This is my go-to SIMPLE smoothie recipe. I was overwhelming when searching on pinterest for smoothies because most of them included a million ingredients and some were SUPER high in calories! This is what I drink anytime I make a smoothie, which is usually my breakfast 2 or 3 days a week. I have a Ninja blender and I love it. It uses 1 base for all attachments (standard blender, single serve cup, and food processor style attachment). Click the image at the bottom of the post for link. I use:
3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk: the brand pictured is my favorite
1/4 cup trop50: I love that this contains no artificial sweeteners, which most “light” or “diet” food items do (it is sweetened with stevia)
1/2 of a frozen banana: when my bananas are overly ripe, instead of throwing them away I cut them up and freeze them for smoothies
3/4 cup dole frozen tropical fruit: I buy this at Sams, it is almost the same price for a pack of 6 bags as 1 bag at Kroger
2 scoops of Vital proteins collagen peptides: This is my favorite protein powder I have ever used. I HATE the taste of protein powders and this one is completely flavorless, you really can’t tell it is in your smoothie because it doesn’t change the texture at all. It also contains collagen peptides that promote youthful skin, healthier hair and stronger nails. It also supports joint health and natural glycine promotes health immune, digestive, and central nervous systems. I buy it on Amazon, click the image below for link!
1-2 drops of doterra slim and sassy oil: this contains ginger, peppermint, lemon, grapefruit, and cinnamon to promote a healthy metabolism, reduce cravings, lift mood, and calm stomach.
