Indulge your sweet tooth and get some protein, too, with a Butter Pecan Protein Shake. This protein shake only tastes sinful: this is gluten free and dairy free!

This tastes so good, it could qualify as a milkshake dessert!
If you are watching your sugar intake: try using Stevia instead of dates in this recipe, or just skip the added sweetener. Your shake won’t be quite as thick, but you can cut some calories and sugar if you prefer.
If you are watching calories: cut the dates and pecans in half for a lower calorie shake (this will trim @50 calories)
