I never really follow a recipe when I am making my smoothies! But I do put in some basics. I use almond milk (when I use the protein powder), but you can use skim or low fat milk, as well. With 210 calories and 25 grams of protein, this can serve as a good alternative for a quick breakfast meal for a morning commute by car or by rail. Vary it with an assortment of your favorite fruits.
Here are some examples:
8 ounces of unsweetened almond milk (or any of the sub milks or water)
1 scoop of unsweetened, vanilla flavored whey protein powder (I use Whole Foods 365 brand)
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt (regular or Greek); it adds a little more thickness to the shake
1Tbl of chia seeds or ground flax seeds
1/2 to one cup of fresh or frozen blueberries or strawberries
DIRECTIONS: Blenderize and go!
If you don’t want to use a protein powder, use more Greek Yogurt and (cow or soy) milk for added protein (1⁄2 cup plain Greek yogurt + 8 oz milk = 20 grams of protein)
