I will make this delicious smoothie as a post work out meal or if I am in a rush I want something filling and nutritious!
½ cup 2% lactose free milk
½ cup water
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
¼ cup quaker quick oats
1 cup ice
½ cup spinach
Protein 31g, Carbohydrate 25g Fat 3 g Total Calories 258 (without spinach), 265 calories (with spinach).
Note: the above macros will vary based on what protein powder you use.
I use lactose free milk because being asthmatic I try to limit dairy where I can. However you can use almond milk ( I am allergic to almonds) or regular 2% milk.
You can omit the spinach if you like. I promise you do not taste it but you do get all the added nutrients from it. I love spinach and eat it every day. Spinach contains protein, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, vitamin, A, fiber, folate, phosphorus and thiamine.
The final product: smoothie with (right) and without (left) spinach.
