*I received products for this post but all opinions and thoughts are my own.
I have a feeling this summer is going to be hot! As we are slowly approaching the First Day of Summer, we are getting spurts of intense heat. We went through the May grey and now June gloom. But this weekend was an exception to that and it was in the high 80s and got up to almost 100 degrees in some parts of San Diego County. I spent most of the weekend outdoors, working out, and spending time with my love. I love working out and I love the way I feel after but this heat really got to me this weekend and I needed something to help my body recover while cooling me down. It was a perfect time for me to try one of Bob’s Red Mill smoothie drinks. Perfect for post recovery and a hot pre-summer day.
As a FitApproach Ambassador I am all about promoting healthy living and lifestyle and bringing the best products to my readers and followers. Firstly, Bob’s Red Mill has been my go to for all my baking and cooking needs. I love their products and I feel no one else can beat their quality. I got selected to be part of the #summerstrong campaign with FitApproach and Bob’s Red Mill (BRM) and I was sent some yummy protein nutritional booster samples to try.
What I got:
- Vanilla Protein Powder Nutritional Booster
- Chai Protein Powder Nutritional Booster
- Protein and Fiber Nutritional Booster

Tropical Breeze Smoothie
This smoothie is an excellent source of protein and fiber, 240mg of omega-3 per serving, rich in iron, and vegan! I got this recipe from the little recipe cards I received with my #summerstrong promo package.
- 1/3 cup Vanilla Protein Powder Nutritional Booster
- 1/2 cup Coconut Milk
- 3/4 cup of Pineapple Juice
- 1/2 cup Mango Chunks (fresh or frozen)

Combine all your ingredients in a blender and voila! You have a cooling and summer ready protein smoothie with tons of nutrients.[yumprint-recipe id=’5′] I hope you enjoy this smoothie!
