Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is enjoying this heat wave of a weekend. You go, Illinois!
Saturday morning, I attended my first 1.5 hour Computrainer session. I came home from class exhausted. I had tired muscles (and a bruised bum, of course) and knew I needed to give my body some protein if I wanted to survive Sunday’s workouts.
I’ve never been a fan of red meat, and even chicken and turkey are a stretch these days. Protein shakes are a great alternative for those of us that dislike the common sources of protein but l.o.v.e. chocolatey delicious milkshakes. (Everyone?) Without further adieu, I present to you the world’s best protein shake:
- 1 cup Almond Milk; 30 calories
- 1/2 frozen banana; 50 calories
- 6 – 8 ice cubes
- 1 tbsp. peanut butter; 95 calories
- 1 tsp. hershey’s cocoa; 10 calories
- 1/2 -1 scoop chocolate protein; 75 calories (may be more pending your choice of protein)
Total Calories: 260
We found the MuscleTech Phase 8 protein through online reviews. It’s a leaner protein, 1 scoop is 150 calories, and it’s delicious! It’s a generous size scoop, so I tend to only use 1/2 of a scoop. However, I do throw in more after a tough workout.
Once you have all the ingredients, toss them into a blender and mix until the ice cubes and bananas are fully blended. Then enjoy!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! XO
