Summer is here in a BIG way, it was triple digits yesterday, hopefully you have some outdoor fun planned: a few picnics in the park, beach or lake days, maybe a road trip. The ready to drink protein shakes and bars Premier Protein® makes are perfect ways to take a protein packed meal or snack with you. Tip: Toss a shake in the freezer the night before, put it in your bag or backpack in the morning and mid-adventure you'll have a frosty protein pick-me up.
A few months back, I announced Premier Protein®'s Bananas and Cream flavor. I'm excited to share the news another NEW FLAVOR will be joining the Premier Protein® Shake line-up. Beginning in July, be on the look-out for Premier Protein® Caramel Shake! 30g of protein, 24 vitamins and minerals and just 160 calories, available at select retailers nationwide, including Walmart. I'll give you a shout and let you know when I get my hands on one to try. Mmmm Caramel.

and here's a Fun, Summer Recipe to try...
Shelly's Life's a Beach Premier Protein Pudding Jars
6 - 4 oz. jars (or clear cups)
2 Premier Protein® Bars, chopped (any, I used Premier Protein® Honey Caramel Protein and Fiber Bar)
2 cups Premier Protein® Vanilla Shake (Ready to Drink RTD)
1 - 1 oz. small package Sugar Free Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix (dry)
Optional: 1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Coconut Syrup or a few drops of Coconut Extract
Beach Sand: 1/4 cup Ground Blanched Almonds (aka Almond Flour)
Beachy Decorations: Paper Umbrellas, Sugar Free Candies (Lifesavers, Gummy Peach Rings, Gummy Bears, Gummy Fish), Dried Apple Rings, Graham Bears.
Spoon a layer of chopped protein bar on the bottom of each 4 oz. jar. Set aside while you mix up the protein pudding layer.
Pour the chilled shakes, pudding mix and syrup flavoring into a shaker bottle. If you choose to add a flavoring put one less Tablespoon of the shake.
Shake for 3 minutes or until thickened slightly and place in fridge for about 5 minutes to thicken further. Spoon the thickened protein pudding on top of the crumbled protein bar base.
Top with "Beach Sand" and beachy decorations. You can make these a day in advance, refrigerate and just don't put the toppings on till you serve them or let everyone create their own beach scene. Be sure to choose age-appropriate decorations for those you are sharing with (watch harder candies/choke hazards with little kiddos.)
I hope you enjoy them and like Premier Protein® shakes and bars they are also portable so if you want to take them to your 4th of July picnics, parades and firework celebrations, just screw the lid on and go. Don't forget a spoon!
