Snickerdoodle Surprise (Yep, a protein shake for dessert!)

You don't need to turn to your typical processed, sugar loaded, fattening dessert at night when you're craving something sweet for dessert!  Try a Snickerdoodle Surprise protein shake instead!  It will not squash your weight loss goals, will not make you feel guilty for having a "treat", and will give your body the nutrients it needs to heal through the night after a workout session or long day.
Approx 2 cups ice
1/2 cup Coconut Milk, Almond Milk or Soy Milk (I prefer coconut) for added creaminess
Approx 1 cup water
1 scoop plain or vanilla protein powder (I use a plain, no junk added protein from New Zealand as I do not like any fake sugars)
1 tbsp imitation butter extract (or to taste)
1/2 tbsp cinnamon (or to taste)
15 drops Vanilla Cream Stevia (or to taste)
Blend and enjoy!
(Adjust water and ice to the consistency you like and that works for your blender)

26 g protein

Next time you re craving a sweet dessert, try this instead!
