High Protein-Fresh Golden Juice Smoothie

I'm enjoying adding some protein powder to my fresh made veggie/fruit juices.  Adding the vanilla protein powder, banana and ice cubes gives the juice combo a whole new creamier, dreamier dimension. This time I skipped most of the greens and went mostly for the gold.  I'm racking it up to all this Olympic gold fever!   heehee  :)

High Protein-Fresh Golden Juice Smoothie
serves 1~2

  • 2 carrots
  • 1 peeled orange, seeds removed
  • 1 apple, seeds removed (maybe even a golden delicious :)
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 slice Meyer lemon, seeds removed
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger slice
  • few sprigs fresh parsley
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 banana
  • 4 ice cubes
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • few drops of liquid stevia or sweetener of choice
  • 1/3 of the remaining leftover pulp ~ (if desired)
  • extra water to thin (optional)
Prep all fruit/veggies. Run the first 7 fruit/veggies through the juicer. (NOT the banana yet...trust me on this one :)  Pour fresh juice into a blender.  Add about 1/3 of the remaining veggie/fruit pulp (to get more of the goodness of the fiber in your drink ~ if desired) and then add the remaining ingredients.  (OK...NOW add the banana)  Blend on high until it becomes smooth & frosty. Add a little water, if needed, to get your juice to the consistency you like.  Enjoy!
