Strawberry Lemon Cream Smoothie

When my protein intake is too low, or when I work out very intensely, I have protein powder to give me more nutrients. Protein powder is great, because in one small drink I can add 20 or more grams of protein and with very few calories. The drawback though, is that as many powders as I’ve tried– the ones with the lowest sugar, do not taste very good. I’m always looking for healthy ways to mask the flavor. Before this, I never added lemon juice to a smoothie. The lemon was perfect! The flavor of this drink is a cross between strawberry lemonade and cheesecake. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  • 1/3 cup light coconut milk
  • 1 serving of protein powder
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of crushed ice
  • 1/2 cup of strawberry halves
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp honey or alternative sweetener
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

 If you do not have crushed ice, simply add ice cubes to the blender first to crush. Next combine all ingredients and blend on high for 30 to 60 seconds, depending on the blender.
