What's your workout like? Yoga? Maybe dance, or are you a runner? No matter what you love to do, pumping your heart and giving your cells oxygen is the most important part! Nourishing yourself afterwards is a close second - so why not have some fun with it? 

Protein is incredibly important when you're getting active and using your body. Without an adequate amount of protein, our muscles can't heal as quickly or efficiently as they should. Post-workout protein shakes are always a delicious way to refuel, but why not indulge and whip up an amazing dessert to switch things up! 

Bottom Layer: 

  • 1 frozen banana (cut into chunks and frozen in a zip bag the night or days before) 
  • splash of milk (any milk of your choosing)
  • 1 ice cube
  • 1 spoon of peanut butter
  • 1 tsp organic coconut palm sugar or 2 drops liquid stevia (optional)
  • TINY splash of vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop Source Organic grass-fed protein powder

Blend everything in a blender or food processor, pour into wine glass or ice cream bowl. Top Layer:

  • 1 frozen banana

  • splash of milk
  • 1 ice cube
  • 1 spoon of peanut butter
