Strawberry Power Smoothie

strawberry power smoothie

I use the Bella Cucina Rocket Blender to make my smoothies.

So for a minute this was my summer breakfast smoothie, greek yogurt for protein and nut butter for a little bit more protein. And also the nut butter smooths out the taste, I think. I also put creatine just to see if anything will happen and flaxseed oil to cover my omega-3s. But then I switched up my food plan so that I eat eggs for breakfast, and now this is my post-workout smoothie. Six of one!

I listed the ingredients in order, so you can measure it all out with the same spoon and not dirty unnecessary spoons. I just use a regular spoon, not a measuring spoon.

about six or nine frozen strawberries
1 tsp creatine, optional
about a half cup of greek yogurt
2 Tbsp peanut or almond butter
1 Tbsp flaxseed oil, optional
almond milk
a squirt of honey

Put the strawberries in the blender cup. Spoon in the creatine and then four heaping spoonfuls of yogurt, which is about a half cup. Rinse the spoon and put in two spoonfuls of nut butter. Then three spoonfuls of flaxseed oil, which is about a tablespoon. Then pour in almond milk to fill the cup, and a squirt of honey to sweeten it a bit. Screw on the cap, stick the cup on the motor base, and blend for 30 seconds. Then take it off the base and give it a little shake to get anything that's stuck on the top of the cup. Blend for another 20 seconds or until the smoothie is churning freely from top to bottom.
