Protein Fruit Smoothie

We have always loved fruit smoothies. I had a really crummy blender, so we haven't had any in a while. I recently got a Ninja blender and decided to give it another try. After a few months, I think I have come up with the perfect recipe.

I highly recommend the Ninja.  It is super powerful!

Jennifer has been making protein shakes, so I decided I would try some of her protein powder. It make the perfect shake! Tastes better than Smoothie King. It also happens to be very healthy and low in calories if that is what you are looking for.

Here is a picture of the CytoSport 100% Whey Protein Powder.  I buy the big bag at Costco.  I have not found it anywhere else.  It costs about $48, but it make 75 smoothies.

I do smoothies almost every day. I use Tera Vanilla Whey, a banana, a little juice and some kind of frozen fruit. Today is strawberries. Really yummy and healthy.
