Oreo Protein Shake Nutrition

The shake contains 340 calories and 43 grams of carbs. You can make this lower in calories by using a sugar free chocolate syrup or only using 1 Oreo cookie.
The unsweetened almond milk is a great low-calorie and lactose-free alternative to cow's milk, and it's also rich in vitamin E and calcium.
Add ¼ teaspoon xanthan gum to the shake to help thicken it. You can also add extra ice or extra banana.
Yup! Don't go overboard on the protein powder though - consider another source such as vanilla Greek yogurt or skim milk!
