Recipe for a Great Protein Smoothie

A friend from Washington State that moved to L.A. a few years ago was telling me how his friends tease him:

“Well, have you started doing yoga? Are you drinking protein shakes for breakfast?”

I was disconcerted, because I realized how stereotypically and completely L.A. I’ve become. Yoga, well, I always saw that as a sophisticated manifestation of my L.A.ness. But protein shakes for breakfast. Who would’ve thunk that I’d stoop so low, I who love my toast with good Swiss cheese in the morning.

But it has happened. A couple of months ago I started drinking protein smoothies in the morning in lieu of toast, and to my utter amazement, I haven’t looked back. I’ve become a complete addict to these good-for-you astronaut-food concoctions. In fact, I have them for both breakfast and lunch. And unlike my compatriots, that try to vary the flavor to keep their palate interested, I stick to one, and only one type. I’ve refined the recipe, and offer it here to you for your breakfast and lunch pleasure.

Mango, Banana, Blueberry Smoothie – da best!

In a blender put:

½ cup Naked Juice mango antioxidant juice
½ cup Trader Joe’s plain lowfat organic yogurt
1 cup Trader Joe’s frozen mango, defrosted in the Microwave
½ a banana
½ a cup of frozen organic blueberries
1 scoop Trader Joe’s Soy Protein powder
1 scoop Trader Joe’s Egg and Milk protein powder
½ cup ice cubes

Blend until smooth. You may need to use a spoon to help mix in the renegade protein powder. Of course substitute ingredients as desired. Strawberries, fresh mangoes, etc...

Very yummy, and extremely satisfying, especially with a good cup of coffee.

BTW, about 400 calories, of which about 150 are protein (about 30 grams of protein), and the rest are primarily carbohydrates.

and have you figured out what the price per serving is on your smoothie? seems like a rather expensive blend of already pre-prepared powdered mixes and juices..

Yes. About $3.50. The only pre-prepared part is the mango juice. The protein powder is in a sense pre-prepared, but it's basic protein powder, not a mix.
