Strawberry Oat Protein Shake

I did it. I finally caved in and bought a bag of protein. Waitressing is no joke! I must walk 3-4 miles every shift, and I always come home exhausted. My eating schedule is completely askew because I always have to make the decision to either eat dinner at 4pm or at 12am. So to remedy all these problems, I bought a bag of protein. Optimum double chocolate, nonetheless! 

Protein is great for muscle recovery, muscle building, and satiety. And because it's peak of strawberry season here in Louisiana, I obviously went wild with my magic bullet and blended together some fresh strawberries, oats, a dash of milk, and half a scoop of protein (12gm). I wasn't expecting much, but wow am I a natural at making protein shakes. This tasted like straight strawberry milk! I've already had it way too many times this week to hold me over between meals or as a late night post-work drink. It's just so delicious!

  1. Funny enough, when I used to work out a lot, this was the only thing I'd ever have for breakfast XD Sometimes I'd add a banana, or something of that sort. But its sooooo healthy! I loved it~! Especially with Rice milk (totally my favorite ^__^)
