WHAT YOU NEED:
Optional: vanilla protein powder of choice
Lately, I've been sticking with a breakfast shake instead of an entire meal in the morning. I feel a little lighter throughout the day, and to be honest, it saves a lot of time in the mornings . . . All I have to do is rinse the vitamix and I'm good to go!
As I've been playing with these breakfast shakes, I've learned that to be a complete meal replacement shake, you need to include protein, healthy fats, good carbs, etc. So naturally, I've been experimenting with all different kinds of shakes: the meal replacement shake, the snack shake, the after-workout protein shake, and of course, the dessert shake (typical me). Call this shake what you want, but it could pretty much fit into any of those categories! That's why I love it so very, very much :D
