Protein Orange Julius

Protein Orange Julius

38 days people!!!!  In 38 days I get to marry the man of my dreams!! I am so so excited.  And with all of the fun celebrations happening before the big day it is extra important that I eat well during the week and work out when I can!  Matt and I have gotten really creative with our protein shakes lately and this Quest vanilla protein powder is so tasty!  Also it is only 100 calories for a huge scoop which is awesome.  One of my favorite flavor combos is orange and vanilla.  Who doesn’t love that creamsicle taste??  We normally use the unsweetened almond milk but I tried this with regular vanilla almond milk and it is so perfect!  I just used 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1/2 cup of orange juice, 1/2 scoop of protein powder and some ice which was about 150 calories in total.  This is great for a quick breakfast or a pre or post workout shake.  Here is my ingredient line up>>
