Johns Berry Blast Energy Smoothie!

Saturday, January 26, 2013

So based on my own likes and dislikes i wanted to find a new protein smoothie i could make at home that would hopefully replace the atkins ones i currently use in the morning at breakfast. A little more prep will be on my part yes... but doable right! I love the atkins ones but they have tooo much Artificial sugar for my liking and i want to start cutting back on that! Heres the Recipe:

This has a great protein Source, Great Fiber Source and Lots of Caffine to kick-start my Day... This calls for a Veresimo Espresso Pod shot but if u have another style of POD machine like KCups or Tassimo or a regular espresso machine u can use that instead just pour a nice clean shot!

My Berry Blast Energy Smoothie: (In a Blender, Mix)

1 Cup of Fresh or Frozen Berries (I will use Frozen 4 Berry Mix - Strawby, Blueby, Raspby, Blackby)
3/4Cup of Liberte Plain 0% Greek Yogurt
1-2 Tbsp Ground Flax Seed
1 Scoop of GNC Whey Protein Vanilla Flavored Powder
1 Double Shot Verisimo Starbucks Espresso Roast
1 Tsp of Honey (for Diabetics like me use 1 packet splenda)

Blend Well! Add Ice before blending if desiered or Water or milk 1/4 cup if needed to make it smoothier!

    yah i wanted the fiber and yes i needed the espresso for energy it had 4 types of berries! I think i might switch the berries for banana! next time and take out the flax and just use it as is and have metamucil after for the fiber! LOL!

    John... instead of flax seed.... maybe flax seed oil? Not fiber but a mufa. You have to keep it in the fridge and it does not last long but much nicer in a smoothie. Expresso and blueberry? Hmmm.
