The 1-1-1 Quick & Delicious Smoothie !

One of the fastest, healthiest, and most filling snacks my daughter and I make is the 1-1-1 smoothie. We make it for breakfast, and for mid-morning or late-afternoon snack times. It’s so easy and delicious.

Here’s why it’s called a 1-1-1 smoothie: we use 1 cup of high-protein milk, 1 frozen banana, and 1 cup of fruit.

The reason this smoothie is filling is because we use high protein milk. We love the Fairlife brand of milk. High protein milk is cold-filtered and results in milk that is 50% more protein and 50% less sugar than regular milk. It’s also lactose-free.

Here’s what that means in terms of nutritional information. For the 0 % skim milk, there are 80 calories, 14 grams of protein and 6 grams of sugar in a 1 cup serving.

So, when you combine 1 cup of Fairlife milk, 1 cup of mixed berries, and 1 banana into a smoothie, we’re talking about a delicious and nutritious drink in terms of protein, potassium, Vitamin B, and fiber.

To make this smoothie, we use the Magic Bullet. It’s a compact blender and the mixing container that comes with the blender is the perfect size to hold the 1-1-1 smoothie.

Here’s the recipe:

1 c Fairlife high protein milk
1 c mixed berries (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries)
1 frozen banana

Combine in the tall cup of the Magic Bullet or in any other blender and blend until smooth.

  1. Thanks Mary! Mark is also a big fan of the fruit smoothie. Instead of milk, he adds Greek yoghurt which is also high protein. Occasionally he’ll throw in a avocado as well. Wonderful midday snack, especially during the hot summer months!

    1. I love Mark’s idea of adding Greek yogurt for the protein. Haven’t tried an avocado yet, but you’re inspiring me to try it!
