Smooth Sustenance

I admit to eating a lot of liquid breakfasts. After a nice long run in the morning there's nothing better than a big fruit and protein smoothie to rejuvenate those sore muscles. I usually use frozen fruits because they taste good all year long. My basic formula is to use milk, fruit, protein, and sometimes other flavors. Yesterday I had a nice long 15 mile run so I loaded it up with chocolate and peanut butter too. Here's the recipe I used.

Strawberry Protein Smoothie

1 cup skim milk
1 cup frozen strawberries, slightly thawed
1.5 scoops vanilla flavored whey protein
1 tbsp Ovaltine chocolate powder
1 tbsp creamy peanut butter

Blend until smoooooooooth and enjoy.
