I just made this thing for lunch and I’d thought I’d share it will all of you.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz soy milk (or regular milk)
  • 2 large spoon fulls ricotta cheese
  • 3 large spoon fulls Greek yogurt
  • One handful of spinach (about the amount of a small salad)
  • One handful of frozen blueberries (your fingers will go purple)
Blueberry Protein Smooth IngredientsCombine everything and put it in a blender.  The spinach might seem weird to you, but it adds a lot of fiber and green goodness and you don’t really taste it at all.  The yogurt (fat free in this case) adds a ton of protein along with the ricotta cheese.  The Ricotta cheese isn’t necessary but it adds some fat and creaminess to the smoothie.  

You could also add/substitute peanut/almond butter to get some healthy monounsaturated fats.

Blueberry Protein Smoothie in BlenderCombine everything up and blend!
Blueberry Protein Smoothie In a GlassOnce you’re done drink it will a straw.  It’s just better that way.
