Wake Up Wednesday: Protein Shake Recipe

Good Morning!!

I have been making more of an effort to be active and work out, and fueling your body after the gym is just as important as the actual workout. 30 minutes after your workout is the perfect time to promote muscle growth! I like to make a shake to drink after the gym that is filled with protein from various foods.

Ingredients:

1.5 scoops of protein powder (this can be your choice of brand. I use Trader Darwin’s Vanilla Soy Protein Powder)

soy

1 banana

1 Scoop Peanut Butter

Handful of berries (I use frozen blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries)

Almond Milk

1/3 cup of 2% Plain greek yogurt

1 Tablespoon coconut oil

Directions:

Add all ingredients besides the almond milk to a small blender. Add enough almond milk to cover the contents of the other ingredients. Blend until desired texture. If the mixture becomes to thick, add more almond milk.

Clearly I could not wait to drink this smoothie!!

Cheers!
