My tasty protein shake

protein shake

who garnishes a protein shake?

Vic and I run around like crazed lunatics in the morning (a side effect of slapping the snooze button too much), and on top of that,┬áVic isn’t much of a breakfast eater. Breakfast is a pretty important meal as far as nutrition and metabolism goes, so our morning┬ánutrition comes in a convenient, drinkable format.

Tasty Protein Shake
Yield: 1 serving

4-5 frozen strawberries
8oz cool or cold coffee
1TB peanut butter
2TB plain, unsweetened yogurt
splash of milk
1 serving of your favorite protein powder (we use EAS Chocolate or Vanilla)
sweetener to taste (optional)

BLEND! Enjoy.

Tips: Use coffee that is at least lukewarm. Typically I save the coffee I don’t drink in the morning for my protein shakes. Hot coffee has peculiar effects on protein powder. You can substitute a frozen banana or any other frozen fruit for the strawberries, but the frozen fruit helps the shake have more of a milkshake-like consistency.
