I use this as a meal replacement/weight management drink. It’s super nice and quick when you are on the go, and it’s not one of those meal replacement drinks you have to force down. Whenever I make myself one of these, I end up having to make two batches, one for me, and one for my kiddo’s.
As you can see my toddler sitting, eagerly awaiting his smoothy 🙂 It is super yummy and keeps you full for hours. Plus, it feel like your letting yourself have a treat when really you are watching what your eating, or in this case drinking.
- 7 frozen or fresh strawberries, if you use fresh strawberries you need to add about 4 or 5 cubes of ice
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, like vanilla whey protein, 1 scoop is equal to about 1/2 cup
- 1/4 cup apple juice
- 1/4 cup skim milk
- 1 cup cold water
Add banana, strawberries, ice if using fresh strawberries, and protein powder to your blender. Then add your milk, apple juice, and water.
