Recipe by Mikel Norwitz
Makes plenty for two people:
One cup plain yogurt (whole fat)
One cup unsweetened soy milk (you can use milk if you want)
3 Tbsp whole flax seeds (optional but very yummy)
2 Tbsp soy protein powder (vanilla flavored or plain)
1/2 tsp (white powder) stevia (or to taste)
Several Tbsp fruit or to taste (try a lower carb fruit like strawberries or blueberries)
If you don't use fruit you may want to add a few drops of vanilla or a no-carb natural flavoring. Banana is excellent. Lemon flavoring plus nutmeg powder gives the shake an eggnog flavor.
Stick in blender and blend until smooth and fully mixed. Makes enough for two
people (about 3 cups).
The soy milk has 4 grams of carbs per cup and the stevia and soy protein powder have zero (more or less). Plain yogurt has 1/2 of the carbs listed on the label because the bacteria gets counted as carbohydrate.
