Yep, this day is for real. National Chocolate Milkshake Day. Could there be a better day? Well...I guess if it was National Chocolate Milkshake Minus The Calories Day, then maybe there could be. I'm sure we'd all be jumping for joy in a big pool of chocolate goodness if that was the case. But it isn't, so we can do one of two things:
1) Indulge our taste buds on a sinful little treat.
2) Indulge our taste buds on a sinful-but-healthy little treat.
I chose #2. But I've been known to choose #1 on occasion. Let's be honest—everyone should choose #1 on occasion. Just sayin'. The ingredients:
chocolate PlantFusion protein powder and PB2 came at me from Swanson Health Products, whose prices really can't be beat. I added cherry CHO and some mini chocolate chips to up the flavor, and half a banana is just necessary in any smoothie. The raspberries? I don't know...they were looking sad in my refrigerator so I threw 'em in, too. Along with four ice cubes.
Just four, that's all you need. I SWEAR.
The result was quite fantastic if I do say so myself.
Also worth it? Local honey.
Bless her soul for having an extra jar with her today. $7 for the smaller jar above, and its so worth every single cent. I'm seriously considering asking her if I can meet her bees so I can bow down to them.
You think I'm lying.
Tomorrow: A fitness update and a workout. It's been awhile.
Question: What product do you buy locally that you can't live without?
