Salted Chocolate Caramel
It seems so simple a combination but it packs a punch. While initially you might be turned off by the idea of adding salt to your shake, it makes a big impact. Apparently, there is even scientific research to show that adding a pinch of salt (good quality salt!) to something makes it sweeter.
This is one shake that I am perfectly happy to make with water when I am trying to watch my intake, although 30 calories for unsweetened almond milk isn't exactly a huge deal. The most challenging part of this shake is finding caramel extract.
