The KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series Blender: Berry Protein Smoothie

adrianneho_kitchenaid-8Blenders are one of the most important things to have in your kitchen, especially if your goal is to live a healthy lifestyle. Blending food assists in pre-digestion so your body does not have to spend extra energy absorbing the nutrients in your food. The new KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series Blender is a favorite of mine! I use the blender to make smoothies several times a week so I need something that can stand frequent use.adrianneho_kitchenaid-7After my morning workouts a protein smoothie is the first thing on my mind. The blender quickly blends everything from frozen fruits and vegetables and crushes ice! Easy to use, it creates the perfectly blended smoothie with no chunks in sight. Check out one of my favorite recipes below…adrianneho_kitchenaid-9Power Berry Smoothie

Greek yogurt is high in protein and contains probiotics that aid in digestion, which is especially important in the morning. Almond butter contains healthy fats that improve hair, skin, and provide energy, as well as fiber to keep you full longer. Frozen berries contain antioxidants that allow your body to fight off illness. Finally Hemp protein is an easy to digest source of protein that wont affect the taste of your smoothie. Add honey as a natural sweetener that won’t jolt your blood sugar and you’re good to go!
