Not only does my team work hard every day to deliver valuable, helpful content, they also know how to make a mean protein shake! This recipe comes from one of our team members, and it’s got the same dreamy flavors as cookies and cream and a Mounds candy bar. (Of course, without all the sugars, artificial additives, and regret…)
If you aren’t already a protein shake fan, you will be. Protein shakes are the number one needle mover when it comes to quick weight loss, and I recommend them in both The Virgin Diet and the Sugar Impact Diet. They’re an easy way to get great nutrition, and they keep you from skipping meals or fueling up with sugar and empty carbs that send you into a cycle of mood swings and energy crashes.
