Hey friends! Hope your day is off to a strong start — and if not, here’s a protein-packed smoothie to fuel you up The fit people at All-Pro Science sent me some of their protein powder to give a try — so I whipped up a chocolate-peanut butter-banana smoothie to test it out. Blogging is a tough job.

Not too shabby, right? I tried out the Bavarian Chocolate flavor, and it tasted pretty dang good.
