I recently discovered a new favorite smoothie recipe! I work out, and so I try to eat protein shakes frequently throughout the week, and I’m always looking for a new recipe that doesn’t TASTE like a protein smoothie. This one is a winner!! And, in honor of Memorial day, I used my festive American Flag cup. 🙂 Onto the smoothie…
It is soooo good, I’ve been having one every day for like two weeks now! And, even better, it doesn’t require a ton of ingredients. Now, there are a variety of ways you could do this. I add protein powder to mine, as well as grapeseed oil (you can add any kind of plant-based oil for belly flattening help- only 1 TBSP though!) And, I use natural sweetener and fat free milk to keep it light, but here is the basic gist for what will make a dreamsickle-y smoothie:
-1 Cup Orange juice
-1/4 cup milk to cream it up
-1 tsp vanilla flavor
-sugar to taste
-icecubes to thickness desired. (more ice, thicker smoothie. Less ice, more straw-friendly)
-1 cup orange juice
-1/4 cup fat free lactose free milk
-generous splash of vanilla flavoring
-3 to 4 packets (I like mine sweet!!) of Truvia, Pure Via, some other natural sweetener. Agave syrup is great too!
-Most of a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
-1 Tbsp grapeseed oil (at your grocery store on the oil aisle), or coconut oil. Most of these oils are under $6.
-1.5 cups ice-cubes (I like mine thicker)
