If you're a health nut who feels guilty for every piece of king cake you eat, New Orleans-based health coach Dani McNeil has the perfect thing for you. The king cake protein shake recipe is making the rounds and we give it two thumbs up.

King Cake Protein Shake

1. Creamy Vanilla shake (or your choice of protein shake)
2. Almond milk, unsweetened
3. Splash of almond extract
4. Splash of Vanilla Butter & Nut extract
5. pecans
6. Crushed ice

If you're looking to make it a bit more "spicy"... try adding a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to get the perfect king cake taste. Happy Mardi Gras!
