The quickest way I know to put some pizazz in a protein smoothie is to add homemade jam. No hard and fast rules here. Feel free to experiment by trying different fun combinations.
This morning I added a spoonful of Red Raspberry Jam to my usual blend of ice, nonfat yogurt, fresh bananas, protein powder and water....
...gave it a whirl...
...and 15 seconds later I had a quick breakfast that reminded me of summer sunshine. Fresh raspberry flavors came shining through on an otherwise dreary October morning. So if you have a jar of jam, jelly or preserves in your fridge, don't just spread them on toasted bread. Get creative!
I'll leave you with a few more ideas for smoothie & milkshake add-ins:
Peanut Butter & Grape Jelly
Chocolate Syrup & Cherry Preserves
Apple Butter with a sprinkle of cinnamon
Bananas & Orange Marmalade
Vanilla Syrup & Strawberry Jam
