Hit me up with your smoothie recipes, especially ones high in protein!
3 kale leaves, with thick stems removed
1/2 c parsley (stems and all)
1 cup frozen fruit (mango, berries, whatever you like)
2 packets sweetener or sugar
1/2 c water
blend until smooth - makes 2 servings, less than 100 calories per serving
This so delicious if you like the taste of parsley (i love parsley...tastes fresh and springlike...so this works for me). :)
8 oz. glass of milk (or almond milk)
1/2 mango, papaya or orange,
1/2 ripe banana
1 T coconut oil
1 T rolled oats
8 oz. of milk
1 T peanut butter
2 big tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp agave syrup or honey
8 oz. of milk
2 tsp almond butter
2 tsp agave syrup or honey
8 oz. milk
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
juice from 1 orange
1 tsp vanilla extract
We often add a scoop of whey protein powder as well.
I should add that I don't actually measure...so these could be off. I just add the milk at the end, slowly, until its at a consistancy that I like!
Mmm! Sounds good!
I've tried adding spinach and kale to smoothies before but I find I always get chunks...it must be my blender? What kind do you use?
My smoothie "recipe" is some spinach, a banana, an orange, another random piece of fruit, 1-2 carrots, some almonds, some flax seeds, some water to get it to the desired consistency. (I have a Vitamix so everything is PULVERIZED.) I have some chia seeds on order, though, and will be trading the flax for those when I run out of flax.
My MIL gave me a Vitamix for Christmas and smoothies have been very smooth since then :)
Even with it though, I add my greens last and blend for a good minute to get every last bit. My old blender took a bit more time to get smooth.
Most of the time, I try to get the giant box of organic baby spinach. I have no idea whether or not that helps though :/
I like Sunwarrior's rice protein a lot, and will buy it when there's a deal, but Nutribiotic is way cheaper, and you can still get an organic version. I like vanilla protein powders the most.
My favorite smoothie is:
Spinach, banana, peach, crystallized ginger, 1/2 scoop protein powder, vanilla, almond milk. I usually use a few drops of stevia, but I've been throwing a date in lately--figure I could use the extra iron, fiber, and calories.
I found this link: 5 tastey looking green smoothie recipes! Add some protein powder and they'd be a pretty awesome breakfast!
