SMOOTHIE TIME: FRUIT AND PROTEIN

Something quick and easy for after a workout!

FRUIT AND PROTEIN

FRUIT AND PROTEIN

INGREDIENTS

1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup almond milk
1 or 2 scoops protein powder

PREPARATION

Blend fruit and milk. Add protein powder and more milk and blend again. Boom!

If I made this smoothie again, I would thaw out the fruit beforehand so the texture isn’t quite so thick when blended. I ended up adding more milk to balance it out. I added the protein last because I expected it to cause extra thickness but the frozen fruit presented the same problem.

The protein powder I used (shown above) is very, very sweet. I used 2 scoops for extra protein, but the result was double sweetness. It was like a tasty dessert at first but the flavor was too much after a while. This smoothie was also extremely filling. I pride myself in being able to put away a disgusting, shameful amount of food, and I could barely finish this.

Overall, I like the simplicity of this smoothie. It’s perfect as a quick post-workout meal.
