God I hate taking pictures at night. If you look closely you can see my reflection in the glass taking the picture! Anyway, protein drinks have made a reappearance in my life once again. P90x is going good (for day 3 hahaha). In their meal plan, they include a recovery drink (which you can, of course, buy from them) but I just make my own. Theirs has whey protein in it anyway. I've started using water instead of juice this time around, but I've found it wasn't sweet enough, so add a little agave and cinnamon to give it some flavor and sweetness. I'm going to get stevia one of these days I swear! Here's the recipe for my P90x recovery drink:
- 8 oz water
- 2 scoops of Biochem's 100% Vegan Protein Powder - Vanilla
- 2 tbsp of Nutribiotic's Rice Protein - Vanilla or Plain
- 1 scoop of Macro Greens
- 1 cup of frozen mixed berries
- 1 tsp of L-Glutamine
- 1 tsp of Creatine
- 1/2 tbsp agave nectar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Just throw everything in the blender and blend it! I usually put in the water first and then all the powders and then blend that. Then add the berries, agave, and cinnamon and do a second blend.
Also, I was inspired by my friend Viv from Adventures of Veganism in Midwestern America to post pictures of my Goodwill Gold. I went the other day and found some really great stuff. Can you believe I got all of that for $30? Oh, I just realized I forgot to take a picture of the beautiful Dutch Oven I got too! I'll have to post a picture of that later. I got the mason jars to put the broth in that I'll be making soon (also inspired by Viv) and the big white Tupperware container is my new freezer container (also inspired by Viv...read her post here). I'm excited to make mini muffins or cupcakes with my new muffin pan! And I have a great refined-sugar free Bundt cake recipe I hope to do soon!
Thanks everybody! Enjoy your smoothies!
