Happy Friday!!! Okay, so I am addicted to smoothies, even with the temps being in the 20's. They just hit the spot for me in the mornings. This morning's smoothie was simple but delish. I used a cup of hemp milk, 1 scoop or pea protein powder, a dash of cinnamon, and a handful of frozen berry blend (strawberry, blueberry, and blackberry).
I've had a few people to ask me how I like the pea protein powder. I have to say that I really like it. It doesn't really have a taste, so it doesn't affect the taste of your smoothie. You can tell that the protein is in the smoothie though. It has a slight chalky feel, but nothing compared to some of the other protein powders that I've had in the past. I couldn't decide on which type of protein powder that I wanted to try, but after doing some research the Now Pea Protein powder seemed to be the best buy for me. I didn't want anything expensive, but I did want something with a lot of protein. This has 28 grams of protein, and runs around $20. The protein powder in itself is 130 calories with 2 grams of fat per serving. Just what I was looking for. Another good thing about this protein powder is that is does not contain sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish, or preservatives. It's also easily digested. My main reason for getting this was to mix into my smoothies after my workouts. I figured my body could use the extra protein after my morning workouts.
I've been meaning to share this note with you that was left on my explorer Saturday when I came out of Wal-Mart. I thought it was pretty cool! It made me smile anyway. :o)
Here are the stickers that this person was talking about. :o) I was going to take a picture of the stickers on my back glass, but my window is NASTY from all this yucky weather.
