1cupUnsweetened Vanilla Almond Milkor alternative milk
1/8teaspoonImitation Vanilla Extractplus a few extra drops
1scoopAtkins Vanilla Protein Powderor preferred vanilla protein powder
1cupFresh Baby Spinachoptional
Add all ingredients to the blender in the order they're listed. If using frozen banana, let the ingredients sit in the blender for 3 to 5 minutes to soften so they blend more easily. (If adding spinach, you may want to add ¼ to ½ cup more milk to thin the consistency,)
Cover the blender with a top and start blending on low. Gradually increase the speed and blend until everything is well incorporated and smooth. Makes 2 cups.
You can double or triple the batch to have more on hand, but I recommend not adding the vanilla extract until you're ready to drink it. As the vanilla sits, it can begin to stale (so to speak) and it'll throw off the flavor.Adding up to 1 cup of baby spinach per serving will not change the flavor, but it will decrease the sweetness just slightly.
