If you’re looking to shed a few pounds, this smoothie is a great meal replacement option for breakfast or lunch. The extra protein from the shot of protein powder gives you a burst of energy and helps hold you over until your next meal.

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup(s) milk, fat-free (may substitute soy or almond milk)
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) fruit of your choice, fresh or frozen
  • 1 scoop(s) protein powder whey, (may substitute pea, rice, or other protein powder)*
  • ice cubes 5-Mar
Preparation:
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy.

In the winter months, fresh fruit options may be limited, so take advantage of affordable, frozen fruit — it’s perfect for smoothies. Some of my favorite fruit combos include: banana and mango, strawberry and peach, and triple berry (raspberry, blackberry, blueberry).
