My favorite post-workout snack is a protein shake. Not only do they taste good, they help me to replenish my energy and give my muscles the protein they need to help them become stronger. There are tons and tons of different protein shake recipes out there, but this one is my fav when I do a morning workout. It is a cinnamon roll protein shake! Who knew you could treat your body to some protein AND treat your taste buds to a cinnamon roll!Cinnamon-Swirl-Protein-Smoothie-41

How good does this sound!? I love how creative you can get with protein smoothies. Working out isn’t such a hassle when you know you get a sweet, protein packed reward after!
