Before a couple months ago, I had never had a protein or meal replacement shake before. I had never bought the protein powders or other replacement powders and going into a GNC just seemed like something that I would never have a reason to do.
I paid little attention to health or my diet, and the result was a sluggish attitude and clothes that kept shrinking (really, it was a waistline that was expanding but I told myself the clothes were the culprit).
Today I seriously get excited for my lunch of Shakeology and I love learning about nutrition and health! A while back a friend from work let me try the protein shake that she'll sometimes bring it. I'll be honest, I was skeptical that it would taste like anything pleasant. I was so surprised when it actually tasted really good!! The recipe is below - try it out and let me know what you think!
I definitely would not have this every day - there's quite a few calories in it and it's extremely filling, but on a day when I know I'm going to be running around a lot this is a great thing to pack because it's so easy! I like to freeze mine so it can thaw while I'm running around so by the time I'm hungry it's a perfect milkshake consistency! This plus my Shakeology and I'm a happy, healthy & non-hungry girl on those busy days!
In a blender, combine the following ingredients and blend until smooth:
6 ice cubes
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup juice (whichever kind you prefer!)
1 6oz container yogurt (again, whichever you prefer!)
1 scoop protein powder (I like the vanilla, but it's really whichever you prefer - surprise!)
1 handful spinach
1 cup frozen fruit
I pour all mine in a shaker cup from GNC and stick it in the freezer until I'm ready to go - it's perfect!
Let me know what you think if you try it!
