Recipe Author: Simmie Sinow
1 cup Kefir or 6 ounces of nonfat plain yogurt
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
A little less than 1 Tbsp sugar-free pudding powder, flavor: cheesecake
1 cup baby spinach
Blend the above well; you may have to shake it a bit to get the last of the spinach to circulate down to the blades (depends on the size of your blender; I use one that's for an individual portion).
After everything is blended, throw in a few handfuls of crushed ice and blend again -- this is what makes it thick and creamy. The amount of ice you put in determines how thick your smoothie will be.
- This is a great way to get vegetables in! The spinach absolutely does NOT affect the taste of the smoothie at all -- surprisingly!
- Technically, the pudding powder is “in later cycles” per Dr. Mike, but we believe that to mean a full serving of pudding. 1 Tbsp of the powder is a very small amount and would not be considered one serving.
