15g spinach

60g strawberries

150mL coconut milk

30g vanilla protein powder

You can use whatever milk you prefer. I have found 200mL is the consistency I like.


This is also the order I add the ingredients to the cup for best and consistent blending.

Here are a few notes from me about protein. I recommend you find a protein powder that works well for you. Protein is so good for us—every cell in our body is made of protein, and we need it. Protein is very good for women, but most women do not get enough. Protein helps regulate your hormones. Protein helps your metabolism. Your protein intake can affect your sleep, hormones (such as cortisol), energy, metabolism, and many other things about your health. Feel free to do your own research and learn about the benefits and importance of protein. Precision Nutrition has some great information about protein.
