Jeanette’s California Sunshine Protein Smoothie
A smoothie is an excellent choice if you have to have breakfast on the go! If you are picking up a smoothie at the gym or local smoothie shop, be sure to ask about all of the ingredients that are being added so you don’t get one filled with sugar and a few extra hundred calories! Some of my favorite meal replacement shakes and supplements that are packed full of nutrients are available from Isagenix Isalean Shake (www.isagenix.com), Living Fuel Rx SuperGreens (www.livingfuel.com), and Udo Erasmus’s Wholesome Fast Food (www.udoerasmus.com). But it only takes a few quick minutes to make a shake at home. Not only will you know exactly what’s going into your shake, it’s also bursting with flavor that you won’t find in any powdered mix!
About 1 cup ice
1½ cups water
1 ounce vanilla whey protein (The goal is to get 25 to 30 g rams of protein, so you may need more than 1 ounce depending on the brand.)
½ banana, sliced
½ cup orange juice
1 cup mixed berries
Put the ice and water in the blender first and top with the vanilla whey protein, banana, orange juice and mixed berries. Blend on high speed for 1 to 3 minutes, or until smooth.
