protein punch banana strawberry smoothie!

As my pregnancy progresses, by belly gets bigger, but my appetite has been getting smaller! Being someone who loves to eat, I HATE IT!! I guess it’s a good thing, though, because I’ve already gained a whole bunch of weight and maybe now it’ll just even out. Rather than make my usual egg, bagel, sausage and fruit breakfast I looked to the lighter side of things while perusing my kitchen yesterday morning and saw that I still had frozen strawberries in my freezer and I decided to make smoothies!! With added almond butter and greek yogurt, this smoothie packs a real punch of protein, and is also incredibly smooth. It honesty had the best texture! Nice and thick and super creamy! This recipe will make you one smoothie. If you don’t have frozen fruit, use fresh and add ice, if you do have frozen fruit, don’t add ice – simple as that!
