What is the difference between a shake and a smoothie?  Anyone?

I went to the store after the beach today.  Yes, the beach!  We have no candy for tomorrow so I thought I’d take a look at what’s on sale.  However, I was hungry so all I could see were the bags of Almond Joy and kids love those, right?  So I but what I need for dinner and breakfast and get no candy, not trusting  myself to be home alone with it.

I decide to have a protein shake to hold me until dinner.  I open the pantry and the coconut practically jumps out at me.  I am back to Almond Joy!  I blended the following ingredients to make an Almond Joy Protein shake that was delicious.  Sadly, I forgot to take a picture.

2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 heaping spoonful cocoa, 2 tablespoons shredded coconut, 1 scoop protein powder, handful of almonds,  dash vanilla extract, dash cinnamon, whatever sweetener you use (I use vegetable glycerin) to taste, 4 ice cubes

I put all of the above into the Vitamix, but a blender should work as well.  Blend until ice is crushed and it’s the consistency you like.  I drank mine, but if you blend it less you could eat it with a spoon.  ENJOY!

And yes, this is not really on topic, but it is in that I recognized candy would be a poor choice!
