Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If you like those expensive protein drinks you can buy at the health stores or super markets(Odawalla), give this a try. These taste great , fill you up and give you a great boost to start off your day. The shake I'm going to be showing you how to make is roughly 295 calories and close to 16 fl oz.
What you'll need:
- 3/4 Cup milk (2 percent)
