Easy & Delicious Vanilla Chai Protein Shake

(sorry about the bad coloring in the pics! My camera battery was dead so I grabbed my phone!)
This is so simple, so refreshing, and full of protein but not full of tons of calories!

Vanilla Chai Protein Shake

1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
1 tsp of honey
1tbsp of almond butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Blend it all together and enjoy!

*My current protein powder is Designer Whey and has 21 grams of protein and only 100 calories per scoop. It has very little carbs and very little sugar.
This is my first time using this because I grabbed what looked to be the best that Kroger had at the time. However, I have used Spiru-Tein powder for many years now and love it!

Do you have any favorite quick protein shake recipes?

Crazy Good Life

So, you might have noticed that we haven't blogged in a while. Daspri was going to take a break for a short while and I was still going to post. However, I unintentionally took a short break too!

Life is SO full these days, but so full of so many WONDERFUL things!

So, I am back for now and here's a very quick glimpse into life over the last month.

 There has been A LOT of this...reading, writing and arithmetic!
and A LOT of this too!
A few friends and I ran the Color Me Rad race and got all colored up! SUPER FUN!
I kind of liked it ;)
scored a new coffee table from my in-laws garage! It was love at first sight!
the perfect new spot for my many cups of coffee throughout the day!
the boys got their summer this nice mohawk silhouette
Fun 4th of July drinks-lemonade with honey and sugar rimmed glasses!
...and the adult version ;)
got some new pillows for our bed...first home purchase I've made in quite a while...LOVE them and LOVE Ikea!
Hooray for massaged Kale salad and fresh summer produce!
Shout out for some yummy quinoa!
More summer freshness...
some peach picking....
...that resulted in some peach cobbler goodness!

So, that's a very little glimpse into of our life over the last very thankful and blessed above and beyond what I deserve!

Enjoy your day and I'll see ya soon!
