JSHealth Power Protein Smoothie

Power Protein Smoothie

This smoothie makes a great nutritional breakfast and a delicious on-the-go snack option. I also recommend drinking it in the afternoon when you feel that energy slump coming. It keeps me full and satisfied until dinner time, and will help you control your cravings and your weight!

 

JSHealth Power Protein Smoothie

Serves: 1

Ingredients

  • 1 serving of JSHealth Protein + Probiotics or 2 tbsp LSA mix, or 2 tbsp Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp natural almond or peanut butter
  • 1-2 tsp stevia granules/powder or 3-4 drops stevia liquid
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract/powder (if available)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds or psyllium husk
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries (can omit)
  • 1/4-1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup spinach leaves (can omit)
  • 1/2-1 cup almond or coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup ice blocks
  • 1/2 cup filtered water

Method

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender.
  2. Pour into a glass or bowl and top with desiccated coconut, sliced fruit or nuts and seeds for the crunch factor!

My tips

  • I usually use whey protein. The brand I like is MY Protein from the UK. I like the ‘vanilla stevia whey’. Not everyone does well on whey, but I have always managed well with it.
  • I also use a pea protein called Nuzest when I’m opting for an easier to digest protein (great for vegans too!).
  • I like to add a 1/4 tsp xanthan gum to thicken my smoothies. It’s found at most health food stores.
  • I also use vanilla stevia liquid from iherb.com for extra taste.
