Helpful hints

  • Add one or two ice cubes to make smoothie thicker. Add an extra ice cube if you prefer a milkshake consistency or put in the freezer for five minutes before drinking.
  • Ask your dietitian about recommended protein powder brands.
  • If the protein powder sticks to the side of the blender, turn if off and use a spatula to loosen it from the sides. Replace lid and keep blending until smooth.
