Banana-Blueberry and Whey Protein Smoothie

Print  Friendly and PDF
Smoothies are easy to make and a great way to get one's daily servings of veggies and fruits. I have added whey protein to fortify my smoothie and keep those hunger cravings at bay for a little longer. I know the color isn't very tempting but the taste is anything but. Just make sure to drink it right away cause the smoothie does turn to an ugly shade of blue afterwards..

Before I go ahead with the recipe, here is a round-up of colored foods(Smoothies and drinks mostly) that I have blogged over the past week:
Ingredients(For 2 Tall or 4 Small Servings):
  • 2 Frozen Small Chiquita Banana
  • 1 Tbsp Freeze-dried Blueberry Powder
  • 1 Scoop(~3 Tbsp) of Vanilla Flavored Whey Protein
  • 2 Cups Skimmed Milk or more/less
  • 1 Cup Ice cubes or more/less
  • Grind the freeze dried blueberries to a fine powder.

  • Mix the milk, whey protein and berry powder in a measuring cup.

  • Chop the bananas and add it to the blender. Pour the milk-berry-protein mixture.  Add the cubes and blend 
  • Serve right away.

  3. Actually I don't mind the color .... It is natural and love the pale lilac color

  4. Stunning smoothie,full of proteins and super catchy.

  5. I've heard of different smoothies that are being combined with blueberries lately. And now after reading your post, how's is differ from natural mixing of blueberries with whey protein than the flavored one.

  6. @Manaka Niita: Flavor-wise the banana is the one that dominates since I didn't add a whole lot of blueberry powder.I used these dried blueberries cause I didn't have fresh ones handy.

    Fresh fruit is always the best in terms of less calories + more health benefits but dried fruits come in a close second.. Read more here:

    Hope this clarifies.
