I’ve been drinking a smoothie every afternoon. Before that I’d only have 2 meals a day, one in the morning (a giant breakfast) and I wouldn’t be hungry again until dinner (a smaller meal). Then I started to really workout and as a result, I got hungry. A smoothie fit perfectly into the afternoon.
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup fresh berries or other fruit of choice
- High protein yogurt (I mix half of the high protein yogurt from Aldi’s and half of the local grocery brand)
- 1 scoop Ascent vanilla whey protein powder or your favorite protein powder (best tasting protein to me)
- 1 scoop Naked Creatine
- 1 cup (approx.) your choice of milk or juice
I love berries so I’m always making a banana-berry mix. The banana is not only for flavor but it helps thicken the smoothie a little. Sometimes, when I have fresh mangoes around, I’ll use a mango/peach fruit blend with mango/peach yogurt. The flavor options are endless!
