Cherry Vanilla Protein Shake

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.


                                                                      Ingredients
   
                                                    1/2 scoop Vanilla Whey protein powder
                                                    1/2 banana
                                                    1/4 cup cottage cheese
                                                    1 cup frozen cherries
                                                    1 cup fat free milk
                                                    1 packet of stevia
                                                     handful of ice

                                              Blend all ingredients together and serve



                                                   Nutrition (for the whole shake)
                                                 
                                                             356 Cals.
                                                             5g  Fat
                                                             26g Protein
                                                             50g Carbs.

  5. I just bought some cottage cheese with the intention of eating it for a healthy snack. After almost puking, I decided I should figure out a new way to eat it. Maybe I will try this shake!

  10. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You definitely know what youre
    talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when
    you could be giving us something informative to read?

  11. Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand so
    much about this, such as you wrote the book in it
    or something. I think that you simply can do with some % to pressure the message house a little bit, but instead of that, that is wonderful blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.

  14. I don't want to sound like I'm ripping on the Eden - PURE,
    but the couple of opinions I had been able to get and read weren't really encouraging or positive. It is a lovely room but it gets very cold in the winter. Are you thinking about building or remodeling your home but want to do it in an environmentally friendly way.

  15. The Crock-Pot Duo is perfect for entertaining and having the two slow cookers that adjust independently of each other.

    You would never dream of leaving something cooking on your stove-top all day while you were at work, but the slow cooker
    enables just that. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is still interested
    in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product.

  16. So one definite advantage of the Sinus - Aero system is that, your portable
    nebulizer comes with liquid medications (as prescribed by your physician) made by a trusted
    sinus compounding pharmacy. Since on his days off we're blowing out sprinkler systems for the winter (I am master of the sprinkler clocks, and can program nearly any style of clock available- yay me), we have access to a giant, powerful air compressor that he hitches onto the back of his POS pickup while we drive around town. Tires are often inflated by the use of air compressors, and certain tools, like nail guns, are also fed by compressed air.

  27. Currently it seems like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

  28. Like its said first impression is the last impression, clothes are an important depiction of your personality as they brief about your likes within a jiffy.
    moms sometimes find it hard to feed their baby, how much more if they
    have two to feed. Giving a name to baby is an important decision taken by parents, they choose a
    name which is cute and totally go with the cute little creature of
    their family. Why not consider getting creative and personalizing your gifts.
