Shakes are perfect anytime of day! I usually have one for either breakfast, post workout, & before bed & sometimes all 3! Now that it is getting warm outside I craaave them!
I love protein shakes because they are so versatile. You really can put anything in your shake. Here is one of my low cal shakes that I make often.
First I get everything out.. (okay, not really.. I grab and go.. but for your viewing pleasure)
I start with a liquid base- You can use water or any type of milk works just fine.
I use about a 1-1.5 cups of Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almond Milk
Then I add my 1 scoop of protein. Vanilla Elite Whey was the winner today.
Then I add a pinch of both Gaur Gum and Xanthan Gum, For creaminess and thickness. You can grab these online on amazon or I picked mine up at my local grocery store
I usually add a fruit- Frozen banana, blackberries, blueberries etc. But yesterday I picked up these driscoll beauties at Costco and of course a Raspberry shake was calling my name.
I only use a handful and snack on a few more while its blending :)
I used Chia seeds today- You may also use ground flax seeds or PB/AB
Simply toss 7-10 ice cubes in
A handful or two of spinach... (Yes, spinach! I promise you can't taste it and you will reap all the
BLEND 'ER UP!
I love watching the color change ;)
Pour into your glass and drink the remaining straight from the blender ;)
or be lady like and just refill your glass but I prefer to just drink it.
Healthy, Protein Packed, Creeeamy, smooth and delicious!
