Whey Protein Smoothie Snack Recipe

Shake recipe, makes approx 9 cups:

1 cup milk (or substitute- almond milk, coconut milk (1/2 cup), soy milk (not my favorite) rice milk)
1 cup juice (sometimes I use a scoop pf frozen concentrate + 1 cup water)
1 cup yogurt
1-2 bananas ( I freeze brown ones for smoothies and microwave them for 30 secs to peel)
1/2 avocado (this cuts the sweetness of the protein powder and makes it creamy)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 scoops whey protein powder
1/2 cup frozen berries

Blend well. Keep in fridge in blender. I give it a quick blend before serving each time. My kids also love it.

You can mix it up from here. Today my smoothie has 4 kiwis, 1 banana, no milk, and raspberries. Use this as a basic guideline and get creative!

*Use the protein powder as just a fortified ingredient, not a base.
