered blueberry cream shake”, or a rich vanilla ice cream shake with real blueberries added. Maybe your answer will surprise me, I do know many that favor something like Aunt Jamaica’s over that real straight-from-the-tree boiled sap. Try this recipe if you’re looking to mix up your shakes a bit.
