Here is a quick and delicious protein smoothie that has a perfect blend of protein and carbohydrates.  It also has some texture with the addition of almonds, making it a more filling choice.  It would make a perfect to go breakfast or post workout snack.  Use frozen fruit if you prefer a colder smoothie or you can add ice if you are using fresh fruit.
