Simple high protein chocolate blueberry smoothie

29 Jun

I looked up a bunch of smoothie recipes that would meet the protein/carb criteria, and decided they were all too complex or didn’t taste good enough to be worth the hassle. I wound up with a simple favorite: a chocolate blueberry protein smoothie. The blueberries give you an excellent antioxidant kick.

Ingredients:

1 cup skim milk

1 scoop EAS 23g Whey Protein Chocolate Powder (see notes below)

1 cup frozen blueberries

Prep:

Put milk in blender. Add chocolate. Add blueberries. Blend until the blender is making a constant vortex. Pour and enjoy.

Notes:

The EAS mix is the whey protein kind, not the soy protein kind. I got the whey protein at Sam’s club. In the 10 week program, I easily went through the 2lb tub, with smoothies most days.

The correct packaging looks like either of these two (one is a 5lb bag, the other is a 2 lb tub):

This is the Soy protein which seems to me to just have less protein, more carbs and more calories, and not worth it.

I like it with blueberries best, though I sometimes use the cherry blend frozen fruit or strawberries. I got generic ones at Hy-Vee:
