Coconut Blueberry Smoothie
Smoothies have to be one of my favorite breakfast ideas. I have two little ones so sitting down to breakfast doesn’t always happen for me. I’m usually in a hurry to get them dressed as they eat or packing up my bag before we head out the door. Since I really want a healthy option for breakfast, the drive through isn’t an option. A smoothie though can be drank while I get ready, and even tag along with me in the car.
While I was out doing some grocery shopping I grabbed some ProYo High Protein Low Fat Ice Creams at my local Kroger Store and thought they would work perfect for a smoothie! That’s right people High Protein Low Fat Ice Cream! If I’m I’m being honest I thought we would have flying cars before healthy ice cream. ProYo is a revolutionary high-protein blend that combines delicious taste, powerful nutrition, clean ingredients, and a touch of delight. There is actually 10g of protein per serving / 35g of protein per container. Which means no guilt here when eating ice cream for breakfast! I picked up two flavors Dutch Chocolate and Coconut, and couldn’t wait to try them! Not only is this ice cream guilt free, but it taste great. Not only will I be eating it for breakfast, but also for dessert or even an after workout snack. ProYo High Protein Low Fat Ice Creams are available nationwide at Kroger and other banner stores, you can use this store locator to find one near you!
This smoothie was simple to make and the ProYo High Protein Low Fat Ice Creams made the smoothie smooth and creamy! I added some fresh greens to my smoothie to add even more vitamins and nutrients to the smoothie! The best part about using blueberries and greens is that the blueberry color comes through and so no one (not even my kids) know that I’m serving them something healthy.
