Perfect Protein Shake

Happy National Running Day!

Thank goodness it was sunny today.  I’ve never been one of those run-in-the-rain people.  Cold, heavy, and clingly clothes just aren’t really my thing, you know?

Anyway, I got in a nice and short 23 minute run around my neighborhood and then did some free weights and abs.  I was still really sore from by barsculpt class yesterday, though.  Hopefully my legs have loosened up by tomorrow!

After my workout I relaxed with this smoothie/protein shake.  I’ve been drinking a mix of these ingredients after almost every workout for the past month or so.  Here’s my latest combination:

In a blender, combine:

1/2 banana, frozen

1 T ground flax seed

1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder

1 serving silken tofu (between 1/2 and 3/4 cup…I use “lite”)

3/4 cup cold water

1 T peanut butter

Blend until all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.  Serve immediately or refrigerate.
