I knew I wanted to eat healthy but I just didn’t know how to eat healthy. Nutrition homework was involved and after searching non stop, I came up with three blender recipes that have satisfied my sweet tooth as well as provided me with protein for energy. I also wanted to look and feel good and learned that the only way I could do this was by preparing blender recipes that I found could be satisfying and healthy at the same time. With the right amount of protein, I could make a simple shake using my blender and feel energized the entire day. The following recipes are not hard to make and the end result is a tasty meal. 1. “Blue Nana” – To your blender, add blueberries, banana, flaxseed and plain yogurt. Don’t add preservatives or sugar. When I drank this I found I didn’t crave a candy bar or high sugary protein bars. The fruit sugars satisfied my sweet tooth. 2. Sweet Tooth – I do admit my sweet tooth can get in the way of eating healthy. With this drink, I added vanilla extract, peanut butter for protein, flaxseed and fat free yogurt. This healthy blender recipe won’t even recall previous temptations to indulge in a candy bar. You do have to add low fat peanut butter and only a few drops of vanilla extract. What is blended is a sweet blender treat. 3. Healthy Protein Blast – I add strawberries, blueberries, granola, flaxseed, fat free yogurt and whey protein in the blender. Since I do exercise, I have learned that protein is needed for healthy muscles and that extra protein is just what I need. You can use any fruit combination in season which is an added bonus for those on a tight budget. I have been able to use my imagination when it comes to mixing fruits and supplements and have created many blender recipes that I have written to share with my friends.
