MY CHOICES

Nutrition: Nutrishop Protein Powder: Hydro-Pro Fruit: Kroger Spinach: Kroger Milk: Unsweetened Vanilla Cashew Milk

So lately I have been on a protein smoothie kick! I know what you’re thinking, “a smoothie recipe, really?” but there is more to this recipe than just mixing fruit! I am very stomach sensitive to protein, so I wanted to share this for those who can’t just mix up any ole smoothie and drink it!

First, lets talk about my protein choice! I chose Hydro-Pro Advanced Hydrolyzed-Isolate Whey Protein Formula. To be honest, a good friend recommended this to me when I told him I have a hard time with protein! I wanted something with a great flavor, that mixed well with a smoothie and he didn’t disappoint by recommending this one. It has zero fat, zero sugar, super low carbs, and is gluten free! Its really a great choice for mixing in a smoothie. I love the vanilla flavor on this one, it tastes like you’re mixing in vanilla yogurt!

For fruit, its really your choice! I chose blueberries, strawberries, and bananas! Really you can mix in your favorites, but I love the simplicity of a berry and banana mix! Can’t go wrong with a classic! I also mixed in a giant handful of spinach! Spinach is full of vitamins, and its pretty undetectable mixed in the smoothie. Tons of benefits, with no added taste.

I have recently started to use cashew milk in my shakes and smoothies! It was recommended to me by a personal trainer friend of mine (Giovanni Training). It has a little less calories than almond milk, and is a little more filling! Same wonderful nutty taste. I really enjoy it.

Blend everything together and enjoy!

One tip: I do recommend adding the protein in very last. Blend everything, add your scoop of protein, and blend again. I have noticed if you mix the protein in right away it froths up and doubles the smoothie in size!

I threw mine in one of my Nutrishop blender cups and took it with me to run errands! A great on the go, post workout smoothie!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

OUTFIT DETAILS

JACKET: House of CB (similar) TOP: Three Dot Leggings: Spanx SHOES: Sam Edelman WATCH: Rockwell Watches HANDBAG: Chanel

So every now and then I feel like being a little extra! I am obsessed with this faux fur coat from House of CB. It is no longer available but I included a link to one that is similar! I love taking an all black outfit, and adding a statement piece to it!

If you want a slimming black outfit for under your heavy coats, try wearing a body suit and a great pair of leggings. My bodysuit is a thin black tissue tee material made by Three Dot that is perfect with everything, and my leggings are faux leather moto leggings by Spanx. THESE ARE MY ALL TIME FAVORITE LEGGINGS! I am so impressed by the Spanx leggings. I have multiple pairs in multiple styles. I highly recommend them!

What I love about this look is I can really change it to go with any jacket! I can be extra with fur, funky with leather, or just simple with a pea coat. I truly love an all black look with just a little something extra.
