It's hard to get enough protein into our diet and protein powder is such a great way to sneak it in without even trying.

You can use any type of protein powder you like in this recipe and the result is a delicious strawberry cheesecake flavoured smoothie!

Getting started
2

Wash the strawberries and drain them well.

3

Place them into a large jug or food processor. Cover them with the coconut milk, preferably organic.

Note: If you don't have coconut milk at home, use full-fat cream - the amount of net carbs is very close and won't make a difference!

4

Add ground flaxseed and whey protein (strawberry, vanilla or plain flavours - all these work well with this smoothie).

5

(optional)
Add liquid stevia.

6

Now, pour some water in, depending on how thick you want your smoothie to be. Blend everything together using a hand blender or food processor.

These smoothies are great for pre or post exercise but because of the ingredients, to avoid separation, they should be drunk immediately and don't store very well.

Ingredients

 ½ cup coconut milk
 1 cup strawberries
