So, I haven’t posted here in months…sorry about that. I do plan on keeping up with this, especially the recipes section. I’ve been working hard on a new routine and working towards training for my first half marathon. I’ve been developing a new nutrition plan for myself, as well as a new routine which mixes hypertrophy training with half marathon training. I also moved.
Needless to say, I have been EXHAUSTED. Now that I’m back in the swing of things, I’ll be posting here more often! Having just turned 28 this month, I look forward to what MY new year has in store for me.
Don’t kill me…but since I’ve moved, I’ve had a lot less time to prepare breakfast in the morning before work. I’ve had to switch my normal breakfast of eggs and chicken sausage to a whey supplement shake and a piece of my Coconut Flour Banana Bread. No complaints though! This shake is delicious! This shake is also amazing post-workout, or just anytime you need to get a little extra protein in and want something sweet!
Here is the recipe…
Chocolate PB&J Protein Shake
- 5 oz of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1/4 cup frozen berries of your choice (I like the blackberry, blueberry, raspberry mix I get at Costco!)
- 1 tbsp Chocolate PB2
- 1 serving (or more depending on your protein needs) of protein powder of your choice. (I am currently using Vitacost’s Whey Protein Complex in Chocolate. It’s more natural than other brands and doesn’t use artificial sweeteners or colors! The taste is awesome, too!)
- 1 tsp arrowroot powder
Place all ingredients in personal sized mini blender and blend until desire thickness. I like mine really thick and creamy. It takes about 2 minutes to get it to that thickness!
Stay tuned for more protein packed recipes… 🙂
