Strawberry Almond Protein Power Smoothie
Strawberry Almond Protein Power Smoothie is my new go-to post workout snack. Fresh strawberries, homemade almond butter, fresh pineapple and yogurt. Healthy, good food that you can take on-the-go.
I love adding Greek yogurt into my smoothies to add natural protein which also makes the smoothie richer and more satisfying. I don’t always have time after my workout to prepare anything substantial to eat (which is important). I’m usually trying to get myself showered and out the door for errands or appointments. I need something I can eat while I get going. I just add all my ingredients to my high powered blender and I’m ready to go in minutes along with my smoothie.
I love the protein elements of this smoothie, Greek yogurt and almonds and almond milk. If strawberries are not in season, I like to use frozen strawberries. This then eliminates the need for ice cubes.
The almond butter used in the smoothie, I make myself (you don’t have to). Roasted almonds blended until they turn into butter, that’s all it takes.
