PB Cup Protein Shake


I am back on a protein shake kick because my brother got me a Nutribullet for Christmas. Lucky for me, this protein shake also happens to be on my monthly grocery shopping list. You can take a look at it here - http://venuscrossing.blogspot.com/2015/11/a-month-of-meal-plans-and-groceries-in.html


Man, this blender is AMAZING! I thought my Kitchenaid blender was fantastic, or even my Ninja. But this machine grinds spinach into bits of nothing and makes ice into snowcone-style shaved ice. I have been so impressed. It is also made to be one cup sized, the top flips off and you can put a handle lid on. It is also super easy to clean. Pretty much perfect for anyone who makes shakes and smoothies.

So this protein shake is just about my favorite one ever. If you like chocolate and peanut butter, you will love it. It takes like a milkshake, no way shape or form healthy LOL
