  2. To make this recipe vegan, be sure to use a vegan protein powder like pea protein.
  3. If you don’t have a high-speed blender, you may need to stop the blender and scrape down the sides to ensure that the ingredients get fully blended.
  4. To make this vanilla-flavored instead of chocolate, leave out the cocoa powder and add ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract instead.
