Strawberry Lemonade Protein Smoothie

Strawberry Lemonade Protein Smoothie

Nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer day than ice cold lemonade…until now!  This frothy, light and refreshing smoothie is the perfect treat to cool you down and treat those taste buds to something sweet.   This smoothie was inspired by a McDonalds billboard I saw advertising their Strawberry lemonade drink.  I knew that it was in no way healthy or good for you so I decided to take to my kitchen to make a protein packed treat that also has your Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) so you will reap the absolute most from your hard work in or out of the gym!

Check out this side by side comparison to see how the McDonalds drink stacked up against my smoothie.

Both are 16oz.

McDonalds:                   Fit Home & Health:

Take a look at that Carb & Sugar intake!! And that’s JUST in a drink!  This will hopefully serve as a huge eye opener to not just pay attention to the calories and think you’re getting something good or healthy, look past the calories and always check out what matters….fat, carbs, sugars and proteins.
