How to make a protein smoothie less frothy?

protein shake

We try to make smoothies with protein powder, fruit, milk, and ice, and it always seems too frothy at the top. I’ve tried to look it up finding only a few solutions. I’ve heard that less liquid prevents froth, but I’m not sure if it’s true.

Low Calorie Smoothie Recipe

Low Calorie Smoothie Recipe

Low Calorie Smoothie RecipeHere’s a novel approach to recording a Low Calorie Smoothie Recipe that I really love. OK, it is a bit long, but the narration and background music make it a pleasure to watch.

This is a very basic smoothie recipe that uses bananas as the only fruit. The addition of soy milk to the recipe makes this a great low calorie smoothie recipe for those who suffer from lactose intolerance. Just skip the optional yogurt if this is the case.

I think you’ll have to agree that the smoothie could be made in a few minutes, rather than the nearly 9 minutes that Cam takes in the recording. To end up with two great tasting portions of smoothies, with only about 233 calories each, in that amount of time is a great find.

Enjoy!

Low Calorie Smoothie Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 whole bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 1 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 6 ounces vanilla yogurt (optional)
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Blend the bananas, soy milk and yogurt until smooth. Add the ice and blend until ice is finely chopped and well blended. Add honey and vanilla extract and blend till mixed fully.

Pour this into two glasses and enjoy the fruits of your labors from making this low calorie smoothie recipe.

Making a Vanilla Smoothie Without Ice Cream

vanilla smoothie without ice creamEveryone knows how delicious a vanilla smoothie is, but enjoying a vanilla smoothie without ice cream can have all the taste without the sugary calories that most ice cream contains.  The secret to making this taste great, whether it’s a vanilla smoothie without ice cream or one with it, is the vanilla.

Vanilla Smoothie Without Ice Cream

It is really easy to make a delicious, healthy Vanilla Smoothie without ice cream.

1 cup yogurt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup fresh orange juice
1 cup milk

To make your smoothie:

Facts to Help Spice Up Your Vanilla Smoothie

Vanilla Beans

Vanilla is really delicious. Whenever I have my choice of flavors in ice cream or cake, I choose vanilla. It is my favorite flavor. Yummy!

Everyone knows that vanilla tastes great, but do you also know that vanilla flavoring comes from orchids? Although it is native to Mexico, it can grow throughout the tropics. It grows on a vine and climbs up a tree, pole or other support. It is often found growing in the woods but is also grown on plantations.

Vanilla Extract

Do you know that vanilla is the second most expensive spice after saffron? It may surprise you, but some shops sell vanilla beans for $2 to $3 each. That may sound expensive, but the beans are of very high quality. Remember, pure vanilla extract has no sugar added and the delicious vanilla smell will last forever. If someone offers you vanilla extract at a cheaper price, you should think twice. The less expensive extracts can be adulterated and not as high of quality. Be careful that you get what you really want!

Types of Vanilla Extract

Organic Vanilla Extract

If you love vanilla as much as I do, you may curious about the different types of vanilla extract. Bourbon vanilla or Bourbon-Madagascar vanilla is a particular type of vanilla plant cultivated on Madagascar and Reunion Island, also known as the “Bourbon” Islands. Bourbon vanilla beans are most commonly used for the vanilla extract you find at the supermarket. Mexican vanilla is the king of vanilla extracts. Tahitian vanilla is a more rare type of vanilla, but its known for its fruity aroma. West Indian Vanilla is a vine forb/herb.

Growing Vanilla

The best vanilla is grown under the best conditions. It will grow better in a hot, humid climate. For healthy vines, moderate rainfall is best.

Health Benefits of Vanilla

Another surprising thing about vanilla is that it is a healthy choice. It can help to reduce fevers. Vanilla also increases the levels of catecholamines, including adrenaline. It has been shown to be able to block quorum sensing in bacteria, so it aids the immune system. It has also been described as an aphrodisiac.

Vanilla can also be used as a sweet treat when you’re trying to lose weight. Diet pills may seem like a quick way to lose those extra pounds, but exercising and eating better is the healthier way to shed extra weight.

If you are craving something sweet to drink, instead of drinking high calorie sodas or soft drinks, try a vanilla smoothie without ice cream.

Knowing its benefits, there’s no reason to feel guilty about indulging in healthy vanilla treats. A delicious and healthy choice is a Vanilla Smoothie without ice cream!
