pinch tips: How to Chill a Drink in 2 Minutes





5 Min


1 medium
fresh banana broken into chunks
1/2 c
fresh raspberries
1/4 c
frozen blueberries
2 Tbsp
plain low fat yogurt
1/4 c
low fat milk
1/4 c
peach juice/lite syrup from canned peaches or mango juice
1/4 c
pomegranate juice
2 Tbsp
cooked quick oatmeal (optional)
1 1/2 Tbsp
scoup protein powder (25g protein)
1/8 tsp
or dash of cinnamon
2 Tbsp
wheat germ
1 Tbsp
flax seeds

Directions Step-By-Step

Add fruit and yogurt to blender and pulse a few times. Add milk, juice, oatmeal(optional), honey, protein powder, cinnamon, wheat germ and flax. Blend about 15-25 seconds. I like to serve over a few ice cubes so it is super cold.
I use APC Whey Protein Powder in chocolate, but use any kind you like. The night before, I prepare the quick oats in the microwave so I have this reserved for the week. Also, I tend to try to use everything possible and not waste it. The peach juice is from a smoothie a day or two ago that called for canned peaches in juice. I reserve the juice and use it in other smoothies for flavor. Another tip for use is to put juice in ice cube trays and freeze it. That way you get the coldness, consistency and flavor from these cubes.
