I just made a yummy whey protein smoothie. See it pictured above? ;) Just kidding, that’s something I found on google.
I really did make one though! And it’s muy delicioso.
It’s a fruity whey protein smoothie, and I’ll tell you the ingredients, and some of the nutritional facts.
- 1 banana cut into chunks
- 1 or 2 scoops of whey protein (according to brand)
- 3 large strawberries
- 1/2 cup of skim milk
- 1/2 cup of ice
- 1/2 cup of yogurt
And that’s all! It’s very simple. I actually had to use 1% milk, because my sister and I had to compromise. Here are a few nutrional facts (if you have a myfitnesspal, this is the stuff it asks for):
The whey protein I used is the Jillian Michaels vanilla whey protein, and it’s at Walmart for $10.
It is very good and makes quite a bit. It almost filled up a 32 oz. cup! And the nutrition facts are for the whole smoothie, not just like an 8 oz. serving or anything.
What’s funny is that the cup I’m using is from Fuzzy’s Tacos, and the straw I’m using is a Taco Casa one I found. Haha, ironic. See? I am making healthier choices!
So all in all I did well today. From myfitnesspal, I did good except I went over my protein by 7, which I know came from this drink. Normally I’ll drink this after a work out, but I really just wanted to test it out and taste it and everything today, so I’m going to drink it with dinner.
