Smoothies Are GOOD!

Oh how I love smoothies.  And I must admit, Jasmine has acquired my fondness.  Anytime we are offering up a reward -- whether it be for behavior at school or keeping their room clean -- Jasmine always requests a trip to Smoothie King, while Cash is all about McDonald's.

Not until recently have I attempted to make them on my own.  So easy and much more economical.  My favorite is strawberry-banana, I have been making myself one for lunch everyday for the last couple of weeks.  Now I just need to find a few more recipes, cause Jasmine digs the grape.

I mostly eyeball it at this point, but here is the recipe I began with:

Strawberry-Banana Protein Smoothie

  • 1 scoop vanilla Whey Protein 
  • 1/4 cup strawberries, frozen
  • 1 banana, peeled and frozen
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  • a squirt of honey
  • cup of ice 

It is oh-so-yummy!
