Pirq Up! It’s National Milkshake Day

This morning I got a text from a friend that read, “It’s National Chocolate Milkshake Day, let’s grub!”


As I was texting her back to make a time to indulge in this most important national day of deliciousness, that annoying logical side of my brain kicked in and reminded me that a thick, creamy, decadent chocolate milkshake will surely kill my diet for the week.


Never one to give up easily when it comes to treats; I decided to see if Google could provide me with an excuse to satiate my now growing craving for that sinfully sweet chocolate drink. Jackpot! According to a recent study, a chocolate milkshake is actually a better post-workout drink than many sports drinks and it even helps build muscle!


I popped on my Pirq app to see where I could snag a deal on a milkshake and I ran across a 30% off deal at Emerald City Smoothie. So not only did we find milkshakes, we found healthy milkshakes! My friend an I hit the gym downtown then grabbed Chocolate Champs at Emerald City Smoothie.


Man, with workouts like this pretty soon my milkshake will bring all the boys to the yard.
