I wanted to follow up my chocolate smoothie recipe with a fruit smoothie option whereby no protein powder is used.  For those who don't like the texture of protein powder, one can certainly enjoy a healthy protein smoothie nonetheless.

Greek yogurt can be an adequate source of protein. The blueberries and strawberries are low-glycemic, and only a half banana keeps sugar content to a reasonable level.  Another tip is that frozen fruit will automatically make the smoothie cold and icy, so no additional ice is usually necessary.  But then again, experiment until you discover your desired consistency.  Finally, I find that a liquid other than water makes fruit smoothies taste a little better.  Almond milk or cow's milk are my picks, but soy or coconut milk will be fine too.

  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
