Food Friday: Chocolate berry breakfast smoothie

This protein packed smoothie makes a quick breakfast or after workout snack.  It's fast and flavorful and it seems almost like treating yourself to a milkshake.  Who doesn't love that?

Chocolate Berry Breakfast Smoothie

4-5 ice cubes
1/2 cup frozen berries of your choice
1 cup fat free milk
One scoop chocolate protein powder (I like Body Fortress Whey Protein)

Place ice cubes, berries and milk in a blender.  Let stand for a couple minutes to allow the milk to get nice and cold.  Use ice crusher setting to break up ice cubes.  Add protein powder and blend until combined. Enjoy!

Variations: Substitute one half frozen banana for berries or use vanilla protein powder in place of chocolate.
