Chocolate Almond Shake

Well I couldn't just stop at cookies with the almond butter! We had to add it into a protein shake for a little something fun :)

Why is a protein shake in a shot glass you may be wondering... because things are always cuter in smaller packages :)

John is a protein powder connoisseur. Some people may know wines... John knows protein powder! Hmmm I'd say it's a 2010 with a very floral bouquet...

umm yeah anyway... some protein powder has a really chalky taste to it.. bleh! But adding a dab of almond butter solves that problem quick!

2010 with a very floral bouquet....LOLOL! You tickle me.

Yum! This looks great! You should have John do another guest post this time on protein powder- I never know which is best, what brand of egg protein, whey, hemp, etc...? I've tried a few and am not overly impressed with any of them yet! I'd make more protein shakes if I could find the right powder.
