The Tropicana Calorie Control
Mangos are on their way, Pakistani awaam! Get ready to go gaga over them. But how about, this time you up your game a little, combine them with pineapple chunks, a cup of fresh yogurt, some brown sugar for some added sweetness and a teaspoon of flax seeds. Blend it all well with ice and enjoy! Carries a good amount of protein and is low on the calories.
The Citrus Protein Burst
Okay so all that calorie talk, what about our protein obsession? Can’t forget about that now, can we? Add two cups of fresh orange juice to two tablespoons of peanut butter (preferably smooth) and a handful of ice cubes. Blend well and drink away all the protein goodness!
All Greens in a Glass
If you are looking for something super refreshing after a hard day at college or work, something that doesn’t add to the pounds on your thunder thighs, then this is a must have. Take a cup of plain yogurt, Greek yogurt is preferable though but some ammas might present you with a chittar for asking so let’s just go for the plain dahi that comes from the market. Take a handful of spinach leaves, and then you need one cup of green grapes and a glass of chilled water. Sugar is optional. Also, if you can get your hands-on avocado for this, add a few small chunks.
The Peanut Berry Tornado
Who doesn’t love strawberries? They’re such an exciting part of the entire summers! Take a cup of strawberries, chopped up and add around two tablespoons of smooth peanut butter to it. The next part is totally up to you: if you want it like a smoothie then add a cup of yogurt, if not then add milk to make it into your regular glass of milkshake.
Choco Banana Frenzy
You thought we’d forget all about bananas and how they drive us bananas in the summers? Nah! Take one banana, cut into smaller pieces and cooking chocolate that measures almost three tablespoons. At this point, if you are obsessed with protein powders you can add a tablespoon of that as well. Add a cup of milk to the mixture along with crushed ice, blend and gulp gulp gulp!
