My husband goes for indoor rock climbing twice a week. This started last year and since then he has been super regular with it. I have always been a gym girl but my hubby? He never liked the gym. I dragged him with me to the gym so many times but he would get bored and not want to come the next day. He has always been someone who enjoys playing different sports and doing adventurous stuff so maybe gym was not his thing. Well it took me some time to understand that but I did and since then I have been wishing for him to find something he enjoys doing and he finally has. He never misses his rock climbing. Since he goes after work, he wanted me to come along as well and so I did. It was okay for a while but just like he doesn’t enjoy the gym, I didn’t enjoy the rock climbing. But I found a way to accompany him! There’s a gym right next to the rock climbing thing and I joined that. Smart right? This way we both get to do what we like and I also get to accompany him and he doesn’t have to feel guilty for leaving poor wifey at home until late in the night! ?
And since we both are into this workout routine, we obviously need protein shakes to get going. My favorite these days is this Rose Cardamom Protein Shake and my absolute favorite way to make it by using my new Thermos® #ShakerBottle! It’s so convenient and works like a charm. The folks at Thermos® were kind enough to send me one of these shaker bottles to try and I have to say I am totally hooked. I mean what better than making your protein shake with in minutes, even while you are sitting in the car or walking or doing whatever?
I am always running short on time and the shaker bottle gives me the advantage of making my protein shake even when I literally have no time. The bottle features an integrated and removable stationary mixer that helps evenly blend beverages. I often take the bottle with me in the car while going to the gym. The #bottle has a locking push button lid with an integrated, flip-up carrying loop, which makes it really convenient to carry around. You simple add everything together, shake for 30 seconds and you are done!
My rose cardamom protein shake is inspired from one of my favorite drinks from childhood. Mom used to make a similar milkshake for us (minus the protein powder of course!) and we used to drink it all the time especially during summers. This protein shake is just a twist on that drink! The rose syrup is already sweetened so I did not add any sugar here. You can find this rose syrup at any Indian grocery store.
Considering how cool this #ShakerBottle is, I am sure you would want to win one too! Isn’t it? Well, here’s the good news – Enter the Shaker Bottle Sweepstakes on the Thermos brand Facebook page for a chance to win a Genuine Thermos® Brand Shaker Bottle!
