Chocolate Covered Strawberry Protein Shake

Protein is an integral part of building muscle. If you’re hitting those weights hard, but aren’t getting enough protein, then you’re sabotaging your gains. Luckily, protein comes in many forms! I like to have a protein shake immediately following my intense weight sessions. This one is super easy and quite delicious!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 Cup Almond Milk
  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (I use this one: http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/san/rawfusion.html)
  • 1 Heaping Tablespoon Cocoa (I like mine real chocolate-ty!) 😀
  • Handful of Frozen or Fresh Strawberries
  • 5-8 Ice Cubes
  • **Alternatively, you can reduce the Almond Milk to 3/4 Cup and add 1/4 Cup of Espresso or strong coffee!)

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Toss all ingredients into a blender.
  • Blend until creamy smooth.
  • Pour into glass and garnish with fresh strawberries.

Enjoy!
