This Blueberry Vanilla Smoothie is another delicious smoothie recipe with some added protein. It makes for an excellent breakfast or any other meal replacement.
This isn’t a really sweet smoothie, but it does have a nice touch of sweetness so it’s also great for satisfying those sugar cravings. With the added protein and the antioxidants from the blueberries, this can also be used to refuel after a good workout.
One of the best things about smoothies is the ability to customize them to your liking. Or, the ability to substitute items if you are in a pinch and run out of something.
Just be sure to watch the nutrition label of the substituted items and adjust your final carb count.
The recipe below calls for unsweetened almond milk which has 1 carb. If you were to substitute that for regular 2% milk you would be adding 11 carbs.
You also want to watch very carefully what protein powder you use. I found Isopure Protein Powder which is a low-carb protein powder available on Amazon for about $15 and I love the flavor. The Tahitian Vanilla has 2 carbs per servings, compared to Pure Protein which has 9 carbs. These are just a couple examples.Print
¼ cup full fat yogurt
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
½ tablespoon coconut oil or MCT Oil
¼ cup frozen blueberries
1 scoop isopure protein powder
1 cup Ice
Another great thing about smoothies is how easy they are to make and this recipe is no exception.
Add all ingredients except for the ice to a blender and blend well. Once all ingredients are well blended, add the ice a little at a time until you have reached your desired consistency.
This can be a great addition to your diet whether you are doing, Keto, Atkins or eating gluten-free
