Hi guys! I’m doing a double-whammie with this blog post today because it includes a workout AND a SUPER YUM holiday smoothie recipe post workout ! Yep, I know, I got you! I wanted to keep this as simple as possible because lets be real, the holidays are hectic! So for the workout - no gym needed, since they are probably operating on some whacky holiday hours any way. Plus it's only half an hour long so you can easily squeeze it in whenever you have a bit of spare time. The protein shake only has 6 ingredients, tastes amazing and will surely curb your peppermint latte cravings. Enjoy this combo and then don't be too hard on yourself for all the amazing holiday treats and drinks coming your way, you earned it! 

The WORKOUT

For this workout all you need is yourself and a booty band (which is optional!) You can do this one at home or anywhere you have room to set up a mat. It’s a 30 minute FULL BODY workout so here's how its going to look: there are three circuits each with four exercises, you'll set a timer for 10 minutes then go through the first circuit as many times as you can during that ten minutes! Then move on to circuit 2, set the timer again etc.! 10 minutes of abs, 10 of arms and 10 of legs! Ready?! Let’s goooo

CIRCUIT 1 - ABS

Set timer for 10 minutes

Woo! Are you sweating? Time to refresh, refuel and rehydrate with a high protein smoothie! I’m keeping this recipe festive because I love enjoying the flavors of the holidays buuuut still want to keep it clean and nourishing!

The protein powder I'm using in my smoothie today is Vital Proteins Vanilla Coconut Collagen Whey. I’ve learned so much about collagen this year and have been very conscious of adding it into my diet through bone broth and Vital Proteins yummy flavors!

Collagen is a protein that is found in almost every tissue in our body. It’s a key component in healthy looking skin and joint sustainability, but people have also reported better gut health symptoms and higher energy from taking it!

1 cup almond milk
5-6 ice cubes
1 banana (frozen or not)
1 scoop Vital Proteins Vanilla Coconut Collagen Whey
