Designer Whey: Two NEW Smoothie Recipes!

By now you all probably know that I love my Designer Whey products. So whenever a box of products shows up on my doorstep, I get really excited! Through my relationship with FitFluential, I was provided these products for free. All thoughts and opinions, as usual, are my own.

Designer Whey has partnered with Smári yogurt, so Designer Whey also graciously included coupons so I could check out the Icelandic yogurt.

Smári is available in four flavors: pure, vanilla, blueberry, and strawberry. My favorite is the vanilla! Icelandic yogurt is similar to Greek yogurt, however it is thicker and has more protein.

Smári is made in Wisconsin with organic milk from grass-fed cows that are from small family farms. Their fruit comes from Oregon and has zero preservatives and the little sugar they use is organic cane sugar. This is an ingredient list I can get behind.

I tend to not eat a ton of yogurt because the amount of sugar is usually ridiculously high, and then if you add something else in the mix, your healthy snack becomes a sugar bomb. Smári has 20 grams of protein and 6 grams of sugar. Smári may not have a gazillion flavors like other yogurt companies, but the ingredient list, protein and sugar content make this yogurt a #1 pick for my household.

Of course with the new Designer Whey products I had to make a few smoothies to share with you all.

Put in your favorite racing pint glass and enjoy! I loved the thickness that the yogurt gave the smoothie, and next time I wouldn’t even add the milk.

My second recipe is a more tropical one, because who doesn’t want to be on the beach when the weather starts getting colder?
