Being a parent is sometimes just, well, rough. There are some weeks when I think that those “rough patches” will be never-ending. Let’s face it, when you’re a parent, there is no more YOU time. If you’re having a tough day, week, month… you still have to be a parent. You smile through the pain and difficulties, you laugh when you really want to cry, and find patients when you just want to punch a wall.
When there isn’t enough time in the day (or every day) and you need a little pick me up of happy, do something small for yourself that helps to start your day off sweet and refreshed.
Having a protein shake isn’t just easy, but it can be packed full of healthy benefits. This shake is made with vanilla, banana, and topped with cinnamon. 20 grams of protein, fiber, potassium, B vitamins, and much more.
Here is how to do it:
- ½ cup of coconut milk
- ½ cup of water
- 2 scoops Arbonne vanilla protein powder
- 1 ripe banana
- Blend ingredients on high
- Pour over ice in a blender ball and shake before pouring into a glass
