Today’s YUMMY TREAT is…

Nope, we aren’t talking about ice cream – it’s protein shakes!

Protein is an essential macronutrient for fitness gains and fat loss; there’s no disputing it. But when you can’t seem to get enough lean protein from real food, a protein shake can be a good substitute.

Not only does a protein shake take only a few minutes to prepare, it keeps you on point with your nutrition while making it easy to avoid unhealthy fast food alternatives for a quick meal.

My favorite recipe is the…

Orange Creamsicle Shake

-1 frozen banana
-½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt
-1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
-1 or 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (check your label for serving size) – also look for WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE when buying protein powder
-handful of ice cubes

BLEND & ENJOY!
