healthy orange julius protein smoothie

If you like protein smoothies but also enjoy adding variety to your smoothies, then you’ll love my healthy orange julius protein smoothie recipe.

Fueling our body with the right nutrients first thing in the morning is crucial.  One of those nutrients is protein.  Kicking off your day with the right amount of protein will help set your metabolism on fat burning mode.  So ditch the carb laden bagels and start your day with some protein.  My healthy orange julius protein smoothie recipe has just the right mix of it all without the Dairy Queen Orange Julius guilt!

On to the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • fresh juice of 3 oranges
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 1/2 cup of full fat or fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I used this one)

Directions:

  • Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth
  • Makes 2 servings
  • Enjoy immediately

 

Let me know what you think if you try it.  I’ve never really been able to drink protein shakes with just water, bleh!  So, I’m always trying to come up with creative ways to turn it into a healthy drink/ meal replacement.  I also had a rice cake with some avocado along with my smoothie.  Bomb!
