I am SOOOOO happy it is Friday! I fully intend to enjoy every moment of this weekend because it turns out next week is going to be another busy one.
This morning started with a 150 blood sugar- better than yesterday but so not where I want to be. Then I did this workout again. I love it – its short, works everything and you get sweaty!
Next I made the best protein shake ever lol. Seriously this is one of my fav’s – and I make a lot of protein shakes. It was sweet, creamy, cake batter awesomeness.
What made it so special? I used Figs to sweeten it instead of the same old banana. I was lucky enough to have some figs left over from a frozen bag I bought from Trader Joe’s a while back. Unfortunately they discontinued them though. However, since it is the season for figs just buy them, wait till they are soft and rip then freeze them. They make your shake so sweet and delicious. It will taste like cake batter. I asked Brian to taste to make sure it wasn’t just me and he agreed – it tastes like cake batter – so yummy! Here is the recipe I used:
Fig Cake Batter Protein Shake
1 Cup Almond or Coconut Milk
1 Scoop Protein Powder (I use Tera’s)
1 TBSP Heavy Cream
2 TBSP Cookie dough Torani syrup (or sweetener of choice, I had this on hand and it gives it more of a desert, cake taste)
1 TBSP Walnuts
1/2 TBSP Chia Seeds
2 Large Figs
My total was: 360cals/29carbs
I also had a huge spoonful of Peanut Butter with it ?
Try Figs in your shake today! and enjoy!
