1 c. Unsweetened Almond Milk

1/2 frozen banana

1 scoop of your favorite vanilla or chocolate protein powder (I used Nutrology Grass Fed Whey)

1 Tbsp organic creamy peanut butter

4 large frozen strawberries

Directions: Toss everything into your handy dandy blender. Enjoy!

Basic Nutrition Facts: 298 cal, 20g carb, 12g fat, 30g protein, 267 sodium, 9g sugars

The majority of the sugar is from the fruit. Be careful with your protein powder! It may be loaded with sugar. Mine wasn’t because I used Nutrology Grass Fed Whey.

TIP: For all of the folks out there looking to lose weight, I recommend getting most of your natural added sugars in your diet earlier on in the day. It gives you more time to burn those calories off throughout the course of your day.
