Back in July I posted about trying Thrive, the supplement and lifestyle health support system. Their combination of daily supplements, Daily Lifestyle shakes, and their amazing Thrive Premium Lifestyle DFT patches have really helped boost my energy levels and make me feel more awake, more productive, and more motivated. Now that I've been using them pretty steadily I can report back and say how pleased I am with the results I've been seeing. It's made a real difference in lifting my mental fog and keeping me focused and energized!
Their protein powder is fantastic for making quick, nutritional shakes and desserts guaranteed to give me a burst of energy and make me feel like I've eaten something extravagant at the same time- all while sticking to my dietary limits. I really like being able to treat myself to something delicious and do something awesome for my body (and my mental state) at the same time!
The recipe I'm sharing today has become one of my favorites. Whenever I am feeling like a little something extra or need a sweet-but-healthy pick me up I throw the ingredients into my blender, put in a packet of Thrive Daily Lifestyle Shake powder, and I'm good to go!

I love to add a little whipped cream to the top of mine just to give it that extra bit of oomph. Presentation is everything, and as decadent as this tastes, the whipped cream really puts it over the top! By the time I've finished this shake I'm energized, feel like I've really treated myself, and I've been super kind to my body. It's the ultimate feel-good dessert that's good to eat any time!
