Protein Shakes

I thought I’d share a few of my favorite protein shake combos! This is my go-to breakfast after a hard morning workout. I try to mix it up so that even if I’m always drinking a shake, I’m getting a variety of nutrients in my shake each day. Here’s an example of what a typical week might look like…hopefully it gives you some ideas of your own!

Monday: Chocolate Shake
Tuesday: Very Berry
Wednesday: Mint Chocolate
Thursday: Strawberry Vanilla
  • 1 c. unsweetened almond milk
  • 5 frozen strawberries
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 scoop of vanilla Thorne Protein Powder
Friday: Very Banana

+I always use a frozen banana because I like the taste and consistency of the shake better. In addition, it helps make the shake cold and takes away the need to add any ice cubes. I freeze my bananas in halves. So I peel the banana, break it in half, and stick in a quart size Ziploc bag. I’ll add however many banana halves fit into the bag, then put it in the freezer. When I make my shake, I put in two frozen banana halves

*The leafy green I use depends what I have in my house. It usually varies between spinach, kale, and mixed greens. I’ll buy a big package at the grocery store, and just grab a handful out of the fridge. If the container is getting close to the expiration date or starting to look a little wilted, I stick it in the freezer. The leaves freeze great, and then I just grab a handful out of the freezer and I’m never wasting my greens!
