    […] Splenda Essentials with 1 gram of fibre. I tried the sweetener packets by adding them to my oatmeal, my protein smoothie and to my coffee.  To be honest I could detect a difference in my coffee, but not in my oatmeal.. I also added a packet to my protein smoothie.  I don’t normally sweeten up my smoothie – but the 1 packet of Splenda really made did make it taste better. I must admit I’m not much of a baker because typically I find most recipes too complicated for me to follow, but I found a TON of great recipes on the Splenda® Essentialsâ„¢ website.  There are salad recipes, dessert recipes and even breakfast recipes.  Oh! And if you’e looking for a really healthy start to your day, here’s a link to my healthy Strawberry/Banana/Spinach Protein Smoothie. […]

    Wow, this is so close to my after bike-ride or breakfast smoothie! I add ice and a bit less milk, but I’ll have to try adding the spinach as well! I’m a big fan of spinach salad and stir fry, but it hasn’t crossed my mind to put it in a blender with some fruit. I’ll be trying this after my next trip to market.

    Does adding protein powder to a smoothie change the taste at all?

      It depends on the flavour of the protein powder. I prefer vanilla powders with no artificial sweeteners in them so that they only add a light vanilla taste to it.
