Protein Shakes

Here are some of my favorite protein shakes. In blender add all ingredients & mix well. You can use any type of protein powder or substitute the almond milk for soy or low fat milk or reduce the amount of milk but making ½ milk, ½ water. Note that using Greek yogurt will increase the caloric intake so these are more meal-replacement type shakes.
