Thirsty Thursday! PROTEIN

Some like it hot and some like it cold, but when it comes to protein there is no need to let it get old….did you see what I did there? So full of talent ;)

Adding protein into your diet in the form of powder is one of the most efficient ways to get the protein your muscles need without all the excess fat and calories. However, a scoop of protein in water can get a little boring. HERE are my 2 latest obsessions to go with whatever mood you may be in today:

Protein Coffee:

I could drink this ALL day as it makes my coffee super creamy. Plus, I don’t need to use any sweetener or cream (yeah, I dig that stuff) and it tastes better than any Starbucks. AND…it’s super simple.

Brew 1 cup coffee of choice and pour into shaker cup

Add in 1 scoop whey protein of choice (I am actually OBSESSED with BSN Syntha-6 blend in chocolate peanut butter right now)

Shake the heck out of it

Pour back into your mug and add a little hot water

Sip while reading up on the latest research! Oh, wait that may just be me…sip while doing what you do best!

Protein Ice Cream Dream:

This is great for post-workout on a super hot day, OR for you weirdos who enjoy ice cream on cold nights :)

6 oz low-sugar almond milk

4 oz non-fat Greek yogurt

1 scoop casein protein (again, I am obsessed with BSN Syntha-6 blend in peanut butter cookie for this one)

1 tablespoon all natural peanut or almond butter

1 zucchini, peeled and chopped (yeah, just do it)

Mix it all in a blender

Transfer to your ice cream machine and let it whirl around for about 15 minutes.

Don’t have an ice cream machine?

Place it in a tight closing container and put it in the freezer for a couple of hours.

YUM! BTW, this is 2 servings….or 1 on leg day :)

So, there’s 2 ways to get your muscle on without the BULK you don’t want. Remember, eat clean, keep your proteins lean, and train mean….then return the favor by being kind to others!

Peace, Love and Lunges,
