mixed berry protein smoothie

mixed berry protein smoothie

I've been making variations of this smoothie for quite some time, but I never really measured out ingredients or thought about how much protein it actually packs. Without counting the fruit, we're talking almost 15 grams of protein per serving! I was pretty impressed!br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-r69mLQCVHXg/UPd9ScYkhI/AAAAAAAADpk/ZQguHIlkVU/s1600/DSC0015web.jpg" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-r69mLQCVHXg/UPd9ScYkhI/AAAAAAAADpk/ZQguHIlkVU/s1600/DSC0015web.jpg" //a/divbr /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"/divIt's really delicious, and quite thick too. I prefer to use frozen fruit over fresh because it adds bulk and makes the smoothie super cold without having to add ice. Perfect for these hot January days. (Which P.S.- I am NOT happy about.)br /a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-4VT2x8VKIeI/UPd9SY9fMbI/AAAAAAAADpo/DnIxdZCcoHg/s1600/DSC0004web.jpg" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-4VT2x8VKIeI/UPd9SY9fMbI/AAAAAAAADpo/DnIxdZCcoHg/s1600/DSC0004web.jpg" //aAdding more fruit on the top is optional, but I use a few frozen berries to garnish and then I end up stirring them in. They slightly thaw as you're slurping this baby down, so once you reach them they are basically the perfect texture; still cold & slightly icy :))br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9UEQRM28yJE/UPd9SK-YZYI/AAAAAAAADpg/KZgIc3M6ROw/s1600/DSC0072web.jpg" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9UEQRM28yJE/UPd9SK-YZYI/AAAAAAAADpg/KZgIc3M6ROw/s1600/DSC0072web.jpg" //a/divbr /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /I also like to sprinkle a bit of ground flaxseed on top, because, well, why not? It's a good source of omega 3's, packs some protein, and contains fiber. I'm obsessed with it! I add ground flaxseed to oatmeal, baked goods, smoothies, yogurt, granola, etc. For reference, I get the organic ground flaxseed by Bob's Red Mill :)br /br /table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="float: left; margin-right: 1em; text-align: left;"tbodytrtd style="text-align: center;"a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-l8nKnkBbx3c/UPdvufy4duI/AAAAAAAADpQ/ac-8EUjEGY/s1600/mixed-berry-smoothie-recipe-spreadwebbigger.jpg" style="clear: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" target="blank"img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-5iJ4iGt9ZkU/UPd9SzS8dJI/AAAAAAAADps/eOAHBnh0wKE/s1600/mixed-berry-smoothie-recipe-spreadweb.jpg" //a/td/trtrtd class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"ia href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-l8nKnkBbx3c/UPdvufy4duI/AAAAAAAADpQ/ac-8EUjEGY/s1600/mixed-berry-smoothie-recipe-spreadwebbigger.jpg" target="blank"click on photo to enlarge/a/i/td/tr/tbody/tablebr /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /a href="http://simplecravesandoliveoil.blogspot.com/2013/01/mixed-berry-protein-smoothie.html#more"Read more »/a
