Pick-me-up Protein Smoothie
If you’re anything like me and have a big sweet tooth, you are digging every corner of your house looking for something sugary and sweet in the afternoon as a pick-me-up. Most times I will allow myself a treat. But today, after realizing that the scale is not working to my favor recently (damn thing must be broken 😉 ), and after a super hard workout at the gym, I decided to be good. So I satisfied that sweet tooth without going crazy on carbs with a healthy chocolate protein shake.
1. 1 cup of unsweetened Almond Milk
2. Half a cup of ice
3. 2 scoops of Organic Protein (I got this from Costco)
4. A teaspoon of Chia seeds (again, purchased from Costco)
5. A sprinkle of Goji berries on top
Blend ingredients 1-4 and sprinkle with Goji Berries and enjoy (Noosheh jan konid)! I usually add a handful of spinach as well, but I forgot today 🙂
