Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Tumblr

Erin was sitting poolside drinking her strawberry, blueberry Mommi 3-in-1 shake—Protein + Prenatals + DHA never tasted …or felt this good. 

Now she’s on the beach in Hawaii and still enjoying this tasty treat.

It is simple to make and so refreshing.

- 10 oz coconut milk (or liquid of your choice)

- Handful of frozen strawberries

- Handful of frozen blueberries (frozen so you don’t have to add ice to make it cold)

- 1 serving Vanilla Mommi protein powder.

Blend it up and enjoy!! Preferably by the pool in CA or on the beach in Hawaii with Erin!!

You’ve heard of re-gifting? Well, here at Mommi we enjoy re-sharing!  Our friend Andrea Ovard, The Baking Dietitian, brought us this delicious chocolate peppermint holiday protein shake last year. And we think it definitely deserves a re-share! We even added a couple of extra goodies (think thin mints, candy canes & whipped cream) to this already minty treat.

It’s Holiday Time—Let the Party Begin: Egg-Not Nog

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Tumblr

There are so many wonderful flavors and spices to help you with your holiday treats and libations! Think pumpkin, cranberry, cinnamon, gingerbread, even nutmeg. And then of course, there is that love to hate holiday drink—egg nog.  Traditional holiday egg nog includes: heavy cream, egg yolks, sugar alcohol, oh and more sugar and maybe even bourbon. Come on, we know pregnant and nursing moms stay away from alcohol and let’s not even talk about loading up on all that sugar!

Luckily the great creators over at Nutrition Stripped have reworked this festive holiday drink and bring you the Egg-NOT Nog.  It is full of all sorts of great things like almond milk, cashews, macadamia nuts, warming spices, and even a hint of bourbon (if you are cleared for alcohol). Nutrition Stripped delivers this recipe way better than we ever could. So bump on over to Nutrition Stripped and prepare to create a holiday delight. Oh and just a side note, we at Mommi would also toss in 2 scoops of Vanilla, Mommi 3-in-1 protein to give this drink just the right amount of holiday boost.
