My husband is a creature of habit. When he finds something that he likes, he sticks with it, that is until he is sick of it. The smoothie sensation has been going on for quite some time in our house though – he will mix it up a bit, but it always has one consistent ingredient – protein powder. Over the years he has tried a couple different brands – but lately he has been looking for something new.
Through the Stonyfield Farms Blogger Club, I was introduced to The Healthy Skoop, this plant-based protein powder. For every serving of Skoop sold, Healthy Skoop donates one serving of free fresh fruits and veggies to a school lunch program in America. Come on, how can you not love that? Fortunately I was given the opportunity to try some (chocolate…YUM!!), and now I am sold. We tried it two ways – the first was just to mix some with milk in this handy cup with a whisk attachment. Now I am not a huge protein powder person, and this was not my favorite. It was just a little grainy for me, although the flavor was great.
Then I decided to make a smoothie – my favorite kind, with some grassfed stonyfield farms vanilla yogurt, peanut butter and a frozen banana and WOW!! It was a complete winner – my daughter and I were fighting over seconds. The Healthy Skoop may have just made me into a smoothie lover too.
