30 Days of Fat Loss–Day #15: On-the-Go Breakfast Fruit Smoothie

Be Sociable, Share!

It’s Monday, time to start the week off right with a great, quick fat-loss breakfast!  Anyone who knows us, knows that we love yummy, nutritious protein shakes because they are quick and convenient meals that taste great and help quench cravings.  One of the best on-the-go breakfasts is a fruit smoothie.  Here are 2 of our favorite recipes from JillFit:

Shake #1: Very Berry Protein Smoothie

Using a Vitamix, Magic Bullet or standard blender, blend together:
1 cup mixed frozen berries (no sugar added, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries)
8 oz unsweetened almond milk (original or unsweet vanilla)
1 scoop protein powder (preferably vanilla or strawberry flavor, low carb, whey or egg white variety)
Optional: 1-2 tbsp xylitol or erythritol for added sweetness
Optional: 5g L-glutamine powder
Blend until smooth

Shake #2: Tropical Fruit Smoothie (Preferable for post-AM workouts)

Using a Vitamix, Magic Bullet or standard blender, blend together:
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
1/2 medium banana
8 oz unsweetened almond milk (original or unsweet vanilla)
2 scoops protein powder (preferably vanilla flavor, low carb, whey or egg white variety)
0.5-1 cup ice (to desired thickness)
Optional: 5g L-glutamine powder (great post-workout supplement)
Blend until smooth

The tropical shake above is best to have immediately after a hard weight-training workout because the fruits it contains have a higher glycemic index (GI) rating and their sugars will be absorbed faster into the blood stream, which will help the body use the protein to build lean muscle.  The berries contained in the first smoothie are lower GI, so they can be eaten whenever, try to stick to the serving size of 1 cup.  YUMMY! Enjoy! ox Jill
