Start your morning off right with this berry-flavored protein shake. The combination of Greek yogurt and collagen peptides add a protein boost. The fruit adds fiber and complex carbohydrates to keep you energized and the vanilla extract adds a hint of sweetness without added sugar. While this version is fruit based, it would also taste great with the addition of greens such as spinach or kale. This version also adds a small amount of water for easier blending but can be substituted with milk or non-dairy milk if available.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 small banana (1/3 cup)
  • 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 10g Collagen peptides (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 3-4 Tbsp water as needed

Preparation

  1. Put all ingredients in a blender. Add a small handful of ice cubes and blend it together until creamy. Adjust consistency with water.

Variations and Substitutions

  • Make shake vegan by replacing collagen with vegan alternative or plant-based protein powder and replace Greek yogurt with non-dairy yogurt such as coconut or almond milk based.
  • Increase healthy fats by adding chia seeds, hemp seeds, or a scoop of nut butter.
  • Get your greens by adding a handful of spinach or kale. Add more liquid as necessary for easy blending.

Tips

  • Freeze banana in advance and you may not need the ice cubes.
  • Reduce ingredients by half if you want a smaller smoothie closer to 8 oz since leftovers do not keep well.
