Snickerdoodle Protein Shake


So my trainer is always giving me a friendly reminder about getting some protein in (15-20 grams) after I lift weights. I admit I am sometimes a slacker about it. Partly because I am not that fond of protein powder mixed with random beverages. Yuck. Also, sometimes I am just not hungry or so hungry that I want something more "real". However, I am trying to be better about it. I have tried different types of protein including pea, hemp, and rice. I am also trying to jazz up the protein shakes so that they are a little more appealing. I found this recipe and modified it slightly. I also used my new rice protein in it, which is definitely my favorite out of the three types of protein I have experimented with. This shake was really good and I am already thinking I might want it again for breakfast tomorrow.

Adapted from this recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 scoop of protein powder of choice ( I used Sunwarrior classic protein in vanilla)
  2. 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  3. 1 tsp of vanilla
  4. 1 tsp of cinnamon
  5. 1 Tablespoon of flax seeds
  6. 1 heaping Tablespoon of peanut butter or sunbutter
  7. 1 cup of ice cubes
  8. 1 stevia packet (only use if protein powder has no sweetener)

Method

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy immediately.
