Valentine’s celebration is a great opportunity to think about loving and nurturing our body while we create a stronger bond with that very special person we love. That is why I thought that a lovely Cranberry Strawberry Shake was in order to start this day with the right foot. Drinking a healthy protein shake done with fresh seasonal strawberries, Greek yogurt, a hint of honey and the new Cranberry Almond Fiber One® Protein cereal not only sounds delicious but could be romantic too. I invite you to prepare this easy cranberry strawberry shake on Valentine’s morning, spark loving conversation with your significant other while both nourish the body with something good and satisfying. Let’s cook!
- 6 strawberries cleaned and cut in halves
- 1 cup of Cranberry Almond Fiber One® Protein cereal
- 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup cold of natural organic cranberry juice
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 2 whole fresh strawberries to garnish
Preparation time: 15 minutes. Serves two portions (approx. 12 oz each). You will need a blender, measuring cups and spoons, and two champagne flutes.
Place all ingredients in the blender and mix well. Serve immediately, garnish with a fresh strawberry and drink cold. This shake is very easy to do; you can replace the Greek yogurt with any kind of milk of your preference. Integrating the new Cranberry Almond Fiber One® Protein cereal provides ten grams of protein as well as a very nice texture to the shake.
I recommend serving the Cranberry Strawberry Shake on a champagne flute to add a romantic flare and help start conversation with that special someone about the plans for your special Valentine’s celebration, provoke small talk about your desires and express your feelings towards each other. Kissing before leaving to work makes us feel loved and ready to start the say on a positive note. You can start this ritual on Valentine’s and then keep it up rest of the year by spending few minutes in the morning with your husband or special person in your life to bond and make your relationship even stronger.
The new Fiber One® Protein contains 10 grams of protein when served with dairy and 20% of the daily value of fiber we need for a healthy life. Join the conversation on Fiber One® Facebook page to learn more about special offers and recipes.
