Recipe Notes

*I find some protein powders don't have much of an after taste, while others can be downright non-palatable! Before making this or any other recipe, taste your protein powder to be sure that you love it.

*Peppermint extract is VERY strong.  Be sure to pour it into a small measuring spoon or small dish before actually dropping it into the shake.  You don’t want to overpower.  You literally need a single drop.  If you have a medicine dropper or kitchen syringe, those work perfectly to help acquire a single drop with ease.
