Blueberry Orange Breakfast Protein Smoothie

Barbara Oseland


This smoothie is so wonderful and filling. Normally I would add oatmeal to this to thicken it up, which you can, but it really is not needed in this drink. I did use fresh blueberries and a small orange (size of a tangerine) in this. For the size that I made, this could be enjoyed by one or two and by adding flax, wheat germ and protein powder it makes for a great morning breakfast.

10 Min


fresh banana, broken into chunks (can use frozen)
3/4 c
fresh or frozen blueberries
1 small
orange (tangerine/mandarin size) peeled and seeded
1/3 c
vanilla fat free yogurt
1/4 c
low fat milk
1/4 tsp
vanilla extract
2 Tbsp
vanilla protein powder (i used whey protein)
1 Tbsp
1 Tbsp
wheat germ
1-2 c
ice (optional)
2 pkg
splenda or other sweetner of your choice

Directions Step-By-Step

Drop chunks of banana, blueberries, orange and yogurt into the blender and pulse a few times to break up. Add protein powder, milk, flax, wheat germ, vanilla extract and splenda and pulse again. If you choose, you can add ice a little at a time.
Note: Using frozen fruit will thicken the smoothie up. If you throw it into the freezer for half an hour prior to use, you can achieve the same consistency if you do not have frozen.
