Hi everyone! Yesterday got a little crazy busy and mostly I was exhausted. I actually had half a day off (haha woo, a half!) and that time was spent running errands…don’t you love those days? I found out just how much working all weekend and staying up late watching the olympics is doing to me… I don’t understand why they put the good stuff on SO late..like 10 and 11 o’clock?? what’s up with that NBC??
Anyways- The other day I posted on making a protein smoothie with some pudding so I figured I would tell you the recipe..even tho it was super easy!
- 5 oz milk of choice (I used coconut!)
- 1 cup of Dark Chocolate Sugar Free Pudding
- I scoop Vanilla Protein Powder of Choice (I used the GNC Soy 95)
- 3-4 Ice Cubes
Simple as that! The pudding makes the texture and thickness of this shake is amazing! I swear it was like having a milkshake! and i loveeeee them, so a guilt free version! Also I haven’t tried it yet but I’m sure it would be awesome with any other flavors of pudding. Butterscotch would hit the spot sometimes FO SHO.
I have been having these little babies after my workouts- which surprisingly enough have been in the gym lately! I know what- me in an actually gym- weird. But I have been staying after my work which is conveniently at the gym to do some workouts because I’ve been busy enough all day long I haven’t had any other time! I haven’t been on my bike since Sunday. Miss my babe!
I also did a STELLAR Tabata workout on Monday full of Front Raises, Speed Skater (my glutes still hurt), Front kicks, jack knives…etc. So. SORE.
