52 Weeks of Protein Shakes -- Week 3

Shake it Up Saturday! 


I Love EVERYTHING about the beach!! The sun, the water, relaxing, and just taking it all in. What makes the beach EVEN better?!?! When the resort you're staying at is on the beach and you can get refreshing drinks brought right to you! To be honest this has happened 1 time during my adult life and I LOVED every minute of it! I kept telling Kelly, during our stay that THIS is the life I was meant to live! I would go back in a heart beat!!! Alas our fortunes have not aligned... So until then, I'm stuck making my own dang drink!! So the other day when I was brainstorming ideas for my 52 weeks of Protein Shakes Challenge... (I'm brainstorming a lot... 52 is a ton!) My thoughts drifted back to my drink of choice on the aforementioned vacation. A virgin strawberry blonde! The drink for the invariably indecisive... Where you get to have a pina colada AND a strawberry daiquiri. The marriage if two amazing flavors! What a great source of inspiration for my shake of the week!!!
