How to continually love your smoothies

1) Buy staple ingredients...

The most bulletproof approach that I've come up with over the years to continually love your smoothies... I always keep staple ingredients right on hand that I use for my breakfast blender smoothies (and also after twice/week strength training workouts) are:

skim milk (8-10 oz)

whey protein powder (2-3 spoonfuls, w/ no sweeteners added)

banana or frozen blueberries

barlean's flaxseed oil (2--3 tbs!)

kale, swiss chard, or spinach (one handful)

2) Mix up the smoothies to keep it interesting

Other ideas of ingredients I've use to mix things up - cup of oats, bit of cocoa for flavor, peanut or almond butter, entire avocado, other wildcard fruits you impulsively buy when grocery shopping (both fresh and frozen will do)

Also, most mornings, I take 5-6 capsules of Barlean's Omega-3 Fish Oil (works well in combination with flaxseed oil)

Good Luck!

My Favorite Whey Protein...
by: DaNae


My favorite whey protein powder is Prograde Whey Protein. They use stevia as a sweetener and doesn't have such a strong after-flavor as most protein powders do.

You can find Prograde Protein at:

Hope this helps!

Happy Blending
