Shake it up, Grokette!

Before I give you my favourite shake recipe,  I want to tell you about my favourite appliance.  I truly love the Magic Bullet -- my kitchen wouldn't be the same without it.   This thing has such versatility.  Grate some fresh parmesan, make a soup, prep your scrambled eggs or make your favourite shake.  It makes for great frozen drinks too!

Grokette's Chocolate Banana Shake
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 of a banana
  • 1 scoop of whey protein powder (unflavoured)
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed (ground in the Bullet)
  • a few ice cubes
Put it in the Bullet, or in a blender and enjoy!
