Enjoying Life one RUN at a Time

Favorite Protein Smoothie

After a hard run or workout, nothing hits the spot like a protein smoothie.  I have played around with many recipes, but this one is my favorite and go to.  I am now stuck in a rut and make this one all.the.time.  This is great for post-run, post-lifting, snack, or dessert.
