Chocolate Raspberry Protein Smoothie

There were other fruits in here, but the raspberries and chocolate really took over. It tasted like an awesome dessert! :] Basically my morning meal replacement/energizer for before I took a quiz. I needed something super fast and easy. :P

Chocolate Strawberry Mango Protein Smoothie

Guess who finally finished her 11-lb. bag of frozen strawberries from Costco!? (I got it before I started medical school. o_o)

I’m not a morning person, and somewhere whilst making my protein after-workout smoothie in my foggy morning stupor, I used a spoon to shove the strawberries that weren’t blending in a downward fashion.

Well, this genius also left said spoon in the blender and forgot about it.

In case you’re wondering, no one died (other than my blender, anyway :[ ). My new one makes life a whole lot more convenient for me, so there’s a plus. :O

I’m also really glad that my friends look out for me. :D

They tell me when there’s free food on campus that I don’t know about. <3

I rarely put ice in my smoothies since I don’t get along too well with brainfreezes, but the fact that I’ve been using frozen fruit also helps. :P It’s already cold! No ice necessary.

Chocolate Tofu Protein Shake

I am exercising the right to making super-super fast things that give me protein when I need it (aka after I just lifted weights and finally make it home after a super-long day). This one’s unbelievably easy and pretty healthy. :O I got a giant bag of protein powder from Costco for the days where I don’t have time to cook up something with protein really quickly after I work out. :X
