What is the one smell or flavor that reminds you of summer? For me it's coconut, hands down. I'm a huge fan of coconut lotion, coconut smelling sun tan lotion, and coconut milk, ice cream, yogurt, shredded pieces... basically all things coconut, especially in the summer. When my favorite protein powder brand - Perfect Fit - came out with a limited edition coconut flavored protein powder, I knew I needed to get my hands on it, especially after hearing all of the amazing reviews on it. Summer in a container? I'll take 5 - thanks! I haven't made a healthy-fied, piña colada, but you better believe that will be next on my list. Instead, I looked in my freezer for the fruit that would pair well together in a blender, and went for it! It turned out to taste INCREDIBLE.
I usually make these before my workout, and leave them in the fridge, whether I'm at the gym or at home. Knowing I have a protein shake waiting for me, makes me push that much harder during my workout. I know it'll be worth it when I finish and get to enjoy it! This shake was more like a protein smoothie, with all it's frozen fruit in it, but you can absolutely use fresh if that's what you have on hand!
What's your favorite fruit in the summer?
I want to make more incredible protein shakes for you!
