Protein Smoothie with Almond Fresh Vanilla & Peanut Butter
I have tried to drink protein shakes in the past and could never get past their chalky and odd taste. I wanted to give it another try as I am trying to increase my protein intake but I had to change the way I was making them as.
I was on Facebook when I saw this awesome looking recipe from Almond Fresh (link to their original post can be found here) but I did not have fresh banana’s or their original brand in my fridge, so I made my own little twist on it and it was DIVINE! It honestly tastes like a Reese’s Pieces!. It went down so well and it filled me up for the whole morning (still had a small healthy snack before lunch).
Here is what I did:
– 1 scoop of Whey Protein powder (triple chocolate)
– 1 cup of Vanilla Almond Fresh
– 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
– 3 ice cubes

2). Pour into a glass and enjoy!
So simple right?!! And absolutely delicious!
I worked out the basic nutritional facts on it and here they are:
