Protein Shake for Breakfast

Good morning!  Just dropping by to share what I had for breakfast.  You might cringe at the thought of adding lettuce or spinach to your shake.  Don't.  Because I used an entire banana and blueberries, I don't even taste the lettuce.

Breakfast Protein Shake

Ingredients
1 banana
1/2 cup blueberries
1 cup fat-free, organic vanilla yogurt
1 1/2 cup lettuce (or 1 cup spinach)
*Use a dark lettuce, not iceburg*
1 cup water
1 tablespoon flax seed, optional
1 scoop protein powder, optional
Ice

Directions:
Add all of the ingredients except for the ice in the blender.  Blend thoroughly (1-2 mins.)

Add Ice and blend.  Serve immediately!

  1. Looks good, and you are right, you can never taste the greens in a smoothie. I am your newest GFC follower, and found you via 'Welcome To The Weekend Blog Hop'. Have a wonderful weekend.
