Recipe: Chocolate-Covered Marzipan Shake

by JJ Virgin on December 14, 2017

It’s no secret I’m an almond-lover. I’m also a huge chocolate fan. I bet you can see where this is going…

I really couldn’t resist a protein shake that blends the best of both worlds into a creamy, nutty breakfast that tastes exactly like chocolate-covered marzipan – minus all that sugar, of course!

If you’re a java fan, you’ll appreciate knowing this shake is also delicious made with 5 ounces of vanilla almond milk and 5 ounces of chilled coffee. That’s a good morning!
