Whip up this recipe on busy mornings when you don’t have time to prep a full breakfast. Fancy omelets are great, but they’re not exactly quick to make, nor are they very easy to take on-the-go. Instead, this shake is a quick and easy way to make sure you can have enough energy to make it through to lunch.
