Strawberry Protein Shake

After yesterday's artery clogging post, I figured that today would be a good time to share something that does the body good...one of my current favorite protein shakes. It's so important to rehydrate and refuel your body post-workout. An easy way to do that is by drinking water and a protein shake. Protein shakes allow protein to enter the body and be broken down quicker than eating protein (like chicken or tuna).


Ingredients: 

- 1 cup of almond milk (I use unsweetened vanilla)
- 5 frozen strawberries
- 1/2 of a frozen banana
- 1/2 tablespoon of vanilla extract
- Scoop or packet of protein (I use Perfect Fit Protein)

How to Make It:

Put all ingredients in blender (I use a Ninja) and mix together. Enjoy your shake while refueling your body! Note: if you're using fruit that isn't frozen, I would suggest adding in a few ice cubes so that your shake is chilled after everything is blended together. 

Super easy to make and super delicious! Plus amazing for your body. Sometimes I make this for breakfast but add 2 handfuls of spinach...sounds disgusting but I promise it's not. 

What's your favorite way to refuel & rehydrate post-workout?

  3. I drink your peanut-butter banana smoothie every morning as soon as I wake up, to make sure I've got enough protein in me for my workout. About 15 minutes after I'm done working out I get HUNGRY. I've been doing a lot of chicken and quinoa, but lately I've been on a shrimp taco kick. So good!

    Question: is the ninja as awesome as everyone says it is? I might be in the market for a new blender soon.
