My basic protein smoothie whey protein handful of kale handful of spinach 1/2 banana 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk handful of ice If you need to use a sweetener you can drizzle it with honey prior to blending it up. Get creative add frozen berries, in place of the ice, fresh berries in place of the banana, etc.

Yum I'm so trying this thanks gymmie:D
I am a biggie on whey protein mainly because I don't eat meat. I have to rely on other sources. We all know you need adequate protein to support muscle. Drinking these is the easiest way for me. PLUS, my whey is a greens/whey which is loaded with phytonutrients plus antioxidants which is a double bonus. But you don't have to use a whey protein use whatever protein powder you have or like.

@HippieNerd and anyone that's interested Nutribullet is on sale at HSN for $114.95 and you can make 5 payments, just ordered one.
Thanks sweetie, sorry for the late delay! I've got the buy one and get the other one free, a few months ago. I love my nutribullet, especially when I want to give my juicer a big break.
