Just like my beloved Ravens I too have been sidelined all week. I have whatever the current nasty-cold-knock-you-upside-the-head-virus that is going around. This swimmer hasn't been able to swim or anything! In honor of the end of the Ravens season I present to you a Ravens-berry Smoothie! This is loaded with antioxidants from the berries, potassium from the banana, protein from milk and whey powder. It has a great berry flavor with a hint of chocolate in the background. You don't actually taste the banana for you non-banana folks. No need for filler ice cubes here, frozen berries will keep this nice and frosty. In the summer this is a nice cook drink. All year round it works as a fabulous recovery meal. Yes this is definitely a meal! I usually eat my smoothie with a spoon. Let me know how you like it!
(As you can tell it is the off season and I don't have many events to talk about so instead I present food.)
You will need:
- A blender
- 1 ripe banana per person
- 2 scoops of chocolate whey protein powder per person
- about 1/4 cup each of frozen raspberries, blackberries, blueberries
- Vanilla soy milk
|Ingredients! You don't have to buy the berries separately. |
A pre-mixed berry medley bag will do as well.
|1 banana per person and 2 scoops of protein powder per person|
|Add no more than 1/4 cup of vanilla soy milk so that everything blends nicely|
|Banana, vanilla soy milk, chocolate protein powder blended|
|Add your berries! About 1/4 cup per berries or 3/4 to a cup of a berry medley. |
Add another 1/4 cup or so of milk so your blender doesn't get stuck!
|All done! I like my smoothie thick but if you like yours thinner than add more milk|
|Pour into a cold glass and Enjoy!!|
Not a berry smoothie fan? No problem the No Meat Athlete
has a great read on creating your own smoothie.
