Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Remove skin and seeds from apple if using fresh.
  2. Add milk, then add the rest of the ingredients and blend well.

Tips for enhancing your protein smoothie:

  • Use water instead of milk for fewer calories.
  • Change the number of ice cubes to change the thickness of the smoothie.
  • Add 1/2 tsp xanthan gum for extra thickness.
  • Add ½ cup of low-fat cottage cheese for a milkshake consistency or 1/3 cup of non-fat Greek yogurt. If you are vegan try substituting tofu for cottage cheese.
  • Add a tsp. of caramel extract instead of vanilla.
