Nik’s Christmas Cookie Protein Shake
8 oz. milk (whatever kind you use)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I like this kind and it’s what I used in the shake kits last year)
1 tbsp sugar-free butterscotch pudding powder
1 oz. either sugar-free brown-sugar cinnamon syrup (what I used last year) or sugar-free cookie dough syrup (I tried it this year and NOM!)
NOTE: In the absence of EITHER syrup, you can use a tablespoon of sugar-free pancake syrup + a generous dash of cinnamon for a cold shake, 1/8 tsp. maple extract + a generous dash of cinnamon for a hot preparation.
Optional: Ice, Whipped Cream, embellishments
If making cold: Combine ingredients and mix by the Triple X Method. Or not, your choice!
If making hot: Combine ingredients and mix using the Bariatric Foodie Method for Making Hot Protein Drinks. Or not, your choice!
