Introduction

During the week, my morning time is very limited and I used to skip breakfast. After refocusing to ensure I ate something filling, healthy and quick EVERY morning, I started to make these. Usually, I make two at a time, one for my wife as well and we will drink it before heading out to our work outs. During the week, my morning time is very limited and I used to skip breakfast.

Ingredients

    Ingredients:
    1 Scoop - Whey Protein Powder, Precision Engineered, 24 gram(s)
    1/2 cup - Milk, nonfat
    2 ice cube
    1/2 Banana fresh (about 3-4")
    5 Strawberries, frozen, unsweetened



Directions

Want to be nice to the blender and give it a second to spin up before it has to crunch hard stuff, so I put the soft ingredients in first.

Add the milk and banana in first, then the whey powder.
Then add the frozen strawberries and finally the ice on top.

Pulse the blender until the sound of ice grinding stops, then blend medium for about 30 seconds.

If you want a smoothie that is a little thinner, you can add 1/4 of cold water.

Makes 1 serving


Number of Servings: 1

    This is great! I also added a scoop of peanut butter. I didn't add strawberries, just because I didn't have them. But this is a great base to get really creative with produce intake. - 4/3/11
