A Raspberry-Pineapple Protein Slushy For Spring

A Raspberry-Pineapple Protein Slushy For Spring
Yum

Sometimes a smoothie just doesn’t cut it. So I’m mixing it up a bit with this raspberry-pineapple protein slushy and it’s perfect for the Spring and Summer months. I thought a bright, fruity, protein slushy might be just what I needed to kick-start my Spring and give me a non-caffeinated energy boost. Personally, with all that’s going on my life right now, lets just say, I need this.

Raspberries are loaded with health benefits, including high levels of Vitamin C and antioxidants.  Pineapple is loaded with dietary fiber, manganese and thiamine,  a B-vitamin that is involved in energy production.  I added some protein powder and almond milk for a dairy-free shot of protein and calcium, and I sweetened this naturally with a bit of honey.  This slushy is a great way to give yourself a shot of energy and nutrition and help you be the best you, despite how little sleep you had the night before.
