If you’ve stuck around here for awhile (thanks Mom!) you know that smoothies are my jam. I drink them year round, which works out much better for me in California than it did in New York. Even then, in the middle of winter I would put on layers and wrap myself in blankets just to be able to drink my smoothies. So worth it.
When Designer Whey contacted me and asked if I would be a judge in their Mystery Color Shakedown Recipe Contest, I was super excited. I’ve been cleaning up my diet since the move and trying to increase my protein intake, and protein smoothies are a great way to take something I already love and bump up the nutrition. I’ve been pretty picky about my protein powders in the past and hated the chalky taste of most that I tried. So far, I’m loving that Designer Whey uses no artificial sweeteners and doesn’t taste chalky.
Here’s some more details as well as a video that explains the rules of the contest – basically submit your recipes every week for a chance to win super great prizes – Designer Whey products, Dr. Melina’s newest book, even a blender!
To get you started, here’s one of my recent favorites:
Chocolate Pineapple Protein Punch
1 cup chocolate soy milk (I used Trader Joe’s Extra, which has extra protein)
