Super refreshing breakfast drink that is so quick and satisfying. If you cannot find the pomegranate yogurt, try plain yogurt and add some pomegranate juice to it. Adding just a bit of splenda and honey takes away a little bit of the tart in the juices. Big pick me up.

Serves:

1 or 2 with ice

Prep:

5 Min

Ingredients

3/4 c
pomegranate greek yogurt
1/4 c
plain non fat yogurt
2 slice
canned peaches (reserve juice)
2 Tbsp
peach juice
1/2 c
low fat milk
1 medium
banana broken in chunks (if using frozen cut back on ice)
2 tsp
wheat germ
2 tsp
honey
2 Tbsp
lemon juice
2 Tbsp
oj
2 pkg
splenda
1
scoup of protein powder in chocolate (containing 25g protein)
2 Tbsp
cocoa powder (optional)
13
ice cubes

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place half the ice cubes in blender and pulse to break them up. Add in yogurts, peach slices, juice milk and banana and pulse a few times. Add remaining ice, honey wheat germ, lemon and oj, splenda pack protein powder and pulse 3 or 4 times to break up remaining ice, then blend for 15-30 seconds to desired consistency. This will be on the thicker side, between a smoothie and slushy. There is enough for 2 when adding in all ice, but remember, its ice. If you use a frozen banana, you can cut down on the ice by about half, crush 4 in the blender and serve over 3 to keep cold.

Note:
I love the Chobani Greek Style flavored and plain yogurts. Check for them to go on sale and try them, they are great for smoothies!
For protein powder, I use APC Whey Protein powder in chocolate. This will not have a strong chocolate taste, just more of a hint of chocolate. Add the cocoa powder if you would like a little more chocolate flavor, I omit it in mine. Try this with any kind you have, or if you do not have any and do not wish to put protein powder in the smoothie, try this with Ovaltine or Carnation Instant Breakfast, or omit all together if you like.
