Have I ever mentioned that I typically live off of smoothies, especially in the summer? Now that the weather is getting warmer they are back to being a part of my regular meal planning rotation. I created this smoothie on Saturday, after my 10 mile run. I wanted something quick and simple, to allow my muscles to begin recovering. A few week’s ago I won a sample of My Mix Protein Powder from Megan’s blog, so I wanted to include that as my main source of protein.
I used frozen bananas, blackberries, and spinach to ensure that my smoothie was nice and cold without having to add ice. (I usually just keep a bag of spinach in the freezer.)
As I said above, I used My Mix Protein Powder, which is chocolate flavored. Any chocolate protein powder will work!
And of course, a big scoop of peanut butter!
I love that smoothies are ready to go in less than 5 minutes, and the only real clean-up involved is washing the blender.
This smoothie is perfect post-run, for breakfast, or as a snack any time of day! Hope you enjoy it if you give it a try!
Do you drink smoothies all year or just in the winter?
What is your favorite protein powder flavor to use in smoothies?
