Hello Guys I’m back with the new blog 5 SIMPLE PROTEIN RICH SMOOTHIES RECIPES YOU MUST TRY
A shake for breakfast? Why not when it’s healthy, right?
Smoothies are a great breakfast when you are on-the-go, however, if you are not using the right balance of ingredients you can end up creating a big sugar bomb, making them a less than ideal choice.
Of course, adding fruit and veggies to a smoothie is great, but adding protein to a smoothie is vital as it helps to balance your blood sugar, minimize your cravings and keep you fueled and full for hours to come.
Although protein powder is a simple way to add protein to a smoothie, it’s not everyone’s favorite and it is essentially a form of processed food, therefore opting for whole foods is always the best choice.
1.) CHOCOLATE, PEANUT BUTTER AND BANANA SHAKE
How could this not be good though? It has three of the best flavors, banana, peanut butter, and chocolate all together in one decadent morning treat.
You’d never guess that a cup of spinach is hiding in this delicious chocolate and peanut butter shake.
large overripe bananas, peeled, sliced, and frozen -2
original almond milk (or more to thin as desired) – 1 cup
ice -3/4 cup
creamy peanut butter -1/4 cup
unsweetened cocoa powder – 2 Tbsp
vanilla extract – 1/2 tsp
Add all ingredients to a blender a process until well pureed. Serve immediately.
*The overripe bananas will add sweetness for the smoothie so use some that have a generous amount of speckles, don’t use black bananas though those are just gross.
This is one of the PROTEIN RICH SMOOTHIES RECIPES.
