Apricot Peach Smoothie Recipe
I give the ingredient values in grams so that you can follow along in the excel spreadsheet. You of course don't have to use the exact weight that I do! You can plug in your own weights to come up with the exact nutrition for the quantity you choose to use.
9.6g baby spinach
1 scoop vanilla whey protein isolate
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk, reduced sugar
1 Tbsp agave
We have a Blendtec blender - it's good if your blender can handle ice to give it that gentle smoothness that smoothies are all about.
Put all ingredients into the blender with a handful of ice. Start slowly and work your way up to a faster blend. Add in more ice until it reaches the thickness that you wish.
Makes two servings.
I have a spreadsheet I use to calculate these out - feel free to contact me for a copy so you can plug in your own values.
Total calories - 86.1
Total carbs: 6.2g
Net carbs: 5.0g
Vitamin C: 6.2%
Most of the calories and protein come from the protein powder, as you might imagine. So they are good calories and protein. The peach is providing most of the Vitamin C for you.
I wouldn't necessarily eat fruit smoothies every day - they are mostly a sweet treat without a lot of nutrition in them. Still, if you're craving something sweet, this is a good thing to turn to. It has good protein, some nutrition, and will fill you up. It'll keep you from delving into something far worse.
