Chocolate Covered Strawberry Protein Shake

Since trying to build muscle, upping my protein is required.  After tiring my muscles out at 6am CrossFit, I need to refuel with a protein shake.

The milk and powder thing works, but I like to jazz them up… So…

I’m back with another YUMMY protein shake!

It may not be ice cream flavored like the last one, BUT it is definitely one of my favorite desserts turned healthy 🙂
