I’m a fan of a big, savory and easy breakfast smoothie, so I was initially a bit skeptical of breakfast drinks. However, this protein-packed smoothie keeps me feeling fuller and more focused than “normal” breakfast. By blending the ingredients into a smoothie, your body doesn’t have to exert itself as much as usual in breaking down food to absorb nutrients, which means your body can focus on other essential processes for health. As you probably guessed, this smoothie is also packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein. So how about it? Cheers to breakfast!

Ingredients:
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled
  • 1 cup frozen wild blueberries
  • A few frozen strawberries or mango slices
  • 1 scoop protein powder*
  • 1 teaspoon raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup filtered water, rice milk or soy milk

*All protein powders are not made equal; in fact, most contain harmful substances and unnatural ingredients, so please do some research to find the best one for you. I like Garden of Life (it’s organic, raw, and vegan) and Vega One (also plant-based and dairy-free).
Steps:
  1. Combine all of the ingredients in your blender. (To make your morning prep even easier (and more cost-effective), buy fruit in bulk, prepare it and then freeze it so it’s ready to go.)
  2. Turn blender on the lowest setting, letting the powder mix in for a few seconds before increasing the power to the highest setting. Blend on high for about 1 minute or longer, until smoothly blended.
  3. Pour into a big glass and enjoy 🙂

The reason I started incorporating protein powder into my smoothies is that I stick to a mostly vegan diet and wanted to ensure my body got enough protein. If you feel your protein needs are met, leave out the protein powder and you’ll still have a delicious, nutritious and easy-on-the-digestion smoothie that your body will thank you for. Cheers!
