Strawberry Protein Smoothie

I am a total fan of smoothies; I'm pretty sure I could eat one every day! I love experimenting with different ingredients and trying different combinations of fruits in my smoothies. Here's the general recipe for my favorite smoothie to make. It's creamy, delicious, and healthy at the same time! I don't usually measure when I make smoothies, so these amounts are close approximations. Also, I like my smoothies fairly thick, so you may want to put in more water or almond milk to thin it out. Feel free to add more or less of any other particular ingredient to your own taste!

5 oz. Greek yogurt (I used the peach flavor from Dannon)
1/2 frozen banana
3 frozen strawberries
2 ice cubes
2-3 strawberries (unfrozen)
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
approx. 1/4 C almond milk
approx. 1/8 C water

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend on high.

Enjoy the deliciousness of your smoothie!
