Turn your favorite chai tea drink into a healthy protein shake.
It's the weekend… and I decided to do a 3 day cleanse. Bad Idea.
I haven't done a refresh, or cleanse if you will, in a long time and I figured it was time. Plus, I'm heading to coach summit in less than a month and I wanted a boost in my fitness results and to help clean up my nutrition lately that has been horrible. My original though process was,”Well, the hubby isn't going to be home all weekend or for the rest of the week so I'll go ahead and do it now.” It's much easier to complete a cleanse when the husband isn't around and all you have to do is feed the kiddos. Just make some dinner for them and then drink my shake and eat my dinner. Simple.
Well, I don't do very well on cleanses. I begin to crave everything that I am not supposed to have and then feel the need to eat it all until I am bloated beyond words. Why is that?
But I'm holding strong… it's only the start of day 2 of 3… and I'm doing pretty well. So I figured today I would share with you one of my favorite new protein smoothie recipes, since that is basically what I have been drinking all day yesterday and today.
My Vanilla Chai Protein Smoothie. It's made from the Chai concentrate that I made a little while back and tastes just like a frozen chai tea latte! Of course, if you do not have chai concentrate or do not want to make it, you can just use a regular chai tea bag and steep it according to package directions before adding it to the smoothie.
Vanilla Chai Protein Shake
- Add all ingredients to blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes or until desired consistency is reached.
- If your smoothie is too thick, add a little more milk or water.
