Jay Robb Brown Rice Protein Smoothie

I've been feeling weird and totally not in the mood to eat the way I usually do. My schedule is also way nutty due to the end of the semester so I haven't been cooking nearly as much as I would like.

One easy thing though? Protein smoothies. I love them! I always make sure my fridge, pantry and freezer is packed with all my smoothie essentials.

001

Unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze. Almond milk is my favorite "alternative" milk. It's low in calories and sugar too!

002

Jay Robb Brown Rice Protein- Vanilla Flavor. I prefer Vanilla to Chocolate flavored protein powders as a base in my smoothies. I like chocolate it's too desserty for me to have in a smoothie most of the time. I find the brown rice protein to be a little chalkier than the whey protein. To combat this, I just blend the almond milk and protein powder together before adding anything else. Blending well is key!

003

1 cup of Trader Joe's Plain Greek yogurt has 22 grams of protein which is the highest I have seen. I like to throw in 1/4 cup to my smoothies to make them extra creamy. I don't always add it in but I love when I do!

004

I don't know if you can tell but this is an industrial-sized bottle of Pom Wonderful. We bought it at Costco for 8 bucks. I add it 1/4 cup to sweeten my smoothies with the natural sugars.

005

Then I add in ground flax seed, 1/2 cup mango, 1 frozen banana, 1/2 raspberries and sometimes 1/4 cup dry oats. You can't taste the oats...they just add some staying power. I love drinking these smoothies immediately after a workout and before I go to school. YUM!

What's your favorite smoothie? Or favorite protein powder? I'm always looking for new favorites.

I've never had rice protein drinks before. Sounds fantastic!

Holy crap- I didn't even think to look for POM at Costco- That seems like a great deal!

My all-time favorite smoothie at the moment is still the Green Monster. As for protein powders, I'm still trying to find one that both pleases my taste buds and isn't *too* expensive... I'm using up the last of my Biggest Loser protein and making the switch to the regular Designer Whey variety. I'm getting my shipment tomorrow, so I'm excited to try it!

I love protein smoothies!! I love jay robb vanilla egg white protein powder, but I tried the brown rice over the weekend and HATED it. Maybe it had gone bad or something, but it was so terrible. Almond milk is a must! ;)

I have to be the last food blogger not to try a green monster or any kind of smoothie. I have no idea why, but I have no interest!

Yours looks pretty though!

I like mango or strawberry smoothies. I just so happens that I worked on the show Hawthorne today and during lunch one of the catering people employees served up fresh made fruit smoothies. That's a first I've had that on a set!!

I like adding frozen banana chunks and frozen cherries. The combo is amazing with vanilla protein powders and Almond Breeze. YUM!

I also LOVE frozen bananas and pineapples with the vanilla. So so good!

Lately I've been making smoothies with frozen blueberries, greek yoghurt, low fat milk and sometimes an egg - yum!
