Protein Smoothie

I love smoothies--a good blender is a smart investment!

frozen strawberries
frozen banana chunks
1 serving blueberry Activia yogurt (or any berry yogurt)
1/2 or 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
organic vanilla soy milk
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract (optional)
1 Tbsp. honey (optional)

Note: the quanties of each ingredient will vary, depending on your taste and consistency preferences--I like very thick smoothies that you can eat with a spoon so I use a lot of frozen fruit (this is much better than adding ice because it gives an icy texture without watering it down) and just enough soy milk to process it smooth...

You can also add a Nutiva Hemp Shake Mix, which is a protein superfood drink mix--it has a lot of protein, minerals, antioxidants and fiber!
