Winter protein shake recipes

This cold grey winter morning calls for a warm protein shake. No frozen berries and spinach for me today! Two scoops of Arbonne vanilla protein powder, half a banana, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, peanut butter, flax and hemp seeds. As you can see, half gone before I could even snap a photo. A bit like banana bread, only without the bread! Please use caution when adding hot liquid to your blender. I started with a bit of almond milk and hot water, then topped it off with more hot water at the end. Just what we need for our healthy living challenge starting January 4! EnjoyLet’s be real. Sometimes that frozen berry delight doesn’t sound so delightful on a cold, grey winter morning. Sometime we need to change it up a little! Maybe we’re craving a warm afternoon cup of hot cocoa?

Below are a few recipes to ease the winter chill.

 

NOTE! When making warm smoothies, best not to add probiotics to hot beverages (cold or lukewarm is ok).

 

 

Warm Banana Bread Protein Shake

4 oz warm water
2 oz cold water or almond milk
Two scoops of Arbonne vanilla protein powder
1/2 scoop fiber boost
1/2 a banana
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
dash cinnamon
dash nutmeg
dash allspice
1 tbsp nut/seed butter
1.5 tsp each flax, chia and hemp seeds
1 scoop Greens Balance

Blend all ingredients until smooth, then top off with an additional 2-3 ounces of hot water. Always use caution when adding hot water to your blender, as your smoothie could end up all over your kitchen and you.
