High Protein Smoothie

High protein. It's so cliche, but catchy. I'm not sure where the idea that a high protein diet is necessary, or healthy. It seems that people are so confused on how much protein they need on a daily basis, and are just reaching for anything that says HIGH PROTEIN. High protein does not equal healthy. Luckily this recipe, does.

The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA), which is the minimum amount you need to be healthy, is 0.8 grams per kilogram (0.36 grams per pound) of body weight per day—46 grams for an average woman. So for a person weighing 150 pounds, they would need about 54 grams per day.

Recipe:

2 frozen bananas

10 frozen strawberries

2 Tablespoons ground flaxseed

2 cups soy milk

5 oz. Soy or Almond yogurt, vanilla or strawberry flavor

Instructions:

Place all ingredients into the blender, and blend until smooth. That's it. You're welcome.

This recipe has 27 grams of protein. Usually I'll drink this throughout the day with my, almost 2 year old, son. It's a great way to get good plant-based protein, and extra fruits for the day.
