Chocolate Hazelnut Protein Coffee

Chocolate Hazelnut Protein Coffee

  A couple weeks ago I started a new pre and post-workout strategy. Something basic, something simply and something I don’t have to think about too much each day. Pre-workout: Strength Days: Protein shake with UCAN (sometimes some fruit too) Cardio Days: Protein Coffee (like this chocolate […]

Strawberry Banana Coconut Avocado Protein Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Coconut Avocado Protein Smoothie

It’s summertime which means I enjoy particular summer flavors of things. I love eating for the season for several reasons: First reason is because I buy what’s in season (sales!). Second reason is there is some sort of comfort about eating particular foods in certain weather. Curling […]

Peanut Butter Banana & Prune Protein Shake

Peanut Butter Banana & Prune Protein Shake

It’s peanut butter and jelly in milkshake form. Two of your favorite childhood foods, right? This protein shake has tons of carbs to replenish your glycogen stores after a hard resistance workout. It also uses prunes to aid digestion because if you’re like me…you need em. […]

Chocolate Banana Avocado Smoothie Bowl

Chocolate Banana Avocado Smoothie Bowl

So I have posted my fair share of smoothie bowls and smoothies and of course…they all have protein powder in them. We know how much I love using protein powder as my sweets fix. However, since upping my FAT intake, decreasing carbs, and focusing on […]

Salted Caramel Mocha Latte Protein Shake

Salted Caramel Mocha Latte Protein Shake

Another coffee flavor recipe. Ironic because for the past week I have been cutting back caffeine. There’s always decaf though. This recipe was good except I probably added too much salt to mine so go easy on it. It’s just coffee, chocolate protein powder, caramel extract […]

Caramel Coconut Mocha Protein Shake

Caramel Coconut Mocha Protein Shake

I’m updating this post about a year later because originally it was made with Shakeology. However, after I left the Beachbody world, I no long drank Shakeology because that felt like putting some dollar bills into a blender daily. Not to say any quality protein […]

Tiramasu Protein Shake

Tiramasu Protein Shake

This one was kind of a stroke of genius. I think I was trying to come up with a Shakeology recipe back in my (somewhat regrettable) Beachbody days. A lot of times I get inspiration by just thinking of desserts I can mimic. One night […]

Banana and Pumpkin Green Smoothie Bowl

Banana and Pumpkin Green Smoothie Bowl

Avocado + pumpkin + banana? Weird right? Oddly delicious though. Let me tell you about it: It was the beginning of pumpkin season, the loveliest season of all, and I was putting pumpkin in everything. Still am honestly. It was still warm outside at this point though. […]

Sweet Potato Pie Protein Shake

Sweet Potato Pie Protein Shake

This was inspired by Bodybuilding.com however I definitely changed the recipe a bit. Theirs just called for chocolate protein powder and water with some added sweetener. Mine ended up a little different because I wanted it to taste more like sweet potato casserole or pumpkin pie […]

Pumpkin Spice Latté Protein Shake

Pumpkin Spice Latté Protein Shake

It’s pumpkin season AND it’s been a while since I posted a good protein shake recipe. This one is awesome because well…it’s coffee and pumpkin and protein powder so how could it not be? I love this pumkin spice latté flavor for right before or even after […]
