Orange-Vanilla Protein Shake

fullsizerender-2

This protein shake has been my go-to post-workout meal for the past couple weeks. I get extremely tired of the same chocolate shake everyday, so I like to mix it up and try to load as many macros into one simple drink so I’m not sitting there eating a huge meal right after I workout.

This shake is well-balanced even if you aren’t counting macros and makes for a delicious snack or replacement meal. If you want to learn about counting macros, or learn what on earth I’m talking about, check out this post.


Orange-Vanilla Protein Shake


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup frozen peaches
  • 1/4 cup pineapple
  • 2-3 baby carrots
  • 1/4 banana
  • 1 T. honey
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients into a blender and enjoy! If you want a thicker consistency, use frozen pineapple and/or frozen banana slices (I like to slice up bananas when they’re getting a little too ripe for my taste buds and throw them on a cookie sheet in the freezer)
