Whey Protein Powder Berry Cherry Smoothie

December 29, 2010 by Matt

Here’s a recipe I’ve used quite often that I find extremely delicious and packed with nutritional benefits. It’s partially because it’s some of my favorite fruits and not only that but it’s a kid -friendly smoothie.

A lot of times we think tend to think that whey protein or supplements are just for adults but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact the great thing is that you’re feeding your kids something that tastes like a 7-11 slurpee.

So next time you go to your grocery store and you want to put your whey protein to some great use and really get some incredible health benefits I suggest you pick up ingredients for this amazing berry cherry smoothie.

1 cup frozen cherries

1 banana

1/2 cup fresh strawberries

1/4 orange juice

1/4 plain greek yogurt

1 tablespoon of honey (optional)

The great thing I like about the honey though is it thickens the smoothie up, really brings all of the ingredients together, and also its sweetens up the smoothie and unlike artificial sweeteners is extremely healthy for you. It also gives you a great energy boost.

Without the whey protein here some of the nutritional information per serving in this smoothie which is 14 ounces:

Calories 274
Carbs 62g
Protein 6g
Fat 3g
Sat Fat 1g
Cholesterol 8mg
Sodium 39mg
Calcium 141mg
Fiber 6g

So as you can see it’s extremely healthy but there is another way to make sure you are getting even more health in every shake.

If you want to take the smoothie to the next level I suggest you add whey protein powder to it as well.

1 scoop of undenatured whey protein powder should do the trick too.

With all the fruit in this smoothie ¬†too you are going to get lots of vitamins and minerals. Adding the whey protein is a huge benefit too because it’s the highest form of protein that you can buy out on the market. So forget about egg protein, soy protein, or really any other protein for that matter because this is the best.

Here’s our pick for the number one review on undenatured whey protein powder that you can find out there on the market.

Trust me. After all the exhaustive research and lots of testing we finally figured out that this is the best protein for you. So jet on over there and check it out, put it in your next berry cherry smoothie and enjoy the tastiness!

Hope you enjoy and cheers!
