Smoothie

I like to eat real food, but for efficiency, I sometimes do smoothies.

Here’s my standard recipe:

  1. 1/3 cup Trader Joes mixed berries (frozen)
  2. 2/3 cup water
  3. 1-2 scoops undenatured whey
  4. 1 scoop branch chain amino acids (powdered)

Here’s a great infographic from Precision Nutrition on how to make your own super shake. It has some great ideas:

It reminded me about three whole food options to add to my smoothie, (1) nuts/seeds, (2) leafy greens and (3) yogurt.  I’ve used pumpkin seeds, spinach, and yogurt in my smoothies before, and I like them both.  It doesn’t change the texture or taste much, and I feel better about getting real food in my smoothie instead of just weird supplements.

Here’s my new smoothie:

  1. 1/3 cup Trader Joes mixed berries (frozen)
  2. 2/3 cup Trader Joes soy beverage
  3. 1-2 scoops undenatured whey
  4. 1 scoop branch chain amino acids (powdered)
  5. 2 Tbsp raw pumpkin seeds
  6. 1/3 cup loosely packed spinach
  7. 2 big spoonfuls of plain yogurt
  8. Half a banana

What do you put in your smoothie?
