Recipes for my favorite smoothies including Cherry Vanilla Almond and Chocolate Peanut Butter!

I’ve made a few changes in my life lately to help me get through everyday situations that seem to flummox me. You know what I despise? Lunch. Or rather I despise the idea of deciding on lunch every damned day. Lunch would be so much easier if it were more like breakfast. Breakfast around here is toast with peanut butter and a veggie sausage, pretty much every day unless it’s the weekend.

I decided that:

1) I needed to cut back on the amount of calories I’m consuming each day which includes getting lunch under control (see also: sedentary writer)

2) I needed to make lunch painless.

Enter protein smoothies! I’m going to share a bunch of my recipes with you today. They all start with a base of ice, So Delicious Almond Plus (Original or Vanilla), and Jay Robb Protein Powder (Vanilla, Strawberry, or Chocolate, I have them all. Yes, they are really good. Yes, they are expensive. Yes, they are worth it.)

Here are all of my favorite recipes so far! These have all been tested by me and I love them. I have attempted to take photos of them, but damn, smoothies are not very photogenic. I apologize.

Disclaimer: Please use ingredients that you are comfortable with. Substitute as you like, but results not guaranteed with different ingredients.

These all come in around 215-260 calories according to My Fitness Pal’s calculator.
