1 whole small banana
1 T. cashew butter <--my FAVE
1 T. almond butter
1 large peach
1 c. frozen cherries
1 c. raspberries, or other fresh fruit

These can be added to the above...sort of like condiments.

Mix and match and never get bored with breakfast again!

Nobody told me I can have smoothies everyday???? everybody just told me how many calories it contains and how unhealthy it is for my diet. I did not believe it but did not consume it either. Lol. I feel like a moron right now. anyways from tomorrow smoothies it is and i will post a recipe too later.


The recipe I posted has about 270 calories, and I have one for breakfast on most days. I don't know who's telling you that it's unhealthy; like any other meal, it's all about the ingredients you choose.


Unhealthy smoothies are those you might purchase from a chain smoothie place, like SmoothieKing. "Smoothies" can be very unhealthy because they tend to have a lot of sugar and additives. Most of the recipes posted here are protein shakes, not smoothies. Simply put, if you use protein powder in your mix, you have a protein shake. Otherwise, it is a smoothie.

Either way, making them yourself is the healthy option. Do not purchase premixed "smoothies" or protein shakes or those mixed at the over-priced specialty stores. Make them yourself and you control what goes into them. The recipes are endless! The less processed the items used the better. Go for organic and natural.

I have been on the Food Lover's Fat Loss System and this is one of the smoothies I have daily. I don't like ANY artificial sweetners, so my recipe doesn't have any, but the orignial recipe calls for 2 packets of whatever artificial sweetner you like.

Mocha's Kisses Smoothie- 226 Calories- The perfect morning snack


Swiss Miss - No Sugar Added Hot Cocoa, 0.5 envelope
Coffee - Brewed from grounds, 1 cup (8 fl oz)
Body Fortress - (C) Super Advanced Whey Protein - Vanilla Corrected*, 33 g (1 Scoop)
Spring Valley - Ground Flaxseed, 1 tablespoons
Mccormick - Ground Cinnamon, 0.5 tsp. (2.3g)
Mccormick's - Pure Vanilla Extract, 0.5 tsp. (5mL)


Sucralose (Splenda) is in Swiss Miss no sugar added and Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey protein

So if you are actually avoiding Artificial Sweeteners...this has some

My favorite right now is Zrii Achieve ..
2 scoops Vanilla Achieve 130 calories and 18 grams protein
1 cup Vanilla Almond Plus 70 calories and 5 grams protein
Carb master yogurt (various flavors) 60 calories and 8 grams protein
I also add ice and a little water depending on the mixture I want

This makes a HUGE shake and has 260 calories and 31 grams of protein ... I have to set my clock to eat my morning snack cuz Im full.

At night if Im below my calories (or go for a walk) I do
2 scoops of Chocolate Achieve 110 calories and 18 grams protein
1/2 cup Vanilla Almond Plus 35 calories and 2.5 grams protein
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons PB2 45 calories and 5 grams protein
Ice

190 calories and 25.5 grams protein
Tastes like a reeses peanut butter cup and satisfies my chocolate craving

I am very unoriginal. I just put a scoop of chocolate flavored powder in milk. = chocolate milk except with lots of protein lol. I love it just the way it is, although some of these recipes sound good.

I use MOMs Organic Market "Show Me The Whey" and the taste is so light, you don't even realize it has protein powder. I blend a handful of ice with each shake as well.

Here are a few I have made this week:

Banana Pudding Shake
1.5 scoop protein powder (PP)
8oz Almond Milk
1 small banana
1 tablespoon of jello instant pudding banana flavor sugar free
5 Vanilla Wafers

Butterfinger Shake
1 scoop PP
8oz Almond Milk
1 tablespoon of peanut butter
1 tablespoon of jello instant pudding chocolate flavoring sugar free
1 tablespoon of jello instant pudding butterscotch flavoring sugar free

Pina Colada
1.5 scoop PP
1 11.2oz Naked Coconut Water
1/2 - 1 cup of chopped pinapples with juice
2 tablespoons of shredded coconut

Enjoy!

How many oz. of a shake do you all do?
July 19, 2012 8:59 PM
If I eat badly enough to need a protein shake on a given day, I honestly just pour in the artificially flavored, artificially sweetened whey into some water. Best to escape with as few calories as possible. laugh

My vegan version is:

2 tablespoons nutiva organic hemp powder (the 15 gram one, 60 cal)
1 cup almond milk (60 cal)
half a banana (55 cal for half a large organic banana)
2.5 tablespoons organic raw cacao powder (60 cal, antioxidants)
1 tablespoon organic ground flax (30 cal)
5-6 ice cubes

blend.

OH MY! YUMMY!

My base is 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder, 1 cup of almond milk unsweetened (or 1/2 cup sweetened to control calories) and a tsp of matcha powder. I then either add in natural PB (1/2 serving) or 1/2 a frozen banana. If I have fresh baby spinach, I add 1/2 to 1 cup of it since it adds nutrients without affecting the taste.

Thanks for the ideas!

My shake is not as fancy as some or your's, but here goes.

1 frozen banana
1 cup skim milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 packet sweet-n-low
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Makes 1 serving
196 calories

Very filling!
