Protein Berry Smoothie it is! プロテイン ベリー スムージー しかない!

Entry #1


ちびっ子目的だぐずり時期に入って、食べる暇がない日なんてある。それは困るんだ! なぜなら、食事をスキップすると、いつまでたってベビー体重、曰く妊娠して太った分の体重余りを落とせない! 困る困る!







クリーミーで、まるでフローズンヨーグルトのよう! よし!


プロテイン ベリー スムージー レシピ

  • アーモンドミルク 1カップ*
  • 氷 1カップ

Hey beautiful people, isn’t it hot these days? I guess rainy season is almost over in Tokyo and we are to face usual oven heat for another couple of months.

The Little One has just ended his second Leap and got even more clingy, so he won’t get off my hands at all! Well well, that s where Ergobaby comes in handy! laugh
Sometimes the kid is taking too much attention (never too much for him!), so taking food for me became a real challenge. But hey, skipping meals is never an option as it won’t help me to say bye bye to baby weight.

So here I thought, what can I make quickly, like a snack, that is nutritious and healthy at the same time. And cold.

Smoothies are great for all the seasons, and when I was working out before pregnancy, that was one of my favorite fueling snack before/after workout.But now, as I still can’t workout in gym or have full mean workout at home, I don’t burn that much calories, which means smoothie recipe has to be revised.

First, no bananas. Oh gosh you have no idea how banana addicted I am, but calories first! Frozen berries like raspberries, strawberries and blackberries are wonderful option to go low but nutritionally high.
Second, protein. As I want my smoothie to be loaded not only with carbs. Protein powder is easy to add and flavored ones like cocoa or vanilla ones add to the taste nicely.
Last but not least, to keep it healthy, I like switching cow milk for almond milk here and there, plus it gives nice smooth structure to the smoothie. Win win!

Here is the recipe:

Protein Berry Smoothie

  • Almond milk 1 cup (add more if smoothie appears too thick)
  • Ice 1 cup
  • Frozen berries mix (I use raspberries and strawberries one) 1 cup
  • Cocoa flavor protein powder – 3 measure spoons ( I use Savas so 3 spoons are one serving)
  • Honey or maple syrup 1 tbsp (if you want it a bit sweeter)
  • Mint to serve

Mix all the ingredients in food processor – simple as it is! To avoid protein powder from flying around the kitchen, add it directly to milk and stir a bit.

Pour into one big jar to enjoy alone or into two glasses to share some healthy wibes with your loved ones! Don’t forget to decorate smoothie with mint, as it adds to fresh flavor!

The smoothie came out thick and almost like ice cream or frozen yoghurt, a real treat I must say! Could not wish for more!

Try it out, you won’t regret I promise!
