I’m so excited to be the winner of one of Svelte‘s #FitnessFriday contests. The company was so generous and they recently sent me five cases of my favorite flavors! (Tom is also excited haha)
They let me choose my flavors, so I picked a few old favorites (vanilla and cappuccino), one for Tom (chocolate) and an exciting new flavor (banana creme)! I’m so pumped to have these because they’re gluten free, dairy free, organic and, let’s not forget, tasty ways to get protein when I might not otherwise get it. PLUS they have a reclosable cap (which means a lot more than you think!). I’m always on the go with work at the Aquarium, work at the gym, workouts, meetups with my BMOREtoned crew and just…life. These easy shakes are there for me when I don’t have time to throw something together.
I love these, but there is SO much! haha I’m not sure I can actually drink them all (I absolutely can). Don’t get me wrong…like I said, Svelte shakes taste great and are good for a quick meal on-the-go BUT they also work perfect for smoothies as a tasty nutritious boost!
One of my favorite smoothies uses the vanilla Svelte (my Pina Colada Smoothie) but I wanted to expand my horizons…I found an awesome new tropical smoothie from the Svelte Pinterest Page to warm up my insides while it’s freezing out – check out the easy recipe below!
- 1 banana Svelte protein shake
- 2 C fresh spinach
- 1 C fresh kiwi
- 1 banana
- 1/2 C pineapple
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Imagine you’re in a tropical place…
- And enjoy!
So tasty! I have a lot of smoothies to make… I’m also looking for/trying to create some new recipes with the use of these shakes. They are creamy and flavored and I think they could be really great for some sauces, dips, baked goods, etc. Let the experimenting begin…haha (insert mad scientist laugh)
- 1 C cappuccino Svelte protein shake
- ¼ C chia seeds
- Whisk chia seeds into Svelte and set aside for 3 minutes.
- Whisk mixture again.
- Refrigerate for 3 hours to overnight.
My next move is to try using Svelte to make some flavored ice cream…we’ll see how that goes! :)
Have an idea on how I can use these shakes? Let me know in the comments!
