12 Yummy Protein Smoothies!

Someone on our Facebook page talked about how they really liked the City Blends Elvis Smoothie that we sell (peanut butter, chocolate & banana) and wanted to make it at home. Now making a smoothie is super easy just throw a bunch of things in a blender and you’re done! I found a bunch of smoothie recipes online and decided to post them for you! So let me know how some of them are if you make them for yourselves!

If you’re lactose intolerant, omit dairy products. Get creative and don’t let boredom take you shopping down the baked goods aisle when hunger calls!
