A Gift From Jay To You

by HEAB on January 20, 2010

We interrupt HEAB’s scheduled post of a full day of eats to bring you this news: HEAB died and went to smoothie heaven this morning


After 20 minutes on on the stationary bike mixed with 15 minutes of strength training and some plank holds, I had a date with Jay.

I had pancakes on the brain, but in honor Smoothie Girl Deb’s birthday, I decided to plug in my Vita-Mix and go to town.

Into my blender went:

2 cups water

1 scoop Jay Robb vanilla rice protein powder

1/2 TBSP maca powder

1/3 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 tsp guar gum

Brown sugar cinnamon Frankensyrup…in honor of Deb of course 😉

Lots of ice

Lots of cinnamon

The toppings…oh my gosh the toppings were what made this smoothie. In a very un-Deb like moment, I whipped 1/8 cup of heavy whipping cream (oh yes I did) with my little handy-dandy frother and plopped it atop my smoothie-in-a-mug along with more cinnamon and some walnuts. Now I’m freezing cold and sipping on a mug of hot water, but it was worth every last spoonful of that smoothie!!!! P.S. I have a problem with dairy products high in protein, but I’m experimenting with full fat dairy products like cream and butta. More on this topic later.

So, in honor of Deb’s birthday, I have a gift for all of you from the man himself. It’s time to order your Jay Robb!!!!


You guys know I love Jay’s rice protein powder, but back in my dairy days, I thought his whey was the best tasting out there. What are you waiting for? Click here to order, and then click here to go and wish Deb a Happy Birthday! :)
