For the past two years, I’ve had a smoothie each morning for breakfast. I’m not the best about eating real food before noon so a smoothie works really great for me as it’s easy to throw together before I head out for work and I drink it at my desk while checking my email in the morning. I’m very much a creature of habit and had enjoyed the same smoothie (orange juice, soy yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, a liquid vitamin blend and protein powder) for the past year or so. Recently I had to change-up the formula when Whole Soy & Co. products disappeared from all grocery store shelves when their production facility suddenly closed its doors. I’m not a fan of the almond or coconut based yogurt so I omitted the yogurt and added some new items to the mix. I’m very happy with the changes and love the new smoothie!
Here’s are the ingredients:
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup carrot juice
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
1/4 cup frozen raspberries
1/4 cup frozen strawberries (usually 3-5 berries depending on size)
2 TBSP Alive Max Potency liquid multi-vitamin
1 scoop NitroFusion vanilla protein powder
Put all the ingredients into your blender in the order listed and blend on high for a minute.
Yields about 18-20 oz and is less than 400 calories.
