I really am a warm weather girl at heart. I have no idea how that could possibly have happened growing up in Canada...
Now as much as I like to get my sweat on at the gym or the yoga studio, I have to admit- leaving a warm place with a warm body to walk across the parking lot through the snow to a cold car equals a cold body. Fast. Sometimes the hydrating doesn't happen because I just can't get in any liquid that's more than a few degrees below my elevated body temperature. Sometimes the protein "shake" doesn't exactly happen either. Just too cold.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm not exactly getting on the recipe developing bandwagon again.
"Guidelines" my dear...
1 scoop of your preferred brand of protein powder (I use this one)
almond milk (or milk of choice, though I love this Canadian company)
I just happened to have a smidge of chocolate almond milk in the fridge, so I poured that dribble into a small saucepan with a scoop of chocolate protein powder & a bunch more unsweetened almond milk. Adjust amounts to suit your own tastes & kitchen contents. Whisk over medium heat to prevent scorching. Do not allow to boil.
Add marshmallows if you have them handy :)
Enjoy a warm cup of yum (before it grows a skin!)
*I can't vouch for any other brands of protein doing weird things when heated in this manner.
