Mornings are easier with this Smoothie Booster recipe! Get protein powder, chia seeds, and ground flaxseed in just one scoop!
Ahhh…January! The time of the year when we all try to be nice to our bodies by making up for all the damage we did over the holiday season. It’s actually something we should try to do all year long and one of the easiest ways to put the good stuff in, is to make smoothies.
My family isn’t the best at eating their fruits and vegetables, especially the guys in the family. So, at the start of the school year, I bought a BlendTec blender and started making smoothies in the morning.
Our typical smoothie has water, yogurt, fresh spinach, frozen fruit, protein powder, chia seeds and ground flaxseeds. I finally decided to make things a little easier by premixing those last three ingredients to make a Smoothie Booster that is ready to go in just one scoop!
Whisk it all together until the seeds are evenly distributed.
Put it all into a large jar, add a label and stick a scoop into the jar for easy use.
The size of the scoop you put into YOUR jar will depend on the size of the scoop in your protein powder. My cake batter protein powder scoop is about 1/3 cup.
Now, when I am ready to make a smoothie in the morning, I put the water, yogurt, spinach and fruit into the Blendtec and top it off with a scoop of this Smoothie Booster.
