Kelly is religious about her green smoothie prep. I like to do something similar, but I haven’t gotten past green in the green drinks. I do however like chocolate and peanut butter in mine!
The tasks are simple and similar to Kelly’s.
I like to line up 5 Rubbermaid containers half cup size (Please comment on what else you can use these for!) along with the blender. This will yield 5 extra meals and one for the moment!
- 1 scoop Whey protein powder (or plant, meat or egg protein, if you can’t do whey)
- 1 tsp peanut butter
- 1/3-1/2 banana
- 1/4 c. frozen raspberries
- 1 tsp golden flaxseed
- Pinch of cinnamon, ginger, cayenne
1/2 c. coffee or water
Start with the whey and measure into each container and follow with the first items and finish off with the spices. Freeze the containers. When you are ready to use (and for the blender pak), put ice and coffee or water in the blender and whirr! Start slow, gradually increase the speed. If necessary, add a little more water.
Serve. If you’re on the run use your favorite to go mug. If you like to indulge yourself,, I as I do, serve in your Fav Costco wine glass. The flax doesn’t stick and it’s easy to clean.
My fitness pal says it is 252 calories. Not bad to start the day! And you won’t have a mid-morning slump! Or enjoy for lunch or snack to add a little fruit and protein to your day.
