Sometimes mid-morning instead of a snack, I make this easy healthy chocolate energy shake. One afternoon while at a vitamin and herbal shop, I picked up a couple of single packets of energy shake mixes. In the past, many of the shake mixes I bought weren’t very tasty and had a “grainy” taste to them. I was pleasantly surprised when I made this at home. I picked up a couple of packets of Spiru-Tein High Energy Protein and tried several flavors. The chocolate is amazing. You don’t necessarily need a blender, but I used one to make sure all the lumps were gone. This shake is filling and definitely held me over until lunch.
This is a quick and easy mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack. This healthy chocolate energy shake is delicious is low-fat and low-calorie.
