Protein Shakes

I make protein shakes for breakfast almost everyday, because it gets me out the door in the morning. So when I stumbled across this idea on Pinterest I knew it was going to shorten my morning routine. I am used to measuring everything out each morning, and blending it up. Instead of doing that everyday, measure once a week into ziplock bags and stick everything in the freezer. Then you have a pre-measured protein shake for each morning with only the smallest amount of effort.

Ingredients in each bag:
5 frozen peach slices
1/2 banana, sliced
1/4 cup of raspberries or blackberries
1/3 cup of vanilla yogurt
1/2 of a lime, zested

Switch up the berries and the fruit to suit your own preferences. Toss the bags into the freezer and pull them out when you need them. I have a magic bullet that is the perfect size for my insulated mug. I stuff the magic bullet with about three handfuls of spinach and about 3/4 cup of water. Blend together until smooth. Then add the entire contents of one of your frozen ziplock bags and blend together until smooth - add one scoop of protein powder, honey, cinnamon or whatever else you can think of. Pour into an insulated mug and hit the road. Believe me when I tell you that you will NOT notice the spinach - the lime zest and fruit takes care of it - I promise!

Oh and because these protein shakes have been so much better with lime zest lately... this has been my afternoon snack... vanilla yogurt, a handful of granola and a bit of lime zest!
