I’ve gotten really into lifting heavy weights lately. I’m finding that it’s making the most difference in shedding my baby weight. Of course any weightlifting routine means an increase in protein, which can be problematic if you’re a vegetarian like myself. This shake is not only high in protein and vegan. It’s the perfect pre-workout shake!
In a blender combine:
1.5 tsp. Trader Joe’s Pure Bourbon Vanilla Extract
1 c. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 scoop Trader Joe’s Vanilla Protein Powder
Blend it up and enjoy either before or after a hard workout! I added a packet of Stevia to my shake because I have a sweet tooth, but it’s not necessary. The Bourbon Vanilla tastes amazing in cookies and I used it in Adam’s Birthday cake icing. It’s good stuff!
