Quick and Delicious Smoothies!

I am so excited that it’s Friday because while it’s been a good week overall, I’m looking forward to the weekend! With meal prepping, it’s safe to say I have food always ready. However, if I’m just not feeling it one day, I whip up a quick and delicious smoothie! By packing these smoothies with a bunch of goodies, I’m guaranteed to get my daily nutrients.

Quick and Delicious Smoothies

These smoothies can be made any time of day but I tend to have these in the morning. I like to use Unico Nutrition protein but you can use whatever Vanilla protein you like to use! Also, by clicking that link I do receive a small portion of commission. However, I completely stand by these protein products!

Green Protein Smoothie:
  • 1 tsp of spirulina
  • 1 scoop of protein
  • 1 cup of cashew milk
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 scoop of collagen peptides (optional)

Toss all these ingredients in the blender and enjoy! The reason this is such a good smoothie for a breakfast is the star ingredient: spirulina. It turns your smoothie a pretty green flavor but you can’t really taste it. It keeps you satiated for a good part of your day. I like to add collagen peptides in my smoothies to help my joints after long runs or harder workouts.

Berry Delicious Smoothie:
  • 1 scoop of protein
  • 1 cup of cashew milk
  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries or strawberries
  • 1/4 cup frozen cauliflower rice
  • 1 scoop of collagen peptides (optional)

Blend and enjoy! This smoothie is another of my favorites after a hot workout. The blueberries are just the right amount of sweetness after a workout. By adding the cauliflower rice, you get a thicker shake and an extra serving of veggies!

Ranch Chili Recipe!

Now that the cold weather is hitting a lot of people, it’s time to bring out all the soups, stews, and chili recipes! I absolutely love thick and heart chili at the end of the day when the weather is cold. Texas winters are usually rainy as well so I feel like this recipe just hits the spot after running in from a cold shower.  Now there is some ranch in this but try it before turning your nose at it! It’s a very subtle flavor and it’s so good. Plus it’s the powder and not the regular dressing so it’s less weird. haha!

You can also throw this in a crockpot and make it your own!
