Protein Goodness

I’m trying to add more protein to my diet and a good source is protein shakes.  I used to make protein shakes every now and then after hard workouts, but now I am making an effort to make them every morning with breakfast. I used to eat two eggs, toast, and fresh fruit, but now I eat two eggs and drink a shake.

I don’t want to drink the same flavor shake everyday so I like to mix up the fruits, veggies, and protein powder flavor.

Recipe:

  • One scoop vanilla or chocolate protein powder
  • Handful of spinach (I keep a bag of the organic spinach in the freezer)
  • Flaxseed (I pour in roughly two tablespoons) or Chia Seed
  • Fruit/Veggie mixture.  I LOVE my HEB grocery store because they have BLENDABLES which already have the fruit/veggie mixture with no added ingredients.  I use half the bag for one smoothie.
  • Depending on how I’m feeling, I’ll add in berries or bananas or anything fresh that I have lying around.
  • Water or unsweetened almond milk (about a cup or enough to cover the ingredients)
  • I’ll top with berries or coconut too!

As you can see in the picture below, this is an example of what goes in my shake.

I use the NutriBullet, and it is amazing.  Shakes turn out great everytime!

What are some of your favorite protein shake combos?

Sincerely,

Sutton
