Earlier this year, I made a commitment to lead an active lifestyle! I’m striving to make smart food choices and get some exercise in on most days of the week! However, everyday life is very busy and I don’t always have time for marathon sessions in the kitchen. I generally stick to recipes that are quick & convenient! In order to fuel my active lifestyle, I love enjoying the new Pure Protein Plus Bars. Since my mornings could always use a little energy boost, I’m going to share with you today my favorite shake that’s nutritious and energizing! This Energizing Mocha Brownie shake will surely get you out of bed in the morning! This shake contains plenty of protein so it helps to keep me on track! Thanks to the Pure Protein Plus Bars, you too can #KeepOnTrack!

Before I share the details of how I made this shake, I want to share a fun sweepstakes that you can enter! Use the widget below to enter! Good luck, friends!
Here are the ingredients you’ll need: brewed coffee, 1 Pure Protein Plus Bar in Mocha Brownie, vanilla almond milk, nonfat yogurt, cocoa powder, and cinnamon powder. You can optionally also include whipped cream & chocolate shavings, for garnish.
Add all these ingredients into a high-powered food processor.
Process until smooth.
Pour into a glass and top with some whipped cream.
To create gorgeous chocolate curls, simply use a peeler on a piece of chocolate.
Doesn’t this drink look delicious? What a fun, festive way to start the day!
Thanks to the Pure Protein Plus Bar, this shake has a delicious mocha brownie taste! I really appreciate that these bars are free of artificial sweeteners, gluten & GMO ingredients.
Don’t those chocolate curls make this beverage look so appetizing?
Mocha Brownie is not the only flavor available. Other flavors of the new Pure Protein Plus Bars include Cookies and Cream, Mocha Brownie, Apple Pie, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough! Which one would you like to try first?! I’ve really enjoyed them all!
All of the new Pure Protein Plus Bars are nutritious and flavorful. They have an impressive amount of protein (20-21 grams) and a sizable amount of fiber (15-16 grams). I also like that they’re very low in sugar!
You can feel good about each bite from these bars. Did you know that the texture of the Pure Protein Plus Bars is absolutely perfect? It’s rich & delicious! It even has real food bits mixed inside!
Incorporating these bars into my daily routine is one way I try to make smart food choices. I always have one of the Pure Protein Plus Bars with me when I head to the gym. In fact, my gym bag essentials are my water bottle, music player, ear phones, and a Pure Protein Plus Bar.
In addition to working out regularly, I also try to consume plenty of fruits & vegetables every day. *Tip: When you opt for seasonal fruits (like blueberries & blackberries right now), you can enjoy produce that’s super fresh & affordable!
Also, I try to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Sometimes I’ll add some fruits or herbs into my water to give it a lovely flavor boost!
Another way I try to take care of myself is by trying to get adequate sleep at night. As a mom of two young kids, I don’t always get as much sleep as I’d like, but I do strive for 8 hours most nights. I like to place my eye mask in the refrigerator for a few hours before bedtime. When I place it over my eyes, it provides a calming, cooling effect. I also love to use my lavender linen spray on my pillow in the evening. The scent of lavender is always so relaxing!
