Blueberry Cake Protein Shake and A Winter Park Boat Tour
October 10, 2012 5 Comments
This morning I actually got up and went for a run. It started off a bit rough, but ended strong. Not such a bad run and it felt good to get it out of the way.
When I got back, I mixed up this UNBELIEVABLE master piece. It tasted like Blueberry Cake. Legit. I couldn’t get enough of it.
|1 Frozen Banana||1 Cup Frozen Blueberries|
|1 Scoop Cake Batter Protein Powder||1/2 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder|
|3/4 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk|
That simple. Just put it in a blender and blend until smooth. I am beginning to absolutely love this cake batter protein powder because I feel like the options are endless with it. You can really turn anything into a sweet cake flavored treat and mold it into what ever kind of cake flavor tickles your fancy.
Anyways, the rest of the day was just work work work. When I got back, Brent and I went on a fun little tour! Not too crazy or anything but entertaining. It was the Winter Park Boat Tour. It leaves just about 2 blocks away from my house and is 12 bucks a person. You just ride a cute little boat around the lakes in Winter Park and learn all about the history of the area.
To be honest, being from Boston, I didn’t think that Orlando had such a rich little history, but it turns out Winter Park is more influenced by the north than I thought!
We run past these little canals connecting the lakes and it’s really just so pretty.
Some of the little interesting facts about Winter Park:
- A whole bunch of land was purchased by a man who lived in New England. He named it Winter Park in hopes of drawing more northerners to the area for the summers.
- A few years later, the northerners in the area decided they needed to build a school and Mr Rollins donated 50,000 dollars of the 100,000 needed to start the school, and it was named Rollins College.
- Mr Cornell was actually a huge contributor to the school and has several buildings named after him. This is the same Cornell that start Cornell University in upstate NY.
- Rollins is the only university in Florida to have a Noble Prize winner alumni.
My favorite fact of the ENTIRE ride centered around this house:
This was the first Mr Roger’s Neighborhood! THE MR ROGERS attended Rollins college and was assigned a dorm. But he couldn’t fit his grand piano in the room so his parent found a room in this house for him to rent out. Definitely room for his piano in here.
I LOVED Mr Rogers as a kid! I always think of my brother when I think of that show. It was definitely a fav of his too.
WIth that, I leave you with a good night!
What was your favorite show as a kid??
There are so many goodies that we forget. Hey Dude. Pete and Pete. Angry Beavers. Ren and Stimpy. I really think that cartoons of today have NOTHING on what we had back then.
