You may have noticed from my past few Baby Bump posts, that I have been on a bit of a smoothie kick lately. Not sure why but I have been loving how filling & cooling and just tasty a smoothie snack can be. The last time I posted about smoothies on the blog, many of you were surprised to learn that I was new to the whole frozen-fruit-smoothie thing! Crazy, right? Since then, frozen fruit has been a staple in my grocery store purchases every week.
So for this creation, I was inspired by Alison Sweeney’s Summer Smoothie, which was shown a while back on the Rachael Ray Show. I added a few of my smoothie staples – flax seeds & chocolate protein powder – and this is such a tasty treat, its crazy. It tastes like dessert – like a blueberry chocolate milkshake, which is amazing.
- 2 cups fresh or slightly thawed frozen blueberries
- 1 6-ounce container low-fat vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon flax seeds
- 1 scoop of your favorite chocolate protein powder
- 1 tablespoon agave, more or less to taste
How To: Combine all ingredients in a blender. Add agave, to taste. Blend until desired consistency.
