Quick Dinner: Protein Fruit Shake

Sometimes I am looking for a really light dinner after having eaten a late lunch. Making a shake is easy and you don't need special ingredients. I keep all these things stocked in the fridge or freezer.

Protein Fruit Shake

Shake Base:

a few handfuls of ice
~1.5 cups of soymilk
vanilla flavored protein powder (follow directions on the package for scoop number)

~2 tbsp coconut sorbet (a little bit goes a long way)

1 frozen banana (peeled)

Choose Your Fruit:
frozen blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or acai juice
add ~ 1 cup of frozen fruit

You can adjust the thickness of the shake and add either more soymilk or juice to thin it out.
This also makes for a good grab-and-go lunch when you are in a rush.
