This PB2 Protein Shake is seriously yummy. Personally, I prefer my protein drinks/smoothies a bit slushier, so, if you're like me, I'd be sure to add frozen bananas, or at least some ice cubes when blending it. For bonus fiber, I tossed in about a teaspoon of flax meal. Variation option: if you want to go all chocolate-y with this one, you could use the PB2 w/chocolate, instead, and toss in some cacao, to get those bonus antioxidants!
