Trader Joe’s Breakfast Shake

I’m officially a New Yorker! After a crazy few months, Andrew and I are finally settled in Brooklyn with our two little bulldogs. Unpacking after having our stuff in storage for 6 months was like an extra Christmas. After a quick trip to Trader Joe’s, I whipped up an early morning protein shake for breakfast this morning using my long lost blender. I’d never tried the Trader Joe’s protein, but I was pleasantly surprised!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Scoops Trader Joe’s Vanilla Flavored Whey Protein
  • 1/2 cup Pacific Organic Almond Milk (I like the Vanilla flavored – found at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/2 cup Water 🙂
  • 1 cup organic Strawberries (fresh!)

I loved this shake. Not only was it super easy to make (it seriously took no time), it is packed with protein that my body digested with ease. Protein in the morning is important because our bodies digest to slower than carbohydrates — a good thing to remember when I’m being tempted by all the NY bagels around. That means, you stay fuller longer!
