Here are 3 great and easy to make recipes using Arbonne Essentials Protein Shake Mix. (Key Ingredients: Vegan Protein Blend, Coenzyme Q10, Alfalfa, Ginseng, Flax Seed)

 

 

 

8 Oz. Fat Free Cream Cheese
1 Cup Arbonne Chocolate Protein Mix
3 Cups Whole Oats
1/2 Cup Truvia
Dash of Cinnamon (to taste)

1. Combine truvia, cream cheese, protein mix, and cinnamon in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer on high until its smooth.

2. Add the oats and mix with the mixer until you have a fairly homogeneous mixture.
Note if it is too thick add a 1/4 cup of milk or water

******************************************************************************

5 Tablespoons Organic Peanut Butter (chunky or smooth)
1/2 Cup Oatmeal or Whole Grain Hot Cereal (uncooked)
1/2 Cup Oat Flour (double the dry oats if you do not have oat flour)
1 1/2 Cups Arbonne Chocolate Protein Mix
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Tablespoons Flax Seeds (optional)
1 Cup Non-fat Dry Milk
1/2 Cup Water (you may need to add more)

Modifications: Use vanilla protein mix and replace 1/4 cup of the oat flour with a variety of nuts, seeds, or dried berries.

1. Combine dry ingredients in a medium size bowl and mix well.

2. Add peanut butter and mix – the mixture will be crumbly and dry.

3. Add water & vanilla.

4. Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, mix everything until a dough forms. The dough will be sticky.

5. Spray an 8×8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Spread dough into pan using a clean wooden spoon or spatula that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

6. Refrigerate a few hours (or freeze for an hour) and cut into 9 squares. Wrap bars individually in plastic wrap or store in covered container between sheets of wax paper and keep in the fridge.
