Syntrax Matrix 5.0 Protein - Orange Cream

If you asked me to name one of my absolute favorite flavors in the world?  It's an orange creamsicle.  There's an ice cream shop in my town that makes a killer soft serve orange sherbet and vanilla ice cream twist, that I Would Give You A Puppy to be able to eat again.  I would give away my bypass and take a one-day pass for a big ole cuppa orange creamsicley twisty ice cream, with assorted colored sprinkles, please. 

But, seeing as that's not going to happen?  I could just deal with the stupid sugar-free pops in the freezer.  But, I don't.  I don't like those.  I Want Creamy Goodness!

I normally don't buy five pound jugs or bags of protein powder, because, "what if it tastes like ass?"  But - I was in this store, and I saw this flavor:  Orange Cream?!  No way.  I gotta try it.

After the initial shock of, "How much is this store charging for this bag of protein?"  I realized that I may actually really enjoy this flavor and use it all the time - it's probably worth it.  So, I caved.

It's so worth it.  Oh My Dog, it's delicious.  When I first opened the bag, I could smell the orange and vanilla flavors - and I was immediately excited to try it.  You need to know - I broke my blender with the last go-round of protein shake making - so I had to bring this to work to use it.

I've been making it like this:

1 scoop Matrix 5.0 Orange Cream
16 oz ice
4 oz water
1 oz sugar-free vanilla syrup
1 orange slice

Blend at highest power, enjoy!  Alternatively, you could use skim milk or soy milk for the liquid, both taste awesome in this shake.  I am not a fan of straight protein shakes, I generally doctor everything up - but I would drink this simply mixed with water if necessary.  It's that good.  I'm very happy with it.
