Delicious Summer Smoothie Recipes

We taste tested some smoothies during our recent HealthCrush Challenge. Each one is packed with protein. Try them out!

Some Recipe Notes – We made ours with light almond milk, but soy, coconut or skim milk will work just as well. Adjust the calories as needed. We also used sugar free/fat free jello, any JELLO pudding powder will work to create a creamier consistency.

In each recipe, add more water (1tbsp) at a time or ice (one cube at a time) to reach desired consistency.
