Here’s what you’ll need:
2 cups frozen, unsweetened almond milk ice cubes (pour 2 cups of almond milk into an ice cube tray)
1 cup liquid, unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (Quest or other brand)
1/4 tsp pure peppermint extract
3-4 Stevia packets, sweeten to taste (taste smoothie and make sure it is sweet enough for you – add more sweetener if you want to)
Here’s what you’ll do:
Put everything in your blender and blend on high until it is a smooth and creamy smoothie. It makes a very large portion and is only about 190 calories. Sometimes I cut up a mint chunk Quest bar and mix it in for some texture. I am in love with this dessert!
You can also try various flavor combinations using different extracts and protein powder flavors.
Here are a couple of my favorites: salted-caramel; chocolate; peanut butter cup
