Summertime heat requires something cold to drink. In other words, smoothie season is here!
I usually like to keep things simple after a workout - chocolate milk is my go-to during the summer because it's quick and easy. But when the mood for something fruity strikes, a smoothie is the way to go.
Bob's Red Mill recently sent me a box of goodies to try and in the box was a delightful bag of Vanilla Protein Powder, along with a booklet of smoothie recipes. So I decided to give one a try earlier in the week and voila - I was sipping a delicious smoothie in no time!
Orange Juiciest Smoothie
From Bob's Red Mill website
1/3 cup Bob's Red Mill Vanilla Protein Powder (or another vanilla protein powder)
1 cup orange juice
6oz vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup ice, about 3-4 standard-size cubes
Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a tall glass. Relax while sipping your smoothie, knowing you're giving your body just what it needs post workout.
Tell me: What's your favorite smoothie recipe?
