  1. Place cranberry juice, banana, orange, strawberries, sherbet, ice, and protein powder in the bowl of a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth, about one minute. Adjust the consistency by adding more sherbet if it's too thin, or more cranberry juice if it's too thick. Pour into two glasses and use a straw!

This is a great way to ingest you whey protein! If you are anything like me, you may have a hard time just mixing it in milk or water. I made a couple changes to this recipe using what I prefer and what I had on hand. I think the cranberry juice would be good but I only had apple juice. I also substituted the serbet for low fat vanilla yogurt. The blend of the strawberries, bannana and orange was wonderful! I couldn't taste even a hint of the whey (which I used the unflavored kind)!!!!! Thanks for the recipe, I now have a new lunch!!!

There are so many different flavors in this that it's hard for me to believe that I found it kind of watery and blandish. I gave it a second chance, using all frozen except the orange, so that I could leave out the ice cubes. It didn't help. Dunno...

I used a cup of drained mandarin oranges instead but Loved it! My 8 yr old daughter even loved it! What a great way to start your day!

I used a frozen banana, which eliminated the need for ice cubes. I also used frozen raspberry yogurt, instead of sherbet. I made no other changes. VERY good. I enjoyed this a lot.

A healthy smoothie at it's best, my friends and I we've tried this smoothie and was hooked, I have tried other ways of making a healthy smoothie to hide the protein powder taste that I add and this smoothie is the only one that does (so far..) THANKS!!!!

Good, filling smoothie! Really easy to prepare. The only thing I'll do differently next time is use vanilla whey powder. I used chocolate whey protein this time & the flavor was a little weird with the cranberry juice.

We LOVED this smoothie! We used cran-raspberry juice and orange sherbert instead of raspberry because it's what we had on hand....YUM!!

Loved the flavors! I had a problem with it being too runny, but I'm going to experiment. I used mandarin oranges in place of the orange, so that could have had something to do with the consistency problem. At any rate, the flavors are great and I can't wait to make it again. One of my favorite smoothy recipes from this site! Thanks!
