I don’t know what it is about summer that makes smoothies taste so good!
Probably the fact they are cool and refreshing. I make them for breakfast and sometimes lunch when I’m in a smoothie mood. I’m not very fancy with my smoothies very often. I’m a simple girl when it comes to these.
I also reach for whatever is usually around the house, and that means I always have frozen blueberries, bananas, and sometimes strawberries.
So today, I wanted to share with you my 2 favorite go-to smoothie recipes!
I combine frozen blueberries, a banana, almond milk, and protein powder into my blender. I alternate the kind of protein powder I use.
Sunwarrior Protein– you can find it here. You can also find it at Vitamin Shoppe and some GNCs.
Tone it Up protein– you can find it at Target stores!
**TIP- when blending frozen fruit, I always place it first in blender and pour my almond milk over it and let it sit a minute. Still keeps it frozen but still easy to blend!
From time to time I’ll add a tablespoon of peanut butter in for a little extra. It makes it more like a pb + j smoothie!
This one is a little more simple, but just as tasty and a great way to sneak some greens in!
I combine frozen banana, a couple dates, almond milk, vanilla protein powder, and spinach.
I never taste the spinach, since the banana and vanilla protein powder are stronger tasting, so it’s perfect!
The good thing with smoothies is there are so many options! Play around with different fruits and protein powders (if that’s your thing), and see what you like!
These are my go-to smoothies and they never disappoint me! 🙂
