High Protein Holiday Shakes

Happy Wild Workout Wednesday!  Every week I link up with Annmarie from The Fit Foodie Mama, Michelle from Fruition Fitness and Nicole from Fitful Focus to bring you fitness and healthy living posts.  If you have a post to share we would love to have you join us in the link up fun, if not grab your coffee, protein shake or water and get ready for some great fitness and healthy living motivation!

So far being a Premier Protein Trainer Ambassador is so much fun!  I have received some awesome swag and product to share with clients, friends and family.  Everyone who tries them really loves them.  The protein and fiber bars are so yummy!  I am a chocolate lover, so the chocolate bars really satisfy my sweet tooth.  The cookies and cream fiber bar is my favorite so far, plus I love that they have 7g of fiber and 15 g of protein, I always have one in my purse.  I also really love how convenient the pre-made shakes are, when I am pressed for time I grab one instead of making one of my own, they only have 160 calories and have 30g of protein!  I will be doing a giveaway on Instagram this week, be sure to follow me on Instagram for your chance to win.  Here is a little peek into what I am giving away:

Now that the holidays are upon us and we are craving all the sweets that come along with the celebrations I want to share two recipes for High Protein Holiday Shakes that satisfy your sweet tooth!  The first is one that I came up with.  The Chocolate Candy Cane Protein Shake, because I need a healthy alternative to my favorite coffee shop peppermint mocha!  This shake gives you the same flavors, but without all the sugar, and it packs a protein punch.  I make this before I head out for my holiday shopping and it keeps me satisfied so I don't splurge when I am out and about!  If you love chocolate and peppermint, this shake is for you.  It is simple and you only need a few ingredients.

Chocolate Candy Cane Protein Shake
1 Premier Protein 11oz chocolate shake
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
1 tsp crushed candy cane (for topping, optional)

Blend protein, ice, cocoa powder and peppermint extract in Nutri-bullet or blender and mix until smooth, pour into glass and top with crushed candy cane.  Enjoy!

The next recipe is from Premier Protein.  It is the Protein Packed Sugar Cookie Shake.  My husband loves sugar cookies so I know that this will be a winner for him this holiday season.

Sugar Cookie Protein Shake
1 Premier Protein 11oz Vanilla Shake
1 tbsp almond flour
1 tsp honey
½ banana
Blend until smoothie and enjoy!
