Adapted from 40-30-30 Fat Burning Nutrition by Joyce and Gene Daoust
1 to 1 1/2 cups water
1 22-gram scoop (about 4 heaping tablespoons) whey protein powder(Beachbody Vanilla)
1 heaping teaspoon organic flaxseed meal
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon good vanilla extract (no sugar, no corn syrup)
1/2 cup organic, frozen peach slices (no sugar added)
1/2 cup organic, frozen whole strawberries (no sugar added)
1 packet Splenda (if you use granular, you may have to use more as it's not as sweet)
2 teaspoons toasted, slivered almonds
Place the water in the blender followed by the next 4 ingredients and buzz for a second or two to blend.
Add the fruits, Splenda and almonds and buzz on high speed until the mixture is fully blended and the consistency of an ice cold milk shake.
If you use 1 1/2 cups of water, this will make a 2-cup smoothie. I usually have 1 cup for breakfast and save the rest for a mid-morning snack. Or share it with someone you love.
1 cup raw baby spinach (or more...I do two big handfuls) 1/2 cup berries of some sort (strawberries, mixed berries...whatever...I do the frozen ones - they seem to add better texture to the smoothie. I also do frozen mango. I bet banana would be good too....) 1 cup 8th Continent Light Vanilla Soy milk (if you're not a fan of soy milk, try NF milk w/vanilla and splenda...or SF vanilla syrup...) The 8th continent tastes like a Vanilla milkshake, I swear...it's sweet and vanilla-y... Other "add-ins" - 1/3 cup tofu (silken, light, firm whatever...it all seems to work) OR whey powder OR cocoa OR any combination of all those...sometimes if it's too thick, I also thin it with either water OR apple juice (sshh...my guilty pleasure...I only add a little!) Blend it up and gulp it down. It looks hideous because of the spinach, but it tastes yummy and is so healthy!Tip: Do not omit the spinach in this drink. Especially if you dislike vegetables, or need to get more veggies into your diet! You can't taste it at all, the berries and vanilla flavor of the soymilk overpower the spinach and you taste a sweet fruit smoothie!!! To your success, P.S.
