Grab your blender and start mixin’ because this milkshake is the perfect fuel for finals week. It’s packed with protein from yogurt, nuts and trendy chia seeds, but tastes way better than those powder shakes. Try it for breakfast, as a snack, after a workout or before a late night study session to keep your energy up. It tastes so good, you’ll trick your body into thinking you just downed an authentic diner milkshake. Roller skates optional.
