Cherries Jubilee Post- Workout Smoothie

I have a new favorite post workout smoothie that I want to share with you. I have named it “Cherries Jubilee” because it tastes exactly like my favorite Baskin Robbins ice cream that I used to get when I was a kid – but it’s better! This is a dairy free, gluten free, protein packed treat that I look forward to after a workout. Give it a try!

Vega is a plant based protein and is very gentle on the digestive system unlike dairy based proteins. You can get it at your local whole foods, or if you don’t have one close by you can order it here.
