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.

Winter was hooked on hockey by age 6, when she first witnessed a bench clearing brawl between the Boston Bruins and the Ottawa Senators. Growing from hockey fan to hockey player, Winter followed her passions by founding The Pink Puck. While she also loves fashion and the outdoors, hockey will always be her center ice.
