Strawberry Lemonade Protein Muffins

It is officially warm here in the south. And by warm, I mean you walk outside and the sun makes you feel like you're melting and the humidity makes you sticky. When I feel hot and stick, I usually crave an ice cold strawberry lemonade :) A tall, cold glass of strawberry lemonade. Mmmmmm. That is when I thought to myself that a muffin with those flavors would be so delicious. I have always been fond of any type of berry with lemon and lime flavors. Blueberry and lemon YES. Strawberry and lemon YES! Raspberry and lime YES! Yes yes yes! I suppose there's not much to say now to convince you of my love towards these flavors. I hope you're a fan too and if you are, these are a must make!
