As you know I love my protein shakes in the morning after my workout. I make them right before I leave for work and drink it on the drive in. I normally have the shake 30-40 minutes after I am done working out which is perfect timing.
I have decided to try to cut some peanut butter from my diet. I love peanut butter to the moon and back. I am not cutting it out entirely, just trying to take out a serving or two a day. Some days I have A LOT of peanut butter.
I thought I would try something different with my shake. I started making banana, blueberry, spinach shakes. It is not the same as a chunky monkey, but it still gets the job done.
I like to do whatever I can in advance to make less hassle in the mornings. I prep my smoothie mix on Sundays, so I just have to grab a bag and add powder.
For this shake I have: banana, blueberries and spinach in the freezer bag. I put my milk in first, then the frozen items. I add some flax-seed and my protein and then blend.
I don’t use ice because my frozen banana will make it cold and thicken it up for me.
Make it a great day!
