Secret Super Smoothie

You would never guess what two super healthy ingredients are in this protein smoothie. My kids like to call it Molly's Smoothie, because our friend and babysitter recommended we try it and now they are hooked - they ask for it. Thanks, Molly!

As with any smoothie, you can change the ingredients based on what you like - so you use milk or juice instead of water, or add a banana or some mangoes if that pleases your taste buds!

INGREDIENTS

Smoothie with two super ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (or 2 scoops)
  • 1 cup water (you may need more or less depending on the consistency you prefer)
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 tbsp organic sugar, splenda or natural sweetener (optional)
  • Secret Ingredient #1 (2 cups)
  • Secret Ingredient #2 (1/2 -1 tbsp)

Blend together first six ingredients in a blender. When blended, add in secret ingredients and d continue to blend for 10-15 seconds. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

  1. Great video and tips as always. Never thought about adding spinach. I also like to use a new strawberry flavored protein powder for added taste.

  2. Thanks, Paul! Kale is another great addition – or any green for that matter. Most of us don’t enough of those nutrient-rich greens in our diets, so this is a great way to do so!

  3. Hi Randa!
    Ran across your site a few weeks ago and love it!
    I have begun P90X and am compiling recipes for my healthy eating endevour..I am so going to try that smoothie tomorrow AM..
    Thanks for being available and “free” to view…
    God bless you.

  4. Thanks, Amber! Rock it with P90X – let me know how it goes! I am enjoying doing the blog and am thrilled that people are reading and enjoying the recipes! Thanks for visiting and if you have friends who you think might enjoy the blog, too, please help me pass it on.

  5. Never had thought of adding the spinach to the smoothie. We do the flaxseed already, but I’ll try that. I do blend it up and add spinach to spaghetti sauce and soups…
    You need a hand held blender. I’ve got the same blender as you, but hate washing it…the hand held is what I use to make all of our smoothies and to blend soups. It’s one small piece to wash and with soups, I don’t have to transfer it to the blender :-).
    Thanks for your recipes. I’m enjoying many of them!!

  6. Outstanding scoop. I applaud the way you write . I just tagged your website and Ill make sure to check in regularly.

    take care
