Silk Fruit&Protein Seasonal Fruit Smoothies – Get Juiced About Protein!

We are always making smoothies in our house and like having them at all different times of the day. Smoothies are great for breakfast, lunch and dessert. I like that they can easily be made with whatever seasonal fruits and ingredients are on hand.

A Smoothie A Day Keeps the Doctor Away!

I try to make sure that our smoothies always contain dairy, fruit, and protein. I’ve been adding protein powder to our smoothies for the longest time, although I have to admit that I don’t much care for the texture and flavor that it adds. I was thrilled to learn about Silk Fruit&Protein as something I could use in our smoothies for protein.

We headed to our local Walmart the other day in search of Silk Fruit&Protein and seasonal fruits for our smoothies. We found Silk Fruit&Protein in the milk section of our Walmart, right between the milk and coffee creamer. Our store carried Silk Fruit&Protein in three different flavors: Mixed Berry, Strawberry Banana and Mango Peach. It was a tough decision to make, but we went with the Strawberry Banana.

You never really know what fruits are going to be in the store, so I didn’t have a plan. There were some beautiful strawberries and bananas available. I had hoped to find peaches, but instead found plums and nectarines. The nectarines were beautiful, so I grabbed a few of them also. We easily found everything we needed to make some seasonal fruit smoothies for breakfast in the morning.

Without further ado…Silk Fruit&Protein Seasonal Fruit Smoothies Recipe

Ingredients:
2 cups plain non-fat or low-fat yogurt
2 cups sliced strawberries
2 bananas
1 nectarine
1 cup frozen fruit (I used mixed berries.)
1 – 1 1/2 cups Silk Fruit&Protein (I used Strawberry Banana.)

First wash and cut up your fruit. Add first five ingredients to blender and pulse until almost smooth. Add 1 to 1 1/2 cups Silk Fruit&Protein and pulse until smooth. Enjoy!

This recipe will yield 2 – 4 servings, depending on what size glasses you use. The beauty of this recipe is that you can interchange your ingredients, depending on what fruits are seasonally available.

I like to use frozen fruit instead of ice cubes. But if you don’t have frozen fruit available, ice cubes will work just fine.

Silk Fruit&Protein is a natural soy based product.You’ll be pleased to know that a one cup serving of Silk Fruit&Protein contains 5 grams of Protein and 20% juice. It’s free of lactose, dairy, cholesterol, eggs, casein, and MSG!

The Strawberry Banana blend that we purchased is delicious! It’s not just for smoothies and it didn’t last long in our house. I am eager to pick up the other varieties when we go back to the store tomorrow.

    The fruit silk by itself is really gross. Maybe this would make it taste yummy. I am definitely trying!

  3. I haven’t tried the Silk Fruit & Protein yet, but after reading this recipe I will! I love the regular Silk and use it in the place of milk most of the time, I can’t tell much of a difference in taste between the two of them! Thanks!

    • I have been drinking silk protein and fruit for three months and they are just awesome – flavorable i feel like i am cheating
      so whoever says otherwise – u need to check ur tastebuds

  4. Thats a great idea, it didn’t look appealing in the store, but maybe blended in a smoothie would be better, thanks!

  5. This looks awesome! We’re vegetarians and always looking for new ways to add more protein to our diet. I’m going to look to see if it’s in our stores yet.

  6. sounds delicious! I have been wanting to try this product in our smoothies!
