Winter Pro-Pro Smoothie Recipe

How do you cure the winter blues, and also keep up with your New Year’s goals to live a healthier lifestyle?  Smoothies are a wonderful source of nutrition, can be a meal replacement, and can even fit in your veggi servings (if you are brave!).

Here is a quick recipe I just made (and drank – hence, no pictures!!), that will give you Pro-biotics, Protein and a Vitamin C punch in one package.  I call it the Pro-Pro Smoothie:

32 ounces of Kefir (Kefir is a yogurty drink that contains pro-biotics.  I actually used the Mango Lassi from Trader Joe’s)

1 Banana

1/2 pint of rinsed Blackberries

3/4 of egg whites (buy it in the carton in your refrigerated section – great source of gluten free, sugar free protein!)

1 packet of EmergenC Acai Berry powder (1000 miligrams of Vitamin C!!)

a handful of ice cubes (optional)

Blend all together in a blender until smooth.  It may have to process for a few rounds to grind down the Blackberry seeds a bit.  Then, pour into glasses and enjoy!  Should yield 3-4 servings.
