Minty Shamrock Protein Shake

Since we are rapidly approaching St. Patrick's Day - here's a new recipe for you!

Minty Shamrock Protein Shake
If you're not using Greenberry Shakeology, you don't need to add the peanut butter.  Greenberry is LOADED with veggies & nutrient-dense ingredients.  For some reason, the peanut butter completely "cuts" that "green" aftertaste.  The PB is not needed if you will be making your shake with regular vanilla protein powder.

-1 scoop of Greenberry Shakeology (or a vanilla protein powder of your choice)
-2 heaping tablespoons PB2 powdered peanut butter (or 1 teaspoon peanut butter)
-2 tablespoons fat-free, sugar-free cheesecake-flavored instant pudding mix (this makes it creamy like ice cream)
-couple of drops of mint extract (play with the amount - too much will clear your sinuses & too little makes the shake blah.)
-2 cups of ice
-Truvia or Stevia sweetener, to taste

Toss the protein powder, peanut butter, pudding mix, mint, ice, and sweetener into a blender.  Blend from medium speed to high, adding water as needed until the shake has your preferred consistency.

Pour into a glass and enjoy!
