Strawberry Protein Smoothie

DON'T MISS A SMOOTHIE!


  Today I'd like to share with you my favorite Protein Smoothie. I'm trying to eat healthier, and this is my smoothie of choice right now!


I have a feeling I'll be making smoothies ALL the time, especially with the summer weather. I love that smoothies are a great healthy meal, but they also have very little prep and clean-up time.

 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup milk (I prefer almond milk, or almond coconut milk)
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 scoops strawberry protein powder (here's what I use) 

Directions
Add everything to the blender and blend until smooth. Depending on how thick you like it, you may want to add more milk to thin it a little. ENJOY! 








Quick Cleaning Tip:
Wash your blender right away! This will keep the smoothie from drying and hardening on to the blender!

What's your favorite smoothie? 
I'm always on the look out for new smoothie flavors to try!!

  1. I have a smoothie every morning :) Usually with some spinach and whatever fruit I have and chia seeds. Yum. Definitely good tip about washing the blender right away! I just got a NutriBullet and love it.

  2. I've have yet to get brave enough to add anything 'green' to my smoothies :) But I'm going to give it a try at some point! But the chia seeds is a great idea! I love them!!

    1. The only place I have found the Almond Coconut Milk is at Safeway...but granted...I have VERY slim choices of where to shop for food :) Walmart or Safeway for the most part :(

  7. Even my Hubs loves smoothies. I haven't tried it with the shaklee. I get my Almond Milk (unsweetened vanilla) at Walmart and Giant Eagle. The brand I use is Silk though.

  11. I don't have a favorite smoothie. I haven't ever made one. I am also starting to be more aware of my diet so I may have to consider buying a good blender.

  14. “I love that smoothies are a great healthy meal, but they also have very little prep and clean-up time!” - Now, that about sums up the good things about smoothies. :) And another one, you can feel like a professional health advocate when you come up with healthy smoothie recipes that even children can enjoy. That sounds great, doesn't it? Haha! Anyway, I like the fact that you put some protein into this smoothie since we need that as much as we need the vitamins and nutrients fruits and veggies provide. Good job and thank you!
