“Berry Nice” Protein Workout Smoothie Recipe

Of course, nothing is as tasty as a McDonald’s Real-Fruit Smoothie, but if you are at your house, a home-made protein smoothie after a workout or run is the perfect way to build your body, and at the same time, make you feel full. I don’t really measure the ingredients, so I’ll give you approximates. All I try to do is add healthy ingredients into the blender on the “Smoothie” setting. The following recipe makes about two full pint glasses. Here are my personal favorite ingredients:

  • 1 handful (about 1 cup) of frozen, non-sweetened, mixed berries (any kind… blueberries, raspberries, strawberries…)
  • 6 ice cubes (the frozen berries also lend to acting as ice)
  • Skim Milk (2 cups). I add it as I blend — if it’s too thick, add more milk.
  • 1 scoop Whey Protein Powder (about 2 tbsp)
  • 1 heaping tbsp reduced-fat peanut butter or almond butter
  • 2 pinches of whole oats (the kind you use to make oatmeal… instant, regular… whatever)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed (can use flaxseed oil too)

In a blender, blend all ingredients until all ice has dissolved, adding half the milk initially and slowly adding more as needed until you get a good consistency. Have fun experimenting on adjusting ingredients and amounts – make it your own. It only takes about three minutes to make and is the perfect ending to a great workout – I just finished running 20 minutes and am happily sipping the one in the photo as I write this post! Enjoy.
– Yours in Fun Fitness, Mike
