This smoothie has 51 grams of protein. It is so tasty. AND it is easy to make. It’s also low calorie, low carb, and low sugar. Most of the components you need to have a healthy smoothie that tastes great. Now. I gotta warn you, I am not the recipe sharer between the 3 blogs. I leave that awesome-ness to Tina over at The Gluten-Free Foodsmith, most of the time. But I whipped this yummy smoothie up the other day and just knew I had to share with you. I was trying for a healthy drink that is loaded with protein – just about all you need – for those of us after WLS, who need to be sure we are getting our protein in! But anyone who is trying to be healthy may choose this easy-to-make protein smoothie to enjoy, as well.
