Blueberry Orange Breakfast Protein Smoothie

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.

How to Make Blueberry Orange Breakfast Protein Smoothie

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
