Janelle's Awake Shake!

Longing for something more than egg whites and veggies in the am with my oatmeal, I thought about creating something that had a combination of protein, veggie and fruit to have on my way out the door to train clients.

Below is what I came up with and despite the green color and thought of having veggies in your protein smoothie I think you will find it extremely DELISH! Try it out and let me know what you think. You could even call it the "GREEN MONSTER" to get the kids to try...after all it is Halloween month :)

4 ice cubes
1.5 scoops banana whey protein (if you only have vanilla or strawberry that will work too)
1/2 apple
1/2 pear
1 handful of spinach
1 small cucumber, peeled
1/2 cup water, apple juice or skim milk (use only water if trying to cut cals & fruit sugars)
1/2 lime squeezed

Blend all in blender until smooth. ENJOY!


  1. You should submit that recipe! Looks great!

  2. OMG love it! I def. will post but need to take a pic first :) thanks EM!

  3. wait a second... am I missing something? where are the veggies?? lol this does sound delicious! I think I might have it for breakfast tomorrow!!!
