Add a Splash of Red or Green to your Protein Shakes

Christmas comes once a year but in July it is fun to celebrate again. This year we broke out the Christmas music, Christmas lights, Jingle Bells, Elf on the Shelf, and of course Christmas cheer. We didn't want to wait another six months and you won't either. 

The Red: Strawberry and Pineapple Protein Shake

  • 1/2 cup strawberries (I used frozen)
  • 1/2 cup pineapple (frozen again)
  • 1 Tablespoon Cashews
  • 1 scoop Vanilla UMP (from Beverly International)
  • 8 ounces water

Blend and enjoy. If you didn't use frozen fruit, add some ice cubes to chill this shake.

The Green: Pistachio Pick Me Up

  • 1 Tablespoon pistachio flavored pudding (sugar free)
  • 1 Tablespoon pistachios
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1/2 banana (frozen if possible)
  • 8 ounces of water
  • 1 scoop Angel Food UMP (from Beverly International)

Blend and enjoy. If you didn't use frozen fruit, add some ice cubes to chill this shake.

Just so you know you can make these protein shakes anytime of the year. These shakes provide one serving of protein and one serving of healthy fats along with a serving of fruit. I bet both of these shakes would taste great using different flavors of protein too. Give it a try and let me know what you came up with. 

Enjoy Good Food and Merry Christmas,

Coach Nancy
