As many of you know I have always been a fan of Dr. John Berardi and his Precision Nutrition system. His work and website are what got me into this industry in the first place!
Many of the smoothie recipes that I have come up with have utilized the recipes from Precision Nutrition, just modified BSP style.
One of my favorite Precision Nutrition smoothies is the Nuts & Flax shake. It is absolutely delicious. The problem is that it utilizes cottage cheese, which is a food I have limited and no longer encourage. I have modified this smoothie to meet my specifications, ie – be awesome.
BSP Vanilla, Nuts & Flax Smoothie
6-8oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk
6oz vanilla Greek yogurt
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
2 tbsp milled flax seed
2 tbsp almonds and pecans
cinnamon to taste
ice cubes if desired
Give it a shot and let me know what you think. I will note that this smoothie is the rare exception that does not contain any fruits or vegetables, so I recommend having a serving of choice with it.
PS – I am currently adding many blogs to my Recipes category, as well as updating my Resources page, so keep an eye out!
