Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake

17 Apr

Another delicious, healthy shake. I love them. It’s my favorite part about working out, knowing that I get to have something like this after! Or, sometimes as my dessert at night I fix one too, as it tastes just like a good ole’ milkshake!

I experiment with all different kinds of flavors as I have one almost every day. Maybe a little shake obsessed? Well when it’s high-protein, all around healthy, yet absolutely delicious, why not be?!

Call it a smoothie and have it for breakfast, call it a post-workout shake and have it after time at the gym, or call it a milkshake and have it for dessert! It’s so versatile. You can add more carbs and calories if needed to refuel or wanting it to be a little richer as a dessert, or you can make it lighter to have as a quick breakfast on the go! Either way, you won’t be sorry you made it:)

Today, I made this after a morning workout. Yes it was in the morning, but yes, I was craving something chocolate and sweet! So I made this :)

Chocolate. Peanut Butter. Touch of Coconut on top. What more could you ask for?!

Cleansing Green Juice

1 Apr

Stuffed from that big Easter meal yesterday? Feeling sick from all of that chocolate and candy the bunny brought?

Well I have the drink for you! Whenever I wake up feeling heavy, dehydrated, or just plain icky..I start my day off with this boy. It is so refreshing and will make you feel so cleansed:)

You can even make it ahead of time at night and store it in jars for the morning like I did! Even if you aren’t one of those people into “juicing or any of that green stuff”, I promise you that you will enjoy this one! Try it :)

Cleansing Green Juice
-1 apple, diced small
-1 or 2 cups spinach/kale mix
-small piece of fresh ginger
-filtered water
-sweeten with a packet of stevia if desired!
Directions: Place apple, greens, and ginger in blender. Fill with filtered water to cover all the ingredients. Blend! Sweeten with stevia or add a touch of seasoning to taste!

**Note: You may ask, isn’t juice not suppose to have all the fruit and vegetable blended into it? But this juice does! I love blending the entire part of the apple and greens into it, because then you not only get a lot of the benefits of the juice, but also all the good fiber from the fruits themselves! It’s a pulpy drink, but so yummy!
