    It’s unbelievable that you can drink a protein shake or smoothie these days and it can taste so close to a high calorie, indulgent milk shake! I love all the flavors and brands available on the market today.

    Basic protein shake ingredients:

    My protein shakes usually have the same ingredients.⁠ I almost always use,

    1. Protein powder (any flavor)⁠
    2. skim milk or almond milk⁠
    3. sugar free pudding mix⁠
    4. and whipped cream or other flavored toppings.⁠

    These pattern works well for me. I like thicker protein shakes. In fact, I prefer them so thick, that I have to eat it with a spoon like pudding. Using the sugar free pudding mix, and half as much liquid helps with that.

    BUT- Today I decided to add some Greek yogurt to make it a little creamier and boost the protein a touch! ⁠

    My final recipe was for the protein shake was:⁠

    • 1 scoop Caramel Toffee Protein Powder
    • 1/2 cup skim milk⁠
    • 1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt⁠
    • 1 tablespoon sugar free vanilla pudding mix⁠
    • 1/2 cup ice⁠

    Toppings (they are included with the calories and macros)

    • 1 tablespoon whipped cream⁠
    • 1 tablespoon Walden Farms caramel Dip⁠
    • 1 teaspoon toffee bits⁠

    Do I have to use caramel toffee protein powder

    You don’t! In fact, the flavor wasn’t that strong. I think you can get the same thing by using vanilla protein powder, and adding the caramel dip to the shake, rather than as a topping. Also, I saw today while I was at the grocery store, caramel extract in the cake decorating aisle!

    Do I need protein powder?

    You absolutely do not need protein powder to get your protein goals in the day. I have a full list of protein ideas that I eat the most, and protein powder is actually not that frequent in my diet!

    Make it a balanced, portion controlled meal

    If you choose a protein shake like this for breakfast (and there is no fruit or any other food group besides dairy, I would definitely eat this with fruit or oatmeal for a more balanced breakfast!
