SPICY LIME SHERBET MARGARITAS
Score some major points at your Big Game party with this spicy and refreshing twist on an all-time classic drink using BPI Sports Best Glutamine™ (alcohol is optional). It’s much better to have a beverage with something healthy in it as opposed to those high fructose corn syrup additives contained in most traditional margaritas mixes. This margarita will help you minimize muscle breakdown and improve protein metabolism for recovery, immune system health and glycogen replenishment (vital for restoring energy levels especially after a long day of Football fun!).
- 2 scoops of Best Glutamine™ Lime Sherbet
- 12 oz. water
- 1 tbsp of jalapeno
- 2 tbsp coconut nectar
- 1 squeezed lime juice
- 1 lime cut into thin slices
- Kosher sea salt, large granules
- Orange colored sugar sprinkles
Rim the glass with coconut nectar and dip it in the salt and sugar mix. Place 4 lime slices at the bottom of the glass and add ice. In a bullet blender, mix the first 5 ingredients. Pour into Glass. As the foam begins to rise, drizzle some more coconut nectar over it. Enjoy!

Season the chicken breasts with N’orleans Cajun seasoning. Heat sauce pan to high heat, once hot add the coconut oil. Cook the chicken breast for 1 minute on each side, leaving the inside raw.

Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and pull it apart. In a bowl, add the chicken, edamame, green onions, culantro, red onions, almonds, Greek yogurt and turkey bacon. Mix together using a large spoon until well blended.
Separate the slider buns, then place 2 strips of avocados on each. Using an ice cream scoop, add one scoop of the mix, then top it with the other bun. Add a skewer through the middle to keep it stable. Repeat the process for the rest of the sliders. Enjoy!

- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup coconut oil

Combine flour, protein powder, stevia, 3/4 cup chocolate chips, cocoa powder, and baking soda in a large bowl. Whisk egg, yogurt, milk, vanilla extract, and coconut oil in another bowl until smooth; pour into chocolate mixture and stir until batter is just blended.
Fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips.

VANILLA CARAMEL SWIRL PROTEIN PANCAKES
Does the word “insanely delicious” come to mind? Because that’s exactly what these protein packed pancakes are. With 135 calories and 9 grams of protein, start your Big Game Day strong with the perfect protein pancake recipe.
**Recipe yields 8 pancakes.
- 2 scoops of BPI Sports Whey HD™ Vanilla Caramel
- 1.5 cups Hungry Jack Complete Wheat Blends Pancake & Waffle Mix
- 3/4 cup of water
- Smucker’s Sugar Free Caramel Sundae Syrup or Walden Farms Caramel Syrup
- Cool Whip
- Coconut spray oil
- Walden Farms Pancake Syrup
In a mixer or using a wooden spoon (don’t use a blender), mix the first three ingredients. If the mixture is too dry, add more water. Too wet add? Add more pancake mix. Then, heat a medium sized frying pan to medium heat.
For an average sized pancake, use a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop some pancake mix and pour in the center. Do not move the scoop as your pour, so the mixture distributes out evenly forming a natural round pancake.
Swirl a line of caramel syrup on top of the pancake and cook pancake until you see bubbles, then flip and cook for 1 minute. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop a ball of cool whip on top of the pancake and drizzle some more caramel and pancake syrup.
