This year, one of our intentions is to get more creative with what we’re putting into our bodies as fuel. We’re focusing on breakfast first, which is arguably the most undervalued yet most important meal of the day. One healthy and straightforward addition to our health regimen is an occasional protein shake, whether after a workout or in between meals.
The best part about protein shakes is that there are so many different recipes to choose from — ones you’ll actually look forward to drinking in the morning. We have our eye on everything from Cinnabon-inspired concoctions to shakes infused with coffee when you need an extra pick-me-up.
Keep scrolling to check out some of our favorite protein shake recipes that are anything but boring.
