This breakfast smoothie is easy to make, and is my version of the recipe given to me from my naturopath. You can substitute other milks for the soy milk, such as almond or rice milk, as well as other protein powders for the soy powder. The flax meal is optional, but adds omega-3.
- Add frozen berries, soy milk to a blender.
- Peel banana and break up into pieces and add to blender.
- Add soy protein powder and flax meal to blender.
- Blend at high speed until smooth. Pour into glass and enjoy.
I bought soy milk to try but I didn't care for it much so I thought I would use it in a smoothie and I really liked it but couldn't drink it on it's own, I used mixed red berries half a large banana and vanilla protein powder and of course the flax. Mine was very thick I nearly had to use a spoon I think I was a bit heavy on the flax so it would fill me up all morning. thanks for posting. Made for Honor thy Mother the diabetic forum May 2011.
Wonderful - I love that this was a thin, easy-to-drink-quickly consistency. When you're in a hurry, thicker-style icy cold protein shakes can be a big pain! I used almond milk and fresh blueberries, and a scoop of protein powder which may be a little more than two tablespoons. I'm not sure if I've had flax seed meal in a smoothie before but will use it often since it's hardly noticeable. This makes a huge filling drink - it didn't even all fit in my tall glass.
