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!

My New Favorite Protein Shaker

Looking for a quick protein shake solution? When it comes to consuming protein shakes day after day lets face it, sometimes you just don’t have time to get out the blender. While I was at a supplement store with one of my San Diego personal training clients, I found the most genius shaker bottle invention ever.

It’s called the Blender Bottle. This bottle has a wire whisk to blend your ingredients smooth. If you’ve ever tried to mix protein powder in water, you know how impossible it is to get rid of the lumps. This bottle does it all for you.

You can find these at your local vitamin store.
