Strawberry Protein Shake

The flax meal and protein make this a really filling snack.  I actually had one for breakfast today and I feel stuffed right now.  I know eggs and bacon or an omelet would have been better, but just wanted to use up my strawberries before they went bad. Mmmm.  Sure was good!  Gobbled it right up!  Next time I’m going to use 1/2 nectarine or 1/2 peach.  Yeah, I know it’ll add carbs, but I want to have either a peach or nectarine before summer is over.  And of course, you could use blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries for this.  The nutritional info below is for a STRAWBERRY shake.  This recipe is not Induction friendly due to the berries, but once you get to the berry rung of OWL, GO FOR IT!

    Using frozen strawberries and almond milk makes it thick, and even more like a real treat w/o a lot of carbs. I also use coconut/almond/chia blend milk…yum!

    1. That works if you like almond milk. I’ve not made anything with it I liked very much so I finally quit buying it. It was just spoiling in my ridge.
