Why do kids’ sports games always seem to fall right over meal times? Honestly, it is like we have either a practice or a game scheduled over the dinner house at least three times a week. I need some kind of snack that will keep my kids’ energy up through sports practice until we can get home and have a late dinner. This layered smoothie recipe is a simple way to get some protein in their bellies to last them till dinner.
HIGH PROTEIN LAYERED SMOOTHIE RECIPE
ADDING PROTEIN TO FRUIT SMOOTHIES
Fruit smoothies can be a delicious way to get in your daily amounts of fruits and vegetables, but they can leave you feeling hungry again before you know it. Sneak in extra protein into the smoothie by using a high-protein fro-yo or Greek yogurt. It adds a delicious tang and texture to the smoothie, and it will fill you up for longer!

TIPS FOR SUPER DELICIOUS SMOOTHIES
Just a little smoothie-making tip: When your bananas start to get too brown to eat plain, peel them and put them in a freezer bag. I keep a stash of frozen bananas in my freezer for smoothies or banana bread all the time.
Using frozen berries and bananas will yield a thick, ice cream-like smoothie. If you want to be able to drink the smoothie through a straw, stream in a small amount of milk at a time until you get the consistency you are looking for.
