Blueberry protein smoothie
I know it’s strange to post an ice cold smoothie when it’s only 42 degrees outside, but there is something about a good smoothie, and this my friends, is a good smoothie! It’s creamy, naturally sweetened, is packed with protein, greens, and antioxidant abundant blueberries!! The great thing about this smoothie is you can make it ahead! By freezing all of the solid ingredients ahead of time, you can enjoy a satisfying smoothie any day of the week with half the prep time! I hope you enjoy!
Ingredients (makes enough for one smoothie)
½ cup of frozen wild blueberries (I used Trader Joes and I highly recommend them)
1 frozen banana
Handful of fresh or frozen kale or spinach
1 tablespoon of peanut butter
1 tablespoon of raw hemp seed
1/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla yogurt
1 cup of almond milk (unsweetened)
½ teaspoon of vanilla (optional)
--- Directions to make ahead ---
Add the wild blueberries, banana, kale, peanut butter, and raw hemp seeds to a freezer safe bag and place in the freezer until you are ready to make the smoothie. If you want to make enough for the entire week, repeat this step five times and place the ingredients inside five freezer safe bags.
When ready to enjoy, add the yogurt, almond milk and vanilla along with the contents of your smoothie pack to a high speed blender and blend until smooth! ENJOY!
