A Pecan Pie to Proudly Partake of

Whenever I hear the words Pecan Pie I think of "When Harry Met Sally" that scene at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Pecan Pieeeeee. I'm a sucker for romantic comedies. Back to the shake... Yum! Seriously it's liquid Pecan Pie. Soooo good. This is what I'm sipping on this AM.

Shelly's Pecan Pie Protein Shake

1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Vanilla Torani Syrup
1 Tablespoon Pecans
1 teaspoon Imitation Butter Extract (in the spices aisle)
2-3 cubes of Ice

Whiz in blender till smooth. Top with a squirt No Sugar Added, Homemade Whipped Cream and a few more chopped Pecans, optional.

This shake is a variation on my Butter Pecan Protein Ice Cream. So if you love that... you'll love this.

It's only Tuesday and I already feel like I'm playing catch-up. I had so many things I needed to do yesterday all of which required the computer but at 10 AM everything I was working on the computer went black. Last week we got a postcard in the mail for a scheduled power outage to do some upgrading in my 'hood which I stuck on the fridge and never looked at it again. So of course yesterday morning when the screen went dark I had that "oh crap, that's today" moment. I grabbed the postcard and ughhh "outage could last from 9 to 4:30 PM." I hate being forced Amish. No computer, no music, no coffee?! Oh-heck-no. So I grabbed the laptop and set up the mobile office at Starbucks but you know how that goes, got sucked into people watching and didn't get as much done.

Hope your week is off to a GREAT start.

Have you ever tried the Sugar-free Pralines syrup? That makes it taste like pecan pie as well.

I really really really REALLY WISH you'd come out with a cookbook of all these yummy recipes. I'd gladly pay to have them handy in my kitchen at 6am when I'm crazy for something yummy but too lazy to sit at the computer and search! You're a food genius!
