So I have joined forces with fitnessformommies.net, as a regular contributor! I’m so excited and that means good things for you, my With Love from the Vine readers as well! Every Monday, I will feature a healthy recipe to be featured on fitnessformommies.net. This week is all about the smoothie!
I love smoothies as a quick and easy breakfast, snack, or even lunch. Make sure to add in some protein powder to give your smoothie some staying power in your body and you are golden!
I have tried many protein powders, and this new one, Plant Head, fits the bill. For only 110 calories you get 15 grams of protein! That puts this whole smoothie at only 250 calories! Plus, if you use soy yogurt its vegan and gluten free. You can’t go wrong here. Plus it is such a pretty color!
Cherry Blueberry Smoothie
- 15 cherries
- ⅓ cup blueberries
- ½ cup vanilla yogurt (use dairy free if vegan)
- ½ c light almond milk
- 1 scoop Plant Head protein powder
- 5-6 ice cubes
- Place all ingredients in the blender and blend.
Another quick and easy smoothie!
You will need frozen berries, protein powder, milk, yogurt, and a lemon.
I like to add the lemon juice to wake up the flavors a little bit. Totally optional.
Place all ingredients in a blender,
and get a really cute assistant to help you blend it up.
Another breakfast idea for all you on the go moms (and dads!)
Yogurt Berry Smoothies
- 1 cup frozen berries
- 1 6 oz serving size greek yogurt, plain or vanilla
- 1 scoop of protein powder
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice, optional
- ½ cup milk
- Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend.
I have three little kids, and I’m sure I am just like you when I say my mornings are crazy. Getting everyone up, dressed, and fed takes up the whole morning! Enter chocolate banana peanut butter smoothies!
Fuel for mom (or dad)!
It tastes like a peanut butter cup. Very quick and simple and filling.
Just throw all your ingredients into a blender and give it a whirl.
Who doesn’t love chocolate for breakfast???
Pour into a cup,
Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie
- 1 cup of milk (I used almond milk)
- 1 peeled frozen banana
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1 serving (scoop?) protein powder
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend.
- Pour into a cup.
P.S. This is the protein powder I like to use. 23 grams of protein in one serving for only 120 calories!
Plus, its delicious. Especially in my chocolate banana peanut butter smoothie!
