Protein Shake To Go!

I don’t know about you but with the colder weather I’m less likely to throw ice into my blender and make one of my favorite protein smoothies- I get so cold!  I still want the protein and nutrition but not the CHILLS.  Below is a super easy, fast, delicious,  and low carb recipe that will help simplify your morning routine.  This is also a great post workout shake you can throw in your gym bag and go!  Click here to see just how easy it is!

What you need:

To do:  You can prepare an entire weeks worth in about 5 minutes.  I suggest doing step 1 & 2 in the evening before bed.

  1.  Decide how many you want to prep- Grab some mason jars.
  2. Pour in each jar:  1 scoop protein powder (approx. 120 calories), 1 scoop Naked Peanut butter powder (50 calories), 1 TBSP chia seeds (60 calories- chia seeds are so good for your digestion and full of nutrition).
  3. Sleep…..zzzzzzzz
  4. Wake and grab 1 prepared jar – fill to top with ice and 1/2 cup milk.
  5. Shake… like crazy.  Make sure you get the powder off the bottom then just shake a little more for good measure.

Thats it!  The chia seeds become gelatinous after sitting for about 10 minutes.  I like this texture but if your not a fan you can omit the chia seeds or drink immediately.  I will be taking this to work  with me through the winter.   Having it ready and cold is perfect after a good workout.  This is also a great afternoon snack or meal replacement.  Total Calories vary but generally it is about 200-300 calories (depends on what protein powder and milk you use) and contains approximately 35 grams of protein.
