HT to Ryan

for an absolutely refreshing and delightful shake.  This is a meal-substitute and so great for Lent or any time of fasting.  To make one serving:

1 cup of almond milk
1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons of sugar-free, fat-free instant pudding - can use whatever flavor you like - chocolate is great!
Handful of ice.

Blend and voila!  You have a delicious, nutritious shake.  As a variation, you can also throw in there a tablespoon of low-fat cottage cheese.  That ups the protein even further.  Tasty, but don't take my word for it.  Try it!

I tried this for breakfast - I used unsweetened chocolate almond milk, 1 T of regular vanilla instant pudding since that's what I had on hand, and added a scoop of protein powder. Really good! Thanks for sharing.

Yeah, Brenda! We had it for breakfast too. We've also found that you can easily add a tablespoon or two of cottage or ricotta cheese to beef up the protein.
