Protein Smoooothie

Soooo…I bought a NINJA…so you know I had to blog about my protein smoothies!

Simple way to get in one of your meals that provides 30 grams of protein AND tastes like a dessert! 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop of whey protein (or protein of choice).  I use Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard Whey (Vanilla Ice Cream)
  • 1/4 cup non fat Greek Yogurt (I used plain, but you can use Vanilla or flavor of choice)
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk (coconut milk, skim milk or 1% if you have to)
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup of ice cubes or crushed ice
  • 1/2 cup of frozen berries or mangoes…really any fruit you want.  I like to use frozen, but you of course can use fresh berries.  Frozen adds to the texture.
  • 1 tbsp of milled flaxseed (optional)
  • approx 1 tbsp of Splenda (more or less to taste) OR sweetener of choice.

Directions:

Add to blender or single serve container in any order… and pulse to blend thoroughly!

Simple!  Enjoy!!!

**You can make this the night before and have it ready to go.  It loses the frozen aspect…but it’s still a delicious and easy way to get in quick protein!**

Also fun for kids…I made a chocolate smoothie for Kayla.  2% milk, some dark chocolate chips and a few ice cubes 😛  Happy Mini-Me!! 😀
