Just about every day I drink a protein shake to insure that I get enough protein. I lift heavy and train often with my workouts so I could always use the extra protein. I do a lot of experimenting with my protein shakes by adding different ingredients into my protein powders because I think Whey protein powder tastes pretty gross by just adding water. I seriously can't stomach it! Shakes are one of my very favorite frozen treats. Nothing like a good strawberry or chocolate shake from In-N-Out Burgers! But at 680 calories and 37 grams of fat I will pass for one of my own! These protein shakes satisfy me just the same and in fact I now prefer them because of the nutritional benefits.
I have really grown to love frozen cherries. Not only are they great in smoothies and shakes but they also make a great healthy treat just eating them by themselves.
1/2 scoop Vanilla Whey protein powder
1/4 cup cottage cheese
1 cup frozen cherries
