I just wanted to let you guys in on my faster shake tip. I just discovered it the other day and it seems to work well for me! Not having to get out all the ingredients helps with the time crunch tremendously!
Ahead of time (doesn't really seem to matter how long) dump all the ingredients you're going to use in a shake into a 1 qt canning jar, except for the ice and protein powder.
Keep jar in fridge overnight or until ready to use. When ready, simply pour the contents of the jar into a blender and add desired amount of ice. Blend well for a bit then add the protien powder. Blend until you get it to 'fluff'. Pour back into the canning jar and enjoy!
You could also make up multiples on a day when you have the rest of the ingredients already out!
If you felt like I spoke in Greek, feel free to leave your question in the comment section. Thanks for stopping by!
