Protein Breakfast Shake

During the week, I don't get a chance to eat lunch until around 1 and my breakfast time varies. Because I'm a teacher, it's not like I can pull out a snack whenever the urge strikes, so I'm always on the hunt for healthy breakfasts that will keep me full until my prep period.

Enter Slim Fast.

Now, I am NOT a Slim Fast person. Admittedly, I did it for my wedding and did see results, but that's not necessarily a road I plan to travel again; it just doesn't work for my lifestyle. But I found a can of their protein shake powder at the grocery store and thought I'd try it out.

I threw in some additions and am really satisfied with the result. I make it a few times a week, and it's just as delicious as it is filling. I drink it in my car around 7am, and with a fiber bar or some fruit around 10am, I'm good to go until lunch.

Combine all ingredients in a blender (or in a large cup to use with an immersion blender) and blend until desired consistency.
