Blueberry Crumble Protein Smoothie

Blueberry Crumble Protein Smoothie

My latest obsession… healthy, delicious, and satisfies my dessert cravings!

I dislike protein powder.  I can usually taste the chalkiness, the artificial flavor, and the strange texture.  I’ve tried it multiple times in multiple forms, and eventually gave up on it because I couldn’t stand the taste.  I have a large bag of protein powder in my pantry that I just didn’t want to throw away, but it literally just sits there taking up space.

Well, thanks to Anna G. from Breakthru Fitness, I have been introduced to her newest concoction – the Blueberry Crumble.  It is SO GOOD.  So good that when I am doing an intense workout like Peak 10, I dream about the Blueberry Crumble and use it as motivation to work harder.  So good that when I’m drinking it, I can’t stop even though I’d like to save half for later (which I never do).  So good that when I finish drinking it, I am actually very very sad, maybe depressed even.  So good that I look forward to having one every single day.  Yum (as I finish my last sip of today’s allotment).  Sigh.

Thank you Anna, for sharing this wonderful recipe with me and for changing my view on protein powder tasting good.  Now I can actually follow up my workouts with a healthy, protein-packed drink that I absolutely love love love.  Hope you guys love it like I do!!!
