My Go-To Protein Shake- Raspberry Vanilla

rasp van protein shake

I have a protein shake every morning for breakfast.  I don’t love breakfast foods all that much, so just getting something in my body is my focus.  I make a lot of different protein shakes, but I have one that I make the most and it’s always my “go-to” shake.  It’s a quick, easy, and delicious way to start your day in a super healthy way!

Raspberry Vanilla Protein Shake

1 cup water

1 T chia seeds

1 T coconut oil

1 Scoop V-Core Vantage Vanilla Protein Powder

1/2 c frozen raspberries (or fresh raspberries plus a handful of ice cubes)

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

*You can substitute the raspberries for another fruit, raspberries are just one of my favorites*

** chia seeds and coconut oil are optional, but they both have ton of health benefits**

I think one of my favorite running workouts is speed work.  It is fun to push yourself and then have a little recovery before you push yourself again.  I really think it also makes me become a faster runner. It is also a great calorie burner!

I loved this particular workout.   I walked away feeling like I got a killer workout, but didn’t feel dead.  I think the walking recovery part was the key.  I have done this same workout, but instead of doing the 4.o speed, I did 6.1.  Both are amazing workouts! (You can always change the speed to fit your level of running)
