High Protein Berry Smoothie ~ Fat Flush Plan

I was looking through my Fat Flush Plan Cookbook and came across a recipe for a high protein smoothie that incorporates the diet's cranberry/flax seed daily 'cocktail', along with fresh cranberries, to make a great tasting breakfast smoothie.  I happened to have some frozen cranberries in the freezer, as well as a few blueberries and strawberries ~ so, this is my adapted version.  I'm really digging adding 'fresh' cranberries to smoothies, they add a great 'punch' and they aren't too tart for me ~ Enjoy!

  • 1 oz. unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen strawberries

  • 1 Tbsp ground flax seed

Throw all ingredients into the blender and whirl away until it's smooth and frosty!
