I enjoy a high protein smoothie EVERY SINGLE DAY, usually as a sweet and nutritious mid afternoon snack around 3-4pm. A nutrient dense snack like a smoothie helps keep me stay active and energized until dinner. It also helps me stay full until dinner and prevents me from over-indulging at dinner or after dinner.
Below is my go to recipe for my go to daily smoothie! You will LOVE it.
1 medium banana
5-7 frozen strawberries
1 scoop of PE Science protein powder (the peanut butter flavor is my favorite!)
2 Dates (be sure to remove pits!). I get them at Costco.
1/2 cup liquid (milk, milk alternative or water)
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream (optional) SOOOO GOOD
1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter or nut butter (optional)
Blend all the ingredients together (this is my Ninja blender!) and enjoy!
