Barb’s Fruit Smoothie

After having one of those at my friend’s house last week-end, I decided to make them myself.  Man, are they good! And good for you too.  And easy to make.  And, as a bonus, you can add this liquid as your H2O for the day… what’s not to like?

Fruit Smoothie

Fill a blender with tap water to the 1.25 liter mark.  Add one scoop of good quality vanilla whey protein (what you would use for one serving), one cup of frozen fruit (no sugar added–I bought a mix of peaches, mango, pineapple and strawberries) and 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries. I then added 1 tablespoon of Chia seeds–great necessary fat.

 

Push the blend button.

 

That’s it!

 

It made 5 large glasses.  With the Chia seeds, the calorie count per glass was 50, including 6 g. of protein, 1.6 g. of good fat, 1 g. of fiber and 8 grams of carbs.  Not bad!

Great dessert. Or breakfast.  Or lunch!
