A Wonderfully Refreshing (and healthy!) Smoothie


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • unfiltered apple juice (enough to cover blades in blender)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • frozen blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, or cherries (or all of them combined!)
  • 2-3 ice cubes
  • Spiru-Tein brand high protein energy powder- vanilla flavored
  • chunky almond butter – roasted and unsalted


If you have a regular blender, put apple juice and banana
in and blend on “grate” until most of banana is smooth.
Then add other fruits and blend again until smooth. Then
throw in ice and blend until smooth. Add 1 scoop of powder
and blend for a second to mix thoroughly. Pour into glass
and add a few spoonfuls of almond butter, and enjoy!

The key to a yummy smoothie is to blend until there are no
chunks, and to make it really cold. The almond butter is a
yummy addition and a good source of calcium and protein and
the good kind of fat (it only has 1 gram of saturated fat
for 2 tablespoons).

I have found these smoothies very filling and a good
breakfast before going on your day. My body thanks me
every time I feed it one of these smoothies, which is once
and sometimes twice a day!

Serves: 1

Preparation time: 10 min (depends on type of blender)
