Happy Thursday, everyone! Quick announcement before I get to the good stuff: I unfortunately won’t have Internet access tonight – but hopefully what’s below will help make up for that!
I’ve been blending up some new drinks in my Vitamix and thought it appropriate to keep you “posted” (ha, get it?) on what I’ve come up with. Enjoy!
Bender’s Blenders: The Vanillabutter Whey
An alternative to The Choconana Whey, this protein-packed shake combines the flavors of vanilla and peanut, with a hint of chocolate frozen yogurt to feel completely indulgent! Perfect after an intense workout, or anytime you’re feeling the need to spruce up your average dessert bowl!
Ingredients (serves 1):
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I like Almond Breeze)
- 1 scoops (approximately 1/2 oz.) vanilla protein powder (I used Biochem)
- 1/2 tbsp. peanut butter
- 1/4 cup chocolate frozen yogurt (I like Stonyfield)
- 5 ice cubes
- Optional: Reddi-Whip topping
Combine ingredients and blend until smooth. Add whipped topping if desired, and enjoy!
