    I love 1 scoop of vanilla protein mix, handful of blueberries or cherries, almond milk, spinach /kale with a dash of the following spices: vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg or a few dashes of pumpkin pie spice! It’s like pie in a glass! Or replace spices with a toothpick stir of a spiced vitality oils 😉

    I made this in my vitamix and added a frozen banana and another scoop of pure protein chocolate and it turned out great. I think next time, I will reduce the ice cubes too so it has more flavor.

    We love to add Cinnamon Bark Vitality to ours, it tastes like an iced Mexican hot chocolate. The Orange Vitality is amazing too. Both added to Pure Protein chocolate deluxe.
