Live Rite Protein Shake: Chocolate Peppermint

Live Rite Protein Shake, Chocolate Peppermint

With the frigid temperatures, it’s easy to get swept up in the holiday spirit.  Union Square member, Emily G., came in to the gym positively glowing after a stop at the nearby Holiday Market, and together we came up with the perfect holiday tribute: a chocolate peppermint shake. Kick start your holidays with this delicious “holiday in a glass”.

Here’s what you’ll need for a single serving.  Feel free to double it up to help your friends and family get into the holiday spirit.

  • 1 scoop Chocolate Liverite protein powder
  • 3-4 drops of peppermint extract
  • 6oz unsweetened chocolate almond milk (you can substitute skim milk)
  • 1/2 a crushed candy cane for garnish

1. Combine all ingredients (except the candy cane) in a blender, and pulse until smooth.

2. Pour into a glass (or 2 if you’re sharing) and top with a dusting of candy cane pieces.

3. Enjoy!

*Heat your milk before blending for a toasty treat that will keep you warm while you walk through your neighborhood looking at all the holiday lights*
