Description: Ingredient Quantity
Almond Butter 3 tbsp
Almond Milk 1 cup
cinammon 1 tsp
vanilla 4-5 drops
liquid splenda 2 drops
ice 1 cup
protein powder 1 scoop

This is a low carb protein shake recipe to replace the high carb protein shakes I used to make in the past. It is also a tasty treat! Based on a 2,000 calorie diet and 20 carbs max/day, this keeps you right under the limit.

Almond milk is probably optional - you can substitute water or low carb milk of your choice. It may be less smooth with pure water. Subtract 1 carb, 1g of protein and 40 calories.

You can, of course, sub any protein powder you have on hand, but most others contain at least 1 carb. You could also sub or add flax, oat fiber or poly-D if you are also looking for fiber. Reduce the protein by 26g and calories by 110.

Blueberries compliment almonds well (~6 blueberries = 1 carb). However, I found I was barely able to taste them in this shake, so they are probably not worth it.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): I realy like that taste
Cons: Almond butter doesn't blend in well

Tried it liked it. But before I added the almond butter I heated it in micro to soften it up thinking it would blend in the liquid better.
The nice thing is I already had the ingredients on hand.
I like to use stevia for the sweetener.The almond milk is the same brand you use it's the 40 calorie one because it's low in carbs.
I might try adding a raw egg next time and see how that taste...
