Recipe Notes

For purposes of calculating nutritional information, I used my favorite IdealLean Cake Batter protein powder. You can substitute with a similar vanilla or cake batter flavored protein powder, but the nutritional stats will change. As an alternative, I also like Quest Vanilla Milkshake protein powder in this recipe. Nutrition information does not include optional toppings.

You can find caramel flavor in the baking aisle at many grocery stores (near the vanilla extract).
