I had no idea how wonderful smoothies really can be. I’ve been chugging whey down the gullet since my weightlifting days. I worked at Planet Smoothie in college. But not until I realized that I was hard-pressed to eat the kind of nutritional punch I could blend into one big cup…did I really start to love the smoothies.
Of course, Ilana gave me the start with the Green Smoothie from her Boost Plan. But I have been experimenting and trying new things over the last few months, and I have found THE smoothie that I love. And I wanted to share with you.
Things I love about this smoothie:
1) It tastes pretty darn good
2) It’s packed with good stuff (protein, fiber, vitamins!)
3) I literally feel amazing after I drink it. Placebo or not… that’s the good stuff. Especially after a hard workout.
So, here’s the recipe for my favorite smoothie! (It makes a huge cup.)
SBM’s Favorite Smoothie
1 cup natural coconut water
7-8 frozen strawberries
1 small banana
1 tbsp. Chia seeds
1/2 tbsp. hemp seeds
Huge handful of raw, baby spinach
1 scoop KleanAthlete Isolate
1/2 or 1 packet of Truvia
Blend and enjoy. Add water or ice if needed. I find that the frozen berries act as ice cubes 🙂
I did a blog review of the Klean Athlete line awhile back, but I am now on my third container of the Isolate. I love love love the stuff. Mostly, because it is completely allergen-free… it’s flavorless and without anything other than Whey Isolate. Really good stuff. Big fan because I am allergic to wheat, corn and soy—and it’s tough to find a good whey without a soy product or binder somewhere in it.
