smoothies

I’ve always love a good smoothie but I’ve never ventured to make one myself. It seemed time consuming, the consistency seemed like it took skill, and I never knew what to put in them. Until now! I was lucky enough to meet a nutritionist during my time with Moms in Training that laughed off my concerns about smoothie making and shared with me just what it takes to make a nutritious meal in a glass! I usually make these for breakfast, but some evenings we can’t resist having one for dinner, too! I don’t feel guilty because it is packed with great nutrition and fills you up fast! Enjoy this great meal on the go or at home!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen fruit (I usually use organic strawberries, mangos or blueberries!)
  • 1 cup milk (cow, soy, almond, or whatever you like or have available works)
  • 2 Tbsp flax seed (I usually get the meal – its cut finer)
  • 1/4 cup whey protein (I get mine at central market, whole foods or spouts in the bulk section, just the plain version.)
  • 1 banana

Mix away

Once you add all of your ingredients, blend away!! Simple. The frozen berries act as your ice, too. Smooth and creamy every time! Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Happy Week Friends!
