Afternoon Pick Me Up Shake

Afternoon Pick Me Up Shake

Post may contain affiliate links

When my kids are asleep–it is go time for me!  This includes nap time.  The moment they are resting I am full speed ahead to knock out my “to-do” list.  Before I started tracking my macros, I really hit afternoon lows and was in desperate need of nap time over go-time.  This in fact is one reason I really fell in love with tracking because I noticed a huge difference in my afternoon “lag” and its disappearance.


One thing I love while I work is an afternoon beverage (no…not that kind).  I love some type of coffee option that doesn’t provide lots of caffeine, satisfies my afternoon craving and tastes fabulous!


So–enjoy this simple recipe to fill your macro day with an afternoon pick me up full of balance and taste.


Afternoon Pick Me Up Shake

1/2 Ripe Banana

(A frozen one is even better)

2 oz Cold Brew Coffee (or some of the morning’s leftovers even.  I am lucky enough to have a decaf coldbrew option from Big Red Coldbrew)

10g Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides

4 oz Almond Milk (Or other milk of choice skim, 2%)

1 Tablespoon PB fit

1 Tablespoon Cocoa powder





Place all ingredients in a blender, I use the Magic Bullet, blend and then drink the heck out of it! I love to pour it over ice and drink from an icy cold mason jar.


Total Macros in the Shake:

Protein:12 grams

Carbohydrates: 20 grams

Fat: 3 grams

Enjoy your afternoon pick me up filled with balance, taste and some good macro value!

Work Hard Be Kind,
