breakfast smoothie

Crush two ice cubes in the blender.

Then, add:
  • 1 small frozen banana (3 oz.), cut in 1" or smaller pieces--1 pt.
  • 1 tube Stoneyfield yogurt (the ones that are packaged for kids)--1 pt.
  • 4 oz. skim milk or Silk vanilla soymilk--1 pt.
  • Blend this until it's pretty smooth. Then, while the blender's going, add:
  • 1 Tbsp. or one scoop (whatever the serving size is) unsweetened protein
  • powder--1 pt. (I use either rice protein or Genisoy Ultra XT Plain protein
  • powder.)
Blend this until the protein powder is incorporated and pour out into a 16 oz. glass.

You can substitute 1 pts. worth of any frozen fruit, but bananas are nice b/c they are sweet and make a creamy texture. This recipe has at least 15 grams of protein, more if you use the
Genisoy brand protein powder.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
