Butterfinger Protein Shake

I’ve recently become addicted to these super good protein shakes at this nutrition place in town, but can’t justify spending $9 a day on a shake. SO I tried my hand at recreating my favorite Butterfinger Protein Shake and ended up loving my thrown together version even more. And YAY for that because $270 a month on shakes alone just ain’t happenin’ around here. I love the people up at our shake place, and that freakin’ green tea, so I’ll still be poppin’ in from time to time for sure.

Alright, so, from my endless searching of the internet I discovered most candy bar named protein shakes have some flavor of sugar free pudding in them. I chose chocolate as the base for this, and then added the sugar free caramel syrup I use in my coffee because that sounded very butterfingery to me (totally a word!). Powdered peanut butter for obvious reasons, and then cookies and cream protein because it’s my favorite and totally worked for this. 

Did I mention the entire thing is only 180 calories? Crazy talk. I’m always looking for low calorie ways to get a high amount of protein in without the drink tasting like chalk, and this absolutely does the trick. At only 180 calories, you could even throw an extra scoop of protein in there and still be under 300 for a meal replacement shake.

The end product is so good even my kids want me to start making them their own little shakes before school. They’re not usually great about eating breakfast, so I’m not entirely opposed to making a version of this for them as well. If you love butterfinger, you’re going to love this shake!
