As a busy working mom it’s hard for Laura Caruso to prepare a healthy lunch to bring to work every day. So instead she keeps frozen bananas and strawberries in the break room freezer and whips up what tastes more like a delicious and refreshing summer treat than a lunch!
Laura is a mammography coordinator at Botsford Breast Center and she recently organized a “Smallest Loser” weight loss challenge with her radiology co-workers. She shared her protein shakes with her fellow contestants and they loved them! The shakes may have even played a role in the success of the contest. In all, the 10 team members lost more than 66 pounds over 10 weeks.
Laura’s recipe is below. Give it a try and let us know how you like it in the comments below. Can you think of any delicious variations? Laura’s “Smallest Loser” team would love to know!
- 1 cup of ice
- 1 ½ cup water
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 large banana
- 1 scoop of protein power. Laura recommends “Pure Protein Vanilla Cream Whey Powder” which includes only 2g of sugar.
Put all ingredients into blender, blend until smooth and enjoy!
