Very Berry Goes Green
I’ve been seeing so many green smoothies around the blogosphere (check out the links to those three blogs for awesome recipes!) and wanted to try one myself. So I pulled out the Bender Blender and Heather’s best friend Jay Robb:
I was excited to try the strawberry flavor in a fruit smoothie. It did not disappoint!!
Ingredients (serves 1):
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 packet Jay Robb strawberry egg white protein
- 3/4 container of fresh blueberries
- 1/4 cup frozen cherries
- 1/4 cup frozen berry medley (strawberry, raspberry + blueberry)
- 5 ice cubes
- My “something green” – a big ol’ handful of spinach!!
You know the drill – combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth! This recipe made A LOT of smoothie! I was able to fill one tall glass and 3/4 of a small glass!
I decided to top it with some Bear Naked yumberry goji currant granola a la Caroline.
It was heavenly. It didn’t have the green hue because the other fruits overwhelmed the spinach, which I liked because I couldn’t even taste it in there! It was completely sweet and not chalky – that’s the great thing about Jay Robb. He couldn’t be chalky if he tried! The granola added a nice “crunch” to the first few sips. All of this for 370 calories, 13g fiber and 37g protein? I’ll take it!
