Strawberry Vanilla Bean Torte Smoothie

I have a protein smoothie recipe I just created that I'd like to share.

I ordered a 10-pack sample bag of Syntrax Nectar whey isolate protein powder (I ordered from Last night I tried Strawberry Kiwi in water, and I think the kiwi gave it a weird aftertaste. So today I decided to try the Vanilla Bean Torte, but didn't think it would be that great just with water.

I ended up making a smoothie with strawberries. I used a base recipe for a strawberry-banana smoothie I made before I got any protein powder. Here is that recipe so you can tweak it to your liking.

1 cup skim milk
3/4 to 1 cup frozen strawberries
1 chopped banana
1/4 cup Splenda
1 tsp. vanilla extract

I don't currently have any flavor syrups so I have to rely on fruit. But I love fruit so that's not an issue :) I have a lot of fun experimenting and below is the protein smoothie recipe!

1 cup skim milk
12-14 strawberries
1 serving Nectar Vanilla Bean Torte protein powder
Approx. 6 ice cubes
1/2 to 3/4 cup Splenda

That recipe made enough for two sizable smoothies. I don't detect any aftertaste at all...I am hooked on Syntrax Nectar!
