Peanut Butter Protein Shake

Posted on August 4, 2011

This dairy free peanut butter protein shake is a great way to start the day.  I like to drink it before I go to the gym –the protein (about 50 grams) gives me energy during my entire workout, and then some.

Strawberry Lime Shake

I’m loving this gluten free, dairy free Strawberry Lime Shake made of fresh homemade coconut milk.  My boys love it too.  After I took a picture of the shake yesterday and placed it in the fridge, the boys grabbed it greedily and drank it all down.  They have a certain penchant for consuming my photo shoots like that.

Ginger Cilantro Green Shake

The idea for this green smoothie comes from the amazing Sarma of oneluckyduck.com.  I recently purchased her book Living Raw Food and am loving it.  While some of the recipes can be complex, she has many that can be made in minutes. 

This Ginger Cilantro Shake is a hybrid of her Cilantro-Pineapple Shake and her Bangkok Baby.  Here is my version, a nice healthy green drink for Saint Patrick’s day.

Zane’s Frank Zane Egg White Protein Powder (or protein powder of your choice) is delicious any way you serve it.  I love making a fruit ... read more →
