Why make it at home? I have been spending $9.80 for a protein shake at one specific store weekly and decided to watch them make the shake.  (Protein shakes with whey powder usually cost $9 or more depending on the store)

I realized I’ve been overspending for a shake that I could make at home at significant savings and without much labor involved.

Cost Make it at home for less than $3 by shopping at warehouse club such as Costco.
