Peachy Protein Smoothie recipe

Weekends at our house means it’s time to bust out the Bamix and blend up some fruity goodness.  Last weekend it was the raspberry protein smoothie, but this time I went a bit more orchardy and created this peachy protein smoothie:

yes, I’m aware that the smoothie matches my counter…

 

At the last minute I decided to throw in some chia seeds (especially after researching all their health benefits), which made the smoothie a wee bit thicker than I thought it would be… but still totally delish.

 

Here’s the recipe:

1 peach

1 nectarine

1 banana

2 scoops BioTrust protein powder, vanilla cream flavour (low-carb, all-natural, and hormone-free… so good)

1/2 cup Greek yogurt

1 cup almond milk

2 tablespoons chia seeds

 

What to do:

Blend it all up in a blender, or use a handheld mixer.  Keep all the ingredients out in case you feel like making any last-minute adjustments (too runny?  Add more fruit.  Too thick?  Add some more almond milk.)

The beauty of the humble smoothie is that you can prepare most of it the night before:

ready to hang out in the fridge overnight

 

… and the next morning when you’re done your workout (or sleep-in), just add the frozen ingredients (if any), and blend away.  Magic.
