Hi, my name is Winter and I’m a smoothie-aholic. Drinking home made smoothies before heading to the rink is a must, since the smoothie isn’t too heavy, I don’t feel sick when I take the ice. But sometimes you’re working out and want to have a meal or snack that doesn’t come in liquid form, but still packs the protein powder punch! Here are a few quick and easy recipes that use protein powder. http://www.livestrong.com/slideshow/556857-20-delicious-protein-powder-recipes-that-are-not-shakes/?utm_source=articlebottom&utm_medium=1#slide-1
If you still want to take the smoothie route, here is one of my favorites!
1 c. Almond, Coconut, Rice or Dairy Milk
1/2 Frozen Banana (Tip: Buy a bunch of bananas, peel, cut in 1/2 and freeze wrapped in saran wrap. It’s MUCH cheaper than buying frozen bananas at the store.)
3 Frozen Strawberries
1-2 tbsp Protein Power (Hemp or rice is the best!)
2 tsp. Agave syrup
1 tbsp Peanut Butter
Handful of mixed greens- I’ve thrown lettuce, Spinach, Wheatgrass, etc into the blender on any given day, use all or 1!
Blend on high 45-60 seconds, or until smooth. It’s a great way to start the day, or a nice snack mid day.
