EASY Protein smoothie!
This is my favorite breakfast lately! Its very easy, but jam-packed with nutrition! Ive been drinking one every morning for a few weeks now, and I’ve noticed a huge bump in energy and a light feeling in the tummy! I love it!
You can make all sorts of variations of this! Ive used blackberries, Acai, and other berries by themselves, but my favorite is the berry blend.
The great thing about these berries, is they have kale in them! daily veggie intake-CHECK! They are also pre-proportioned…so that makes it so easy! Want to know the other great thing? I buy these at Costco!!
So, here are the other ingredients I use…
This almond milk is awesome! Guess what? Costco! Yes, two of these ingredients are Costco finds!
The Protein powder that I use (its called JYM) is one that my husband loves and buys, and it comes from jimstopanni.com. It has three different forms of protein that breaks down slowly, which allows for muscle building, but also energy. It also tastes great. My favorite is Tahitian vanilla. The great thing is, you dont have to be “building muscle” to get the great benefits of the protein!
I also use Integral collagen from trimhealthymama.com, and the Gentle sweet is from them too. I love their products! Ive noticed such a difference with my hair and skin since I started using collagen! You should try it!
because of the low fat and low carb ingredients, this smoothie stays in the FP (Fuel Pull) category. Yay for guiltless pleasures!
Of course, you can use your own brands of these products…they do not have to be these brands.
Also, My husband spoiled me rotten and bought me a Vitamix. Can I just tell you…it makes making smoothies quite the expereience! I love my vitamix!
Heres my baby! His name is Theadore. Teddy, if you love him as much as I do. 😉 He’s named after one of my favorite Presidents. 😉
