A Gift From Jay To You

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

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! :)
