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
2 cups plain non-fat or low-fat yogurt
2 cups sliced strawberries
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.
