Time is hard to find these days, and for many this means racing out the door to work or school before setting up our amazing bodies for the day. From a metabolic perspective, I believe breakfast is important to kick start the body into gear to ensure that proper digestion and other bodily processes occur easily throughout the day. If like me, you’re in a rush and not able to wait for the toast to pop up in the morning, smoothies are a quick and easy to get in an abundance of vitamins, mineral, healthy fats and PROTEIN!
This blueberry protein smoothie can be made dairy free and is a great source of antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids, an easily digestible form of protein, and most importantly tastes great!
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 200ml Almond Milk (feel free to use dairy or any other type of nut or rice milk)
- 1 scoop Vanilla Clean Lean Protein (or any vanilla whey or pea protein)
- 1/2 Banana
- 1 tbsp Almond Butter
- 2 tbsp Chia Seeds
- 1 large handful of spinach leaves
If you’re really short on time, whip up this smoothie at dinner time and place in the fridge overnight. In the morning, shake in a shaker or stir to mix again and you’re ready to go!
