Staying fit and active can be a tough, but necessary, part of everyone’s life. Having a job that has me sitting from 9-5 plus a blog that has me making a lot of amazing baked goods makes it extra tough to fit into that cosplay outfit or cute nerdy tee.
In the summer, I’m a big fan of protein-packed smoothies for breakfast to help stay healthy and fit, but my smoothies always turn out a bit less than perfect. I always put in way too much fruit and protein powder and not enough liquid, which turns it into delicious-but-difficult-to-eat sludge. Luckily, Silk (the soy milk company) has put together a bunch of fun summer drinks including a Strawberry-Banana smoothie they’ve named the “Straw-Nana Flip.” The smoothie has the perfect mix of liquid and fruit, plus an added dash of vanilla and sugar (my sweetener of choice). Add a dollop of protein powder, and you’ll be feeling better than Wonder Woman. Find this recipe and more on the Slkology Facebook page.
I’d love to work this smoothie into a morning workout party with some of my favorite geeky ladies. Maybe as a good break between “Just Dance” sessions?
Because they’re awesome, Silk is giving away a chance to win Silk for a year and an entertaining set. Whether you use it for a workout sesh like me, or for another summertime party, you’ll be in good hands. Just answer this question below: How can you reinvent your favorite summertime gathering? Is there something new you want to try? (Bringing smoothies instead of cupcakes would sure be a change for me!)
