*Note: We prefer vanilla flavored whey protein powder. We do not suggest chocolate or berry flavored, as it competes with the natural fruit flavors of other ingredients.
1/2 to 1 cup of fruit juice of choice
1 cup frozen berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)
1 unpeeled banana
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 scoop (2 tablespoons) whey protein, or other powdered protein of choice *
Pour 1/2 cup fruit juice in a blender (reserving remaining juice.) Add berries, banana yogurt and whey protein.
Pulse blender motor to mix. Stir frozen fruit from bottom to allow blades to reach all ingredients. Pulse again. If smoothie is too stiff, add more juice, 2 tablespoons at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Pour into glasses and serve.

Our Cookbooks rock!
What you're saying..
You two are my life-savers! One day, in a coffee-house bookstore, I discovered a strange and mesmerizing cookbook ... and I had to tell you how much I've used and appreciated your approach to cooking. Your cookbook literally changed our lives. You have probably brought more families to the dinner table at home than you can know. And for that, I and my loved ones are grateful.
