Triple Berry Crisp Protein Shake

Are you a breakfast eater? I really try to be but it’s just not my favorite. Actually, I love breakfast food, but I will just have breakfast for dinner if I miss it. HAHA.

So when I do eat breakfast, it’s sometimes leftovers (maybe even dinner LOL) and other times, a protein shake. You never know with me.

But yummmmmm. I cannot get over how delicious this is! The berries combine with oats, cinnamon, and almond milk and it tastes like a cold, liquid berry crisp.

  • 1/4 cup gluten-free oats

Just blend together and serve. Mmm, so good. How often are you enjoying protein shakes?

Banana Bread Protein Shake

This shake is a cold, creamy version of the soft and sweet banana bread we all know and love. It’s really easy to make and you probably have everything you need to make it in the kitchen right now. What’s not to love?

Blueberry Pie Protein Shake

Whether you like it or not, we should all be eating breakfast. I never liked to, and still don’t, really, but I’ve made a point to eat something by 10am each day. (I took a body test and part of it tested my resting metabolic rate, which came back low. I needed to eat more or at least more often.)

Another thing about breakfast is, I don’t always have or make time to cook it. Isn’t that the truth, I mean how much busier could life get most of the time? So, quick and easy breakfasts are usually my go-to, things like a banana or a Larabar.

Another fast yet healthy option is a protein shake. These are a staple in my house and this kind is my husband’s favorite. He’s always a blueberry fan and the cinnamon and vanilla almond milk combine perfectly for that “pie” taste.

Blueberry Pie Protein Shake2763

  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries, frozen
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix everything together in a blender and serve.
