Delicious Meal Replacement Smoothie

Coach Geoff's Power Smoothie:

Add to blender:

-2.5 cups 8th Continent® brand soy milk
-1 scoop non-GMO organic vanilla soy protein (I use Central Market® Brand)
-2 scoops Jay Robb® brand Chocolate Egg Protein
-1 cup frozen broccoli
-1 cup frozen spinach
-6 oz. Fage® brand 2% Greek yogurt
-3 tablespoons organic peanut butter (I use the Central Market® brand sweetened with honey)
-1 medium banana
-1/4 cup frozen pineapples (no sugar added)
-3/4 cup frozen dark sweet cherries (no sugar added)
-1/2 cup frozen raspberries (no sugar added)
-1/2 cup frozen blueberries (no sugar added)

blend until smooth, scrape sides then blend for a few more seconds.

Makes 7 cups.

Each 16 oz. serving has approximately:
*45 grams of Carbohydrate
*35 grams of Protein
*11 grams of Fat

I like to make 3 smoothies this way at night so I can put two in the fridge for the next day, and have one before I go to bed. Because the mix is a little bit fat deficient, I take my fish oil supplement capsule with my smoothies, and depending on my activity level at the time, maybe a few almonds, too. There should be a little bit left over after making 3 smoothies, so share it with your friends and get them hooked on healthy eating, too!

Get Fit!
