Tropical Vitamin C Whey Protein Smoothie Recipe

January 26, 2011 by Matt

I tend to believe that a lot of times we just overlook simple vitamins and minerals that we need to give our body and the cornerstone being Vitamin C. It probably is the easiest to get because it’s in almost every fruit known to man but you really do need to make sure you’re getting enough of it.

Why is Vitamin C so important?

The Anfas Organization says, “Vitamin C is responsible for helping the body absorb iron, and it has also been linked with the prevention of disease and the delaying of aging because Vitamin C destroys free radicals, which are the molecules that are most commonly associated with cell damage and signs of aging. Vitamin C provides numerous health benefits, and promotes overall excellent health for the entire body.”

So you see it really is something you need to have more often than not and to be quite honest fruits containing vitamin C are often the most delicious which is why I have this…

Tropical Vitamin C Smoothie Recipe (makes 16 ounces)

1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup frozen mango
1/2 cubed papaya
1/2 oranges or preferably orange juice

It’s as simple as putting these in there the blender and letting it rip. But to kick up the health even more I add a scoop of my favorite and number one rated undenatured whey protein powder in there.

1 scoop of undenatured whey protein powder

I personally love tropical fruits more than any other kind so feel free to mix and match because all of these tropical fruits are absolutely loaded with vitamins and minerals and adding the whey protein powder means you’ve just amped it up a notch. Whey protein contains it’s on set of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and Glutathione – the number one antioxidant on the planet that our bodies are actually deficient of.

So make sure you go out and try some soon.
