Irish Coffee Protein Shake

St. Paddy’s Day is still a ways away, but I am in the mood to be Irish for a minute. Indulge me. This protein shake reminds me of the Bailey’s Irish Creme ice cream I used to eat when I was a kid. Interestingly enough, I have only had real Irish coffee (made by Irish people no less) once in …

This is some seriously sexy protein

I’m delving into a different kind of protein shake. One for the “grown and sexy” set.

Peppermint Patty Protein Shake

As in Peppermint Paddy. And no…I am not talking about the girl from the Peanuts cartoons. I am talking about the velvety, refreshing, makes-your-mouth-say “AMEN!” taste of a peppermint paddy. Before I give up the goods I gotta tell you a story about these little treats. When I was younger my great-grandmother used to keep a candy dish full of …

But post-op…once I started trusting fruit again (new post-ops…tread carefully with fruit…it has sugar too although not sucrose and bananas have a LOT of sugar) I was drawn to bananas. I think I needed the …

Now this video took forever and three days to save to my computer (and another seven to save to this blog–even after compressing!) so you have to be kind and watch it. 🙂 After all the hoopla I realized I cut out the last scene in the damn thing.
