If you were a fly on my wall in the morning, you’d see that it’s really not my best time. I hit snooze until I absolutely have to wake up, I never shower in the morning (always at night) and I’m usually the one running out the door with seconds to spare. It’s always rushed no matter how you spin it, but not a morning goes by where I don’t grab a protein shake for work each day.
Here’s one of the easiest ones I whip up on the mornings I have a few extra moments to spare and on the mornings I don’t? I just grab the ready-to-drink shake and go!
1. EAS AdvantEdge Carb Control in Cafe flavor
2. 1 banana
3. 1/2 cup almond milk
4. 1 tablespoon almond butter
I’ve become a bit of an on-line shopper lately, so I snagged my EAS AdvantEdge protein shakes at Walmart.com. Can’t beat that– it just shows up right at my door.
1. Combine all of the above ingredients in a blender. Add ice if you want it colder.
2. Blend until thoroughly combined.
3. Drink it up!
There are so many ways you can mix up this recipe and so many different ways you can add a little something extra to these shakes. They’re great on their own or as a base for a delicious smoothie! I’m thinking I’ll add raspberries, spinach and blueberries to the vanilla flavor next time!
Mmmm! It’s so delicious. You’ll just have to try it for yourself. I love that it’s packed with protein and nutrients that will leave me feeling full all morning and last me until lunchtime around noon. It’s not loaded with carbs or sugars, either, but instead lightly sweetened with the added almond milk and banana and it still give me the energy I need to make it through my morning. It’s really the perfect get-up-and-go shake, let me tell ya!
What’s your favorite way to jazz up your protein shake in the morning?
