kmbumbee190618 :  I also love meeting fellow lovers of BN! I got excited when I saw Protein Hot Chocolate in your post! haha

The pudding mix helps with both flavor and consistency. It makes it smoother, but also gives it a really good flavor. I also really like mixing it all up minus the ice in a shaker cup, then putting it into a plastic cup and putting it into the freezer (stirring it every 20-30 min or so) until its a shake like consistency (normally an hour and a half is perfect for me). It makes it so much better (more flavor since the ice doesnt water it down and a much smoother consistency), but a lot of the time I just don’t have enough time to wait. 

I have not tried the root beer BCAAs, but have been curious about them. I’ve heard they are good mixed with PBC for a root beer float flavor. I have tried the apple cider and guava necterine BCAAS, and I definitely prefer the guava necterine. Apple cider is good, but I’ve gotten burnt out on the flavor since it’s kind of a wintery/christmas flavor. 

You should check out http://www.masonfit.com if you want to try baking with protein. He posts tons of recipes for cookies and cakes and donuts and other sweets using protein powder. All of his recipes I’ve tried have turned out better than any other protein recipe I’ve tried. He’s a BN sponsored athlete so most of his newer recipes use one of their flavors. If you follow Sarah Bowmar or Bowmar Nutrition on IG, she shares his recipes sometimes. His lemon protein cookies are AMAZING – they use PFC but you could use PBC. His PHC donuts are also really good. He also talks about flour modifications on most of his recipes so if you want to make a lower carb version or a lower calorie option, he tells you how you would swap for using almond or all purpose flour. (he has tons of good recipes for acutal meals too!)

kmbumbee190618 :  Thanks for your honesty on the BCAAs. I wondered how they would be because it seems like most BCAAS do have that tart aftertaste that you’re talking about. I will probably stick to the guava necterine because they are really good! I also tried the preworkout last night. Holy smokes I got a heck of a good workout in, but it took forever to wear off and I had trouble sleeping. Guess I need to take less of it next time!

Souzie :  can you freeze the kale and/or spinach?  I didn’t know if that would freeze well.  I am just getting into this.

qtrfan :  Yep, they freeze just fine! smile  If you’re short on time, you can buy bags of frozen spinach and kale.  I did kale last week and this was my batch all ready for next week using romaine, spinach and collard greens..
