MY CHOICES

Nutrition: Nutrishop Protein Powder: Hydro-Pro Fruit: Kroger Spinach: Kroger Milk: Unsweetened Vanilla Cashew Milk

So lately I have been on a protein smoothie kick! I know what you’re thinking, “a smoothie recipe, really?” but there is more to this recipe than just mixing fruit! I am very stomach sensitive to protein, so I wanted to share this for those who can’t just mix up any ole smoothie and drink it!

First, lets talk about my protein choice! I chose Hydro-Pro Advanced Hydrolyzed-Isolate Whey Protein Formula. To be honest, a good friend recommended this to me when I told him I have a hard time with protein! I wanted something with a great flavor, that mixed well with a smoothie and he didn’t disappoint by recommending this one. It has zero fat, zero sugar, super low carbs, and is gluten free! Its really a great choice for mixing in a smoothie. I love the vanilla flavor on this one, it tastes like you’re mixing in vanilla yogurt!

For fruit, its really your choice! I chose blueberries, strawberries, and bananas! Really you can mix in your favorites, but I love the simplicity of a berry and banana mix! Can’t go wrong with a classic! I also mixed in a giant handful of spinach! Spinach is full of vitamins, and its pretty undetectable mixed in the smoothie. Tons of benefits, with no added taste.

I have recently started to use cashew milk in my shakes and smoothies! It was recommended to me by a personal trainer friend of mine (Giovanni Training). It has a little less calories than almond milk, and is a little more filling! Same wonderful nutty taste. I really enjoy it.

Blend everything together and enjoy!

One tip: I do recommend adding the protein in very last. Blend everything, add your scoop of protein, and blend again. I have noticed if you mix the protein in right away it froths up and doubles the smoothie in size!

I threw mine in one of my Nutrishop blender cups and took it with me to run errands! A great on the go, post workout smoothie!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
