This is a sponsored post for Puritans Pride, through Sweat Pink. I was given products in exchange for my recipes, but my recipes and opinions are all my own.
So as you know, I like shakes. I drink at least one a day, so I am always looking for great recipes. So when Puritans Pride approached me (through SweatPink) I was excited to experiment! I love coming up with new yummy recipes, so this was right up my ally!
I was so excited when my box of goodies came, and I couldn't wait to start! For real tho, if you have been stalking my MFP, you know I use the Unflavored Soy Protein Isolate daily. I am in actual romantic love with it. It has a smooth texture and no flavor and it is SO FULL OF PROTEIN! It has 24 grams of protein, one gram of fat and ZERO carbs. Its exactly what I need because I am struggling to get my protein in, but I don't have carbs or fat to spare. We're a match made in heaven!
Honestly, choosing a yummy recipe to feature was the hardest part of this. Over the last few weeks I have made SO MANY and so picking one was tough. I fought the urge to feature a pumpkin pie smoothie (one I have made tons of times using the protein powder) and instead decided to share an apple pie smoothie I am obsessed with right now. mmmm apple pie!
Apple Pie Smoothie
1/2 apple (I grabbed gala) roughly chopped
1 scoop Puritans Pride Unflavored Soy Isolate Protein Powder (you could use any vanilla powder tho)
1/2 cup apple juice or cider
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup oatmeal
1 tbs vanilla extract
a few shakes of cinnamon
Put all the ingredients into a blender.
If you are feeling fancy- pour into a mason jar, and top with a pinch of oats and a few pieces of apple.
And here are the stats!
And in all honesty- I have to tell you after I made it and tasted it, I added vanilla Shakeology to mine. I can't help myself! I love it and it goes well with this if you are a Shakeo drinker. So my stats are a little different.
BUT this isn't about Shakeo, its about Puritans Pride and I love their protein. I have been adding it to my daily Shakeology every day for a few weeks.
What is the coolest part of this whole thing is that Puritans Pride is gonna give you some awesome stuff! Woop!
