I whipped this smoothie up on a whim after a run, and loved it! I am not usually a fan of protein powders - the aftertaste of sugar-substitutes just doesn’t do it for me - but the Kura powders skip all the nasty stuff, and taste pretty good. I also like that they’re filled with probiotics and offer 5g of fiber per serving. Hooray for gut health (read more about this here and here)!
If you love ice-cream like I do, give this one a go! It’s dessert-y and delish.
- 1/3 cup vanilla protein powder (I used Kura Nutrition Grass Fed Dairy Protein)
- 1 cup 2% milk
- 1 cup vanilla skyr or vanilla Greek yogurt
- 2 cups frozen pineapple
- 2 tbsp coconut cream
- 1/2 pomegranate
To remove the pomegranate seeds (arils) from the fruit:
- Roll the pomegranate back and forth on a hard surface to break the inner membranes.
- Cut the pomegranate in half. Hold the pomegranate half face down over a bowl. Tap the top of the pomegranate with a wooden spoon to loosen the arils from the fruit. Set the arils aside.
To make the smoothie:
- Add the vanilla Kura powder, milk, vanilla skyr/Greek yogurt, frozen pineapple and coconut cream to the blender container. Blend the ingredients until smooth.
- Pour the smoothie into 2 serving glasses. Top each glass with pomegranate arils.
