Cinnamon Roll Protein Shake

Cinnamon Roll Protein Shake

 

  • Yield:12 Servings
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time:5-10 minutes

Right off the bat, let me just tell you that this is one of the yummiest protein shakes I have ever made! This is the perfect refueling post-workout shake, because it has whey protein, Karbolyn (a fast digesting carbohydrate), chia seeds which contain antioxidants, electrolytes, and nutrients; glutamine powder which aids in recovery; Kre-Alkalyn, which re-stocks your muscles with energy and also aids in recovery, and finally gelatin, which helps you get quality sleep and cushions your joints. 

You can find the baking extracts online and in the baking sections of most supermarkets. The butter flavor is relatively easy to find, but the caramel extract you may have to buy online. You can live without it, but it adds so much to this shake it’s not even funny! 

While this is a fantastically functional shake, it’s the mouthwatering flavor that will really knock you in the kisser! I swear it tastes just like a cinnamon roll from the bakery. Go ahead; refuel yourself in the best possible way!

  • 1 scoop EFX Sports Vanilla Pure Whey

Put it all in the blender… and that’s it! If you want to make it pretty, squirt some of the caramel syrup into the glass before you pour the shake.
