Tangerine Strawberry Creamsicle Smoothie

I’m very much obsessed with tangerines at the moment. I was trying to think of  ways to incorporate them into a recipe when a post-workout protein packed smoothie came to mind! For those of you who know me, you know I don’t do or encourage protein powders or supplements. Protein should come from food, and Greek yogurt is one of the best sources of vegetarian protein. The addition of vanilla Greek yogurt into this smoothie gives a delicious Creamsicle taste.

Although flavored yogurts are a bit high in sugar, this smoothie is the perfect indulgence after a long work-out when the body needs to replenish its stored sugar (called glycogen). The fruit and sugar replace carbohydrates lost during a long endurance work-out. And, an 8-ounce serving of this smoothie contains 7g of protein to aid in muscle repair. Let’s face it, you’re probably going to get more protein by going back for seconds!

And while this recipe is absolutely delicious, you can find out how to make your own smoothie with this simple formula. The best thing about “formulas” is that you can sub in your favorite varieties of fruit, protein, liquid and sweetener. By following this formula, you will make a smoothie that has 300 calories and has 15 grams of protein, aka PERFECT for after an intense workout!
