During my play run I got a hold of a yummy and nutritious smoothie recipe from a great friend and cast member. I wanted to share because I LOVE smoothies.
1 Cup Spinach
1 Cup frozen strawberries
1 Medium rip banana
1/4 Cup Protein powder
1/4 Cup Oats, whole grain please =)
1 Teaspoon Olive Oil
1 Cup Coconut Almond Milk (or 1/2 Cup Almond milk and 1/2 Coconut milk or Skim milk will do)
In my smoothie I use Advocare's meal replacement powder b/c it's what I got. I was using just a standard whey protein. One scoop= 154 kcals and about 25 grams of protein. Any protein powder you want to use is fine. Change up the fruits if you want as well. I was also using peaches with banana...yum!!
Directions: I process my spinach first in the food processor. Remember, you can use any dark green vegetable here-romaine lettuce, celery, kale, etc. Spinach is tasteless, that's why I like it! Then blend all the other ingredient in a good blender! It yields about 760 ml. That's a little over 3 cups! =)
Brain won't touch it because of the color! =)
I'm working on a man, AKA Brian friendly, smoothie!
