January 27, 2012Today’s 25,000 Pound Challenge Tip: Master a “do-it-yourself” protein smoothie for a convenient meal option.
Having a quick and easy meal replacement smoothie recipe in your back pocket comes in handy for times when you’re eating on the run…or simply feel like mixing things up. My homemade Power Protein Smoothie works perfectly as a stand-alone breakfast or lunch. It has plenty of filling protein to curb your appetite, plus lots of colorful frozen berries for fiber, vitamins, minerals, and natural sweetness. To make it, simply blend together ¾ cup milk (skim, soy, or almond), ½ banana, 1 cup frozen mixed berries, 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder, and 3 to 5 ice cubes until smooth and frothy. One generous, 2-cup serving provides 305 calories and 31 grams protein.
