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.
- Prep time
- Total Time
- 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
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).
