Strawberry Protein Smoothie

Portions:
1

Serving Size:
1 cup, approximately (egg whites increase volume slightly)

    Diet Types:
  • Diabetes
  • Dialysis
  • Gluten-free
  • Higher Potassium

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup fresh strawberries
  •  1/2 cup liquid pasteurized egg whites
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Preparation

  1. Place strawberries in blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients and continue blending until smooth.

Helpful hints

  • Pasteurized liquid egg white is safe to consume without cooking.
  • If substituting frozen fruit add 1/4 cup water instead of the 1/2 cup ice. The degree of “frozenness” will determine how much your blender will be able to take. It will also give a more “soft serve” consistency than a smoothie, which is great in the warmer season.
  • Adjust sugar or low calorie sweetener to taste.
