I wrote about my first smoothie attempt in this post. The flavor was good but the texture was not. I tried another smoothie, this time with less protein powder and more fruit.
This is what I tossed in the blender this morning:
1/2 cup diced peaches
1/2 cup strawberries
2 C. fresh spinach (loosely packed)
1 C. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1.5 T. MLO Super High Protein Powder
Calories: 176 Carbs: 23 Protein: 16
The result? Even though it had more fruit, it was less fruity tasting and not as sweet. (Bananas make a big difference, apparently.) Cutting the protein powder in half reduced the nasty gritty/chalky texture the first smoothie had but it was definitely less filling. Combined with a proteiny breakfast (ham & cheese omelet) this made a good meal, though.
