Strawberry Vanilla Vegan Protein Shake

Yesterday, I had an amazing morning running the Damon Runyon 5K for Cancer at Yankee Stadium. My friend Julie and I raised money for cancer research and got to enjoy the exhilarating 5K course around Yankee Stadium, including two laps on the actual warming track right on the field. I had a blast and boy was I a ball of sweat when we finished! It felt great! However as soon as I got home (and after I jumped in a shower) I decided to whip up a protein shake for myself to hold me over till my early dinner plans. The random, absentmindedly made concoction came out so yummy I had to share!


one packet of vegan vanilla protein powder (bought at Whole Foods)

1 cup of vanilla almond milk (but you can use coconut milk, rice or soy!)

1/2 cup or so of ripe organic strawberries

1/2 a tray of organic ice cubes

Blend away!! Also, feel free to add some Truvia or agave in there if you want it to taste more like a strawberry milkshake. 😉
