(Re-post) Don’t know if you guys know this, but a few years back I went through with the Lap-Band procedure. On my journey of weight loss and keeping it off, I had to come up with some tolerable smoothie recipes to quench my sweet tooth while keeping my calories and carbs in check. Sometimes I do fall off the boat with some over indulging smoothies, but I just have to keep those times to a minimum right? Either way, this was one of my creations I came up with while at work.
SPB & B Cheesecake Smoothie
½ cup ice
1 cup Vanilla Almond Milk
6 oz. Strawberry Banana yogurt
1 scoop Strawberry Mousse protein powder
1 large banana
1 tbsp. PB2
1 tbsp. instant Cheesecake Jell-O
Vanilla extract to taste
1. Throw it all in a blender and blend it all up!
Note: Watching Carbs?
Use the unsweetened vanilla almond milk, sugar free Cheesecake Jell-O, and remove the banana. I add a dash of banana extract when I want to watch my carbs. (Which really should be all the time.)
Kroger’s CARBmaster Strawberry Banana dairy product can be used in place of the yogurt.
