Key Lime Pie Protein Shake

Yesterday I went to the library to check out some fitness magazines.
A lot of people forget to use the library as a source to find out what's new
 in the health/fitness world. You can keep up to date with out spending a single penny.

Ahh....I love the library!

I love reading Oxygen magazine.  I love that they have pictures of women that actually look like they workout rather than just slim-looking women.  It's very inspirational! 

They always have great recipes and every month they introduce a new shake recipe.
January's shake recipe is Key Lime Pie Shake.

I couldn't wait to try it!

I love trying new shake recipes, especially if it tastes like having a treat!
I had this delicious shake in the morning for breakfast before my workout.

It's got a freshness to it from the lime zest which I love!

Great way to start the day or use it as post-work-out shake!

  1. I remember seeing this recipe in Oxygen months ago and I'd been looking all over for it- I guess I need to start with the library next time. Thanks for sharing!
