Strawberry Vanilla Smoothie is one of my favorite breakfast smoothies packed with protein and nutrients to get you and your family moving in the morning! Strawberries, bananas, protein powder, almonds, oats and honey make this smoothie a perfect meal that will fill you up for hours.
During the spring and summer, smoothies are basically an every day menu item for breakfast or lunch… sometimes even dinner with a cold sandwich like the Ham, Cucumber and Sprout Sandwich with Spicy Mayo. This Strawberry Vanilla Smoothie is just so refreshing and packed with protein and other nutrients to make it a solid, well balanced meal.
The recipe given makes about 4 small servings, you can easily make 2 large smoothies or cut the recipe in half.
So, what kind of protein powder should be used? This is up to you completely. I do recommend vanilla for the flavor and protein powders vary so much in taste and texture that you really have to just use what you like and are used to. Personally, I like the Body Fortress brand because it isn’t as chalky as other brands and gives a nice balance of flavor for a smoothie.
