Glutamine Gumdrops

Glutamine Gumdrops

Since I discovered EFX Sports glutamine powder last month, it has been my best friend! This is a fun recipe that is SO EASY to make it’s not even funny. To get the gumdrop shape, I used those ice cube trays that have the rubber on the bottom so you can push the cubes out. This is the only ice cube tray you should use for this because you won’t be able to get them out if you use the traditional plastic kind. Blue was the color I chose because Glutamine pills are blue. But, you can make them any color you like or none at all.

Reverse Red Velvet Protein Shake

This is a wonderfully easy shake to make, with an interesting twist: the topping is on the bottom! The reason for this is that the topping I have created is heavier than the shake and just sinks in and gets lost, so I simply put the topping on the bottom. Guess what? It’s even better because you get some of the toppings in every sip if you use a spoon or a straw!

Pumpkin Spice Protein Bread

Autumn is in full swing and it’s time for pumpkin everything! I figured I would do my part and create as many things pumpkin as possible. So, here’s one of my protein bread recipes in pumpkin flavor. This is a moist and lovely protein bread that has a better nutritional profile than a store bought protein bar with less junk in it. No high fructose corn syrup, no sugar alcohols, no glycerin, no nasty chemicals. Your body will thank you for it! It is not overly sweet, but you can make it that way if so desired. If you would like to make it gluten-free, feel free to make it with gluten-free oats.

Protein Packed Pumpkin Pops

Tis the season to fall in love with the flavors of fall! However, there are still many hot days left depending on where you live. We live in Wisconsin, and it will be 80 and sunny today—the perfect weather for pops! Nevertheless, I don’t care what the temperature is. I will ALWAYS love ice cream. As always, I created a recipe that has fewer calories and will fit into your macros. They are so low in calories, you can even eat two!
