Protein is key for our diets especially if we work out. It’s essential for the development of our muscles. Our muscles work hard for us-burning calories & keeping our metabolism up. If we don’t eat enough protein our bodies steal it from our muscles and organs. It curbs our appetite & balances blood sugar. When you eat more protein you feel fuller longer & you have more energy.

1 cup of frozen strawberries
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
1 cup of greek yogurt
1/4 cup milk (unsweetened coconut or almond)
5-10 drops vanilla cream stevia (optional)
Combine yogurt, milk and protein powder in a blender and blend until well combined.  Add in strawberries and blend until you have a nice thick and creamy smoothie.  Enjoy!

    so what do I need to look for in vanilla protein powder and which protein powders should I stay away from? Now when I have a protein shake does that come off my daily calories? because protein shakes are high in calories aren’t they?
