This is one of my favorite smoothie recipes because it keeps me full. A huge bonus is that my son loves it too! As many mom’s know sometimes feeding ourselves starts to fall down the importance scale. This recipe is packed with greens, protein and fiber. Great for energy!

And since I am in training for my third IronMan, fast, nutrient packed snacks are necessary. This smoothie checks my mom and athletes boxes!

Kid friendly green smoothie

EASY GREEN SMOOTHIE INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Scoop Pure Choice Whey Protein Powder – Vanilla or Unflavored
  • Large Handful Spinach
  • 1/2 Cup Oat Milk (add 1/2 cup water if you like a thin smoothie)
  • 1 TBSP Chia Seeds
  • 1 TBSP Hemp Seeds
  • 1 TBSP Ground Flax Seed
  • 1 Cup Frozen Mango (or use ice for less sugar)

I am a huge fan of Pure Choice Farms whey protein. The quality of the product and the brand are second to none. My favorite thing about this protein, besides it being a small business, is that it is a food grade protein, not a supplement.

So what is the difference?

Well food grade means there there is nothing added to the whey. Commonly when you buy protein it has ingredients like amino acids added, making it a supplement. Not Pure Choice Farms whey protein.

It is also a cold filtered whey protein isolate making it of the absolute best quality. Minimal ingredients, high quality manufacturing process, small business … check, check, check. Head over to their website and check them out. Use code purefitness for free shipping!

DIRECTIONS FOR AN EASY GREEN SMOOTHIE WITH PROTEIN THAT KEEPS YOU FULL

I use a single serve smoothie attachment for my Ninja. When you use this type of a blender I think the order you fill your cup matters. Here is what I did.

Frozen mango, all seeds, protein powder, oat milk and then greens. Put the top on, flip and blend!

Other than that there is nothing to it! The recipe doubles well and kid approved. Mix your kid’s favorite fruit and you’ll have a crowd pleaser.

Green Smoothie Keeps You Full

SUBSTITUTIONS FOR AN EASY GREEN SMOOTHIE WITH PROTEIN THAT KEEPS YOU FULL

The combination of oat milk and the seeds makes for a delicious creamy texture. But I love a THICK smoothie. Some people might prefer this recipe as a smoothie bowl. If you want to thin it out I would add 1/2 c of water.

You can also swap the frozen fruit for ice. This could be a way to reduce sugar, but it will change the taste profile. Mango definitely gives this smoothie some sweetness. You can add stevia as a sweetener if you are looking for something simple.

And, of course, you can do any fruit that you prefer. I just happen to love mango.

Warm Orzo Salad with Roasted Vegetables and Feta

I am quite honestly obsessed with this salad. Bold flavor and an ideal ratio of grain to roasted vegetables is what this orzo salad is built on. I stress to you, do not skimp on the vegetable portions even if you think it seems like a lot. I'd say the serving size is...
