Protein Whip Drink

Who needs fancy, expensive protein powder to make a good protein drink? Personally I think these protein powders are not the best option - they are quite pricey, not always that tasty, and there are certainly enough ways to get sufficient protein from real foods. Here is a quick idea I came up with when I was feeling an energy low - this is just a starting point for a great drink and can certainly yield endless flavor possibilities. A protein drink like this is just as easy and quick to whip up as a cup of coffee or hot chocolate - so next time you are in need of a pick me up - try this.
You will need: skim milk powder (a cheaper, more versatile alternative to protein powders), unsweetened cocoa powder, nut butter. How much: a spoonful or a plash of each. Water or non-dairy milk, to fill the cup. Maple syrup or honey, vanilla or almond extract, to taste. 
Mix all together in a cup and enjoy immediately. Be sure to use a very cold beverage for a refreshing drink.
