A lot of people ask what we put in our protein drinks and I'll have to admit, it varies daily. I make James and myself a protein drink every night in preparation for our early morning work outs. One of my favorite shakes is my PB & J protein shake.
1. one serving vanilla cream protein powder
2. crushed ice
3. 1 cup almond milk
4. 1/2 cup water
5. 1/2 tsp guar gum
6. 1 banana
7. 1 tbsp raspberry jam with a few fresh berries thrown in
8. 1/2 to 1 tbsp almond or tahini butter
9. Amazing Grass Cocoa mix (optional).
10. Cinnamon (optional).
Blend all to until TASTY!! I love this because it taste just like a PB&J but way more protein packed.
So what about all those smoothie places. Do you know whats in them??
