Smoothies are a great way to pack in great vitamins, minerals and protein on the go!
The great thing about smoothies versus juicing is you get the whole fruit/vegetable instead of just the juice, which leaves out the fiber rich skin! Also smoothies are easier to make taste delicious and fill you up!
A quick recipe I like to do is a mixed fruit & peanut butter treat. I drink this mid-morning sometimes when its not lunch but breakfast hasn’t quite held me over or as an afternoon snack.
- 2 cups of frozen fruit
- I used a great value back of frozen blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and cherries
- 1 cup of skim milk
- 1 packet of stevia or sugar
- 1 small spoonful of peanut butter ( 1/2 tbsp)
Directions: add ingredients & blend J it’s that easy!
I say use stevia or sugar because one packet of sugar would only add around ~30calories not that detrimental and aspartame is beginning to show some not so great side effects- but that’s for another article entirely.
You don’t need ice because the frozen fruit will give you the smooth frozen texture you’re wanting without chunks of ice or the watering down of taste!
