A smoothie for you too

Good morning!  Or good day, or good evening, I suppose.  I'm blogging in real time today, so I'm saying good morning.

I promised you guys a smoothie recipe a week or so ago, and today, a smoothie recipe you will get.  The proportions of everything on this recipe can be scaled... Ammon's portion is about double mine, simply so that he hits his caloric needs.  The recipe as follows is for a woman following the Revolt Now Fitness level 1 diet.

Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie

Instructions for making the day of:

To a blender add:
  • 1 scoop vanilla flavored protein powder
  • 1 T milled flax
  • 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 banana
  • 2/3 cup sliced frozen strawberries
  • 2-3 cubes ice
  • 8oz water
Use the "ice crush" setting on your blender for several pulses, until it looks like your ice and other ingredients are all broken up, and then set on a "high setting for several minutes until frothy.  This makes a GIANT smoothie, so get out your favorite large glass, and enjoy!

For making in advance:

Add all ingredients except the water and ice cubes to a freezer bag.  Label as needed, then pop into freezer.  When you're ready to use, dump the bag into the blender jar, add water, and you're ready to blend!  An added bonus to this method is everything is already super cold, so there is no need for extra ice!

Ammon likes these so much, he's requested them a second week in a row.  They really are very tasty, and quick to prepare!  If you give them a try, let us know how they turn out.

Have a great day!

  4. Lordy be, we love making smoothies in our house. We used to add protein powder, but haven't in ages. We do love to throw in an assortment of veggies to ours though - carrots, lettuce, spinach, whatever. =)
