BBDchallenge: Make your Beauty Protein Shake as delicious as your morning latte
You know what we hate?
We hate that chalky protein shake taste in the morning when all we are trying to do is be healthy and efficient by intaking all of our daily greens in one lovely green smoothie. That said, we put our team on a mission to find the tastiest and healthiest recipe for our daily morning greens. What did those over-achievers come back with? Not only did they find the most delicious recipe but the tastiest beauty green supplement we have ever come across. We decided to send it for a test drive and send it to our pickiest palette, Rachel Brooks our BBDfitness Creative Director. Read on to see what she had to say.
"I don't love the typical
protein shake taste but this
was all my daily greens with
the taste of my morning
Creative Director, Rachel Brooks
Team BBD: Tell us how it went?
Rachel Brooks: I want my morning routine as easy as possible. I have a very full house with two rambunctious dogs so my mornings are what you would call - chaotic - to say the least. I honestly loved the idea of getting all of my essential green needs in one dose first thing in the morning. I'm also not a morning person, at all. I ended up prepping the smoothie ingredients the night before because I know myself well enough to realize that if I have to measure before 8 am I'll be reaching for the coffee maker instead.
Team BBD: How about the taste?
Rachel Brooks: It tasted great! I'm not just saying that. I'm not a dairy person, so I traditionally avoid yogurt based smoothies anyways. This tasted a bit like a colder version of my almond milk latte. I'm sold. Oh, and the Vital Proteins on it's on isn't bad either. Day two I got lazy and just made a little green juice and it wasn't bad at all!
Team BBD: So did we pick the perfect recipe? How did we do?
Rachel Brooks: Goal accomplished! You did great. I'm not like Rachel Sigl - our founder - who can stomach anything in the name of health. I tend to be a bit of a baby when it comes to the whole juicing movement. This was a win in my book, so well done!
