  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 Serving
Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (may substitute soy or skim milk)
  • 1.5 cups fruit of your choice, fresh or frozen
  • 1 scoop whey protein powder (may substitute pea, rice, or other protein powder)*
  • 3 - 5 ice cubes
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).


*Note: For celiac disease, check the protein powder label to ensure it’s gluten-free.
