Very Vanilla Protein Shake – Vegan

I remember a few years ago I used to hang out with some of my gym friends after our workouts. We would all sit outside the gym, drink our protein shakes, and just talk about life. It was a great time! What wasn’t so great though was the protein that I was consuming. It was a typical whey protein. At the time that was okay for me. No big deal. But as time went on and I went vegan I dropped the whey protein for the obvious reasons. I want nothing to do with cow milk anymore, thank you.

But really, who needs whey proteins when you can have Sunwarrior plant based proteins?! I received Sunwarrior products a few days ago and I am hooked. Oh my gosh. I can’t decide if I like chocolate or vanilla protein best. They’re both amazing. But I feel like my very vanilla protein shake is a pretty awesome treat so that’s what we’re going to be celebrating today.

For the past few months I’ve been dealing with a frustrating hamstring injury which has held me back in my workouts quite a bit. This past week I’ve been feeling almost 100% so I’ve been amping things up. Finally! And my package from Sunwarrior arrived just in time. I’ve been having post workout protein shakes almost everyday now. I really think that it motivates me to get in a great workout so that I can repair my muscles with a delicious frosty drink. Working out is such an important part of a healthy lifestyle and fueling your body with the proper nutrients to repair itself is just as important. Treat your body well and drink this shake!

  1. Protein drinks, sounds great. This Warrior brand, can be found in the USA? I am leaving India to join my girlfriend in Arnold PA for a couple of months before going to Canada again. Leaving India behind for now, my 94 years old dad needs me, lives in Canada. Bet these ‘oldies’ would also benefit from protein drinks. His diet of meat and potatoes, washed down with milk and coffee, then the cigarette… hard to believe the body can take such abuse. You are an inspirition! In a hotel right now, in India, and you bet i have my yoga mat with me. Now, just to get that protein drink. soon… arriving in the USA April 24th! Looking soooo forward to humungous green salads, green smoothies, and raw foods galore! Keeping it simple πŸ™‚
    My 26 years young daughter who lives in Canada loves working out and enjoys protein drinks!
    Thanx for all the great ideas!


    • Hi Visala,
      You can find this in the US! Click through to their website from the link above and there you’ll be able to order products straight to your home or click the Store Locater link which will let you find retailers in your area. Your girlfriend lives about an hour away from me. So strange how small the world is!
      I’m sure that your dad would benefit from these drinks too! I bet that he’d be pretty interested because they taste so great πŸ˜‰
      Thank you so much for your kindness and compliments! I’m so glad that you have your yoga mat with you, always a necessity!
      Sending you positive vibes and safe travels back to the US!
