My New Protein Smoothie Recipe

If you want to burn fat, lose weight, build and or maintain muscle, protein smoothies are a must.  They're easy to make, filling and pretty tasty if made properly.  They're also really practical if you're short on time.  I usually have one in the morning before heading out and it only takes me a few minutes.  I can actually make one, drink it, and be done with my morning meal before my coffee is finished brewing.


This week I had some left over ingredients and like I normally do with left overs, I decided to experiment a little.  I first learned how to make protein smoothies about 15 years ago while working at a health food store.  The store had a juice and smoothie bar and I would frequently work that area of the store.  One of the most important things I learned while working there is that  most berries and fruits make a good mix for smoothies as long as you use some kind of vanilla flavoring.  So what I tried this week was some frozen strawberries, pineapple juice, and vanilla protein powder.  


This smoothie was so good that I've been hooked on it for the last week.  One thing that you do have to watch out for, especially if you're trying to burn fat and lose weight is the amount of pineapple juice that you use.  It's a bit high in sugar(carbohydrates) so I would suggest only using 6 -8 ounces.  You can add some water if you want your smoothie to be a thinner.  Anyway, give it a try and let me know what you think.  Also feel free to add to comment with any protein smoothie recipes you might have.
