This smoothie is packed with protein, vitamins and nutrients to help keep you full and give you energy to start your day!
I feel like I could post a new smoothie recipe each week. I am always testing out new ones and I this one is a true favorite. I love adding Stonyfield Greek yogurt to my smoothies because it adds 15 grams of protein (per 5.3 ounce cup) and it’s organic and GMO-FREE too as well. This is my second year being a Stonyfield Blogger Ambassador and I love every minute of it! I did write The Greek Yogurt Cookbook, so that must mean something!
Now let me show my new favorite product! This is a Hamilton Beach Single Serve Blender with Travel Lid. How smart…they made a blender that also can be used as a cup. Pure genius!
I have used this blender several times since I received it and I love it. It’s super easy, you literally place the ingredients in it and press the button. I love easy. And I love this smoothie.
So now check out this delicious, healthy smoothie…
