I received a special delivery yesterday…new protein powder! I’ve been using a Vanilla Whey protein powder from Trader’ Joe’s but was just about out. I bought it online from www.muscleandstrength.com and was very pleased with their prices, products, and speed of delivery. (no, no endorsement, just truth).
I got a big tub of Chocolate and PEANUT BUTTER. The stats are awesome on both…no fat, no sugar (sugar free challenge approved!), and 25g of protein all for 110 calories.
Of course I could not WAIT to dig into the peanut butter one. Today after my legs workout I made an extra yummy smoothie…
Peanut Butter Banana Protein Smoothie
In a blender combine:
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond breeze (or just use all water)
- 1 scoop whey peanut butter protein powder
- 1 small banana
- 1 T chia seeds (optional)
- 1 tsp xantham gum (also optional, just makes your smoothies extra fluffy and creamy)
- lots of ice!
Oh baby. I can’t wait to see what other recipes I can come up with for this peanut butter deliciousness!
I also FINALLY GOT MY HAIR DONE. excitement.
I’m no longer blonde! I go to Foilz Hair Studio in Harrisonburg and Leslie did an AMAZING job on an ‘hombre’ color look (dark at the top and lighter at the bottom) to phase me into a darker color.
I love the brown/red color up top and the streaks of blonde still left throughout.
I am loving how dark it is when you put it up in a ponytail too.
The pictures don’t do it justice but you can definitely see the dark in the bottom pic.
If you live in Harrisonburg, definitely hit up Foilz. – their prices are amazing and obviously Leslie does a kick butt job at hair.
Well clearly I’ve had an exciting day. What about you? Anything exciting happen to you today?!
