Chocolate Chip Protein shake holiday gift idea
Protein powder (whatever flavor you want, but I used chocolate)
Dark chocolate chips
Plastic decorating bags (you can find these in the cake decorating section at Michael's craft stores)
Take one of the plastic bags and cut the tip off. You will use this bag as a sifter and insert it in the other bags as you pour the protein powder in. This keeps the powder from sticking to the bag so it doesn't look "foggy".
After you insert the bag with the cut tip in another bag scoop protein powder in (I used 3 scoops per bag) then slowly remove the bag with the cut tip out and the powder will sift down into the other bag. Then pour in about 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips on top. Twist the top of the bag and secure with a rubber band. Tie ribbon around the rubber band.
You can also add almonds or sugar free peppermint at the top of the powder as well. Make sure you tell whomever you give it to that it's protein powder and not hot chocolate :) This can be mixed in a blender with ice and water or ice and soymilk or skim milk.
