Having a smoothie for breakfast is fast, practical, nutritious, colorful, fun and easy on the go! But many times people tend to get hungry fast after consuming their fruits in a blended form in the morning. That is why loading it with a healthy variety of toppings is a whole different ballgame. I personly love love love the pink color and the delicious combination of strawberry- banana and that is why I haven’t added green leaves as I usually do in my other smoothies. But there was always something missing for me to call it a meal. Not until I discovered this beyond delicious vanilla protein powder. It is so rare that I buy something in a packed form from the store. I’m totally into real food, but this delicate addition takes this smoothie to the next level. So I encourage you to check it out for yourself. If you choose not to use the powder you might want to add a date or two for sweetness and maybe a few tbsp of oats to call it a meal. If you have no time to have it in a bowl, make it more smooth by adding more liquids or just use unfrozen bananas.
1 cup coconut or soy or almond milk
2 frozen bananas
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp hemp seeds
1 tsp flax seed
2 fresh strawberries (optional)
1). In a blender, place milk, bananas, strawberries and protein powder.
2). Blend until very smooth. If the consistency is too too think to blend and a few drops of milk or water. Transfer to a bowl, sprinkle the toppings and enjoy immediately.
Here is another protein powder that I really love:
