Chai Cherry Nut Butter Protein Smoothie

YES...The title of this smoothie sounds as good as it tastes! All of my absolute favorites in one jar is the absolute perfect smoothie combination to have after a sweaty summer workout. Join me over the next couple of weeks with FitApproach for the #SummerChallenge and spread the word about Bob's Red Mill Nutritional Boosters!

Last week I received this big old box of deliciousness from Bob's Red Mill and FitApproach. There are enough protein powders, flavors, and recipes to last me for months. High-Fives to this #SummerChallenge that will entail lots of healthy and delicious recipes. I am a BIG fan of Bob's Red Mill products, so I was very excited to be chosen to review their new products. 

I am very skeptical when it comes to protein powders because a lot of the time I do not agree with the ingredients and neither does my body. I also do not rely on protein powders as they are not REAL foods, but they are a great substitute for getting the protein, calories, and nourishment that my body needs while training. Plus, when you find a good protein powder, the recipe creations are endless...Happy Belly = Happy Katie! 

Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods produces more than 400 products, including a full line of certified gluten free products and an extensive line of certified organic products. With a wide variety of whole-grain products—from flours and hot cereals to baking mixes and grains—Bob’s Red Mill has “whole grain foods for every meal of the day.” An Employee-Owned company, Bob’s Red Mill is the nation’s leader in stone milling and is dedicated to producing natural foods in a natural way. They stone grind all common and many uncommon grains into flours and meals on over one-hundred- year-old mills. With all of the sophisticated knowledge of recent times, no machinery has yet been developed that grinds grains into flour as well as these slow-turning, flint-hard quartz millstones of the kind used by millers since ancient times. I LOVE this company and their product and I hope that after reading this post you will check them out and possibly even make some purchases and join the #SummerChallenge to live a healthy and active Summer! 

And now onto that smoothie...

Directions:

I love everything about this smoothie and I hope you will try it sometime this Summer! I think next time I am going to make a Vanilla Mango Nut Butter Smoothie...Mangoes are the fruit of the week that I have been currently crushing on. Yes...they are a pain in the butt to peel, but 100% worth it...Stay tuned...Happy Monday Friends! XOXO
