3 Mouthwatering Recipes You Won’t Believe Are Healthy!

When it comes to losing weight, PROTEIN IS THE SECRET WEAPON! 🏋️‍♀️💪 

 

1️⃣ Reduces Appetite: Protein is a natural appetite suppressant! It keeps you feeling full and satisfied longer, helping you wave goodbye to those pesky cravings that always seem to derail your progress. 

 

2️⃣ Boosts Metabolism: Fun fact: Your body burns more calories digesting protein than it does digesting fats or carbohydrates. That means more protein = a turbocharged metabolism. (Who doesn’t want to burn more calories just by eating?)

 

3️⃣ Preserves Lean Muscle: Protein is essential for preserving and building lean muscle. Combine it with exercise, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for a sculpted, toned physique that turns heads.

 

So, how can you easily incorporate more protein into your diet? We’ve got you covered with three delicious recipes using our Thrive ELITE Protein to get you started:

  • 1 Cup of Raspberries
  • 1 Cup of Blueberries
  • 2 Scoops of Thrive ELITE Vanilla Protein
  • 2 Cups of Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Yogurt (We used the brand Harmless Harvest)

Instructions:

  1. Blend the berries in a food processor or blender until nearly liquified into a smoothie-like consistency.
  2. Pour the thick berry liquid into a large bowl. Stir in the protein powder. Add the yogurt and very gently mix everything together. You want those patches of red, white and blue
  3. Pour mixture evenly into each popsicle mold. Freeze for 4-6 hours or overnight.
