There is no better, quick and easy breakfast hack than a smoothie! Make that a protein smoothie and you are really in business! This one is no exception! Today I am sharing a great breakfast smoothie that you can whip up quick before leaving the house and you will be fueled and ready to go for the morning and won't be hungry before lunchtime comes around!
This smoothie is taking some inspiration from the peanut butter sandwich. I have used almond milk, ice, peanut butter, protein powder and some frozen mixed berries as well as a frozen banana. Do you like to add greens to your smoothie? Throw in a handful of power greens or spinach or whatever you have on hand to boost the nutrition or green factor if you like! This smoothie is low in added sugars but high in flavor. It is high in protein coming in with 22.8 grams of protein! Perfect for getting you going! This also has great fiber from the berries as well as a ton of calcium!
You can hack this smoothie by getting your "smoothie packs" ready to go whenever you do your weekly meal prep. Just stock your freezer with these packets that you can make up with the frozen fruit of your choice all in one place, you can even toss in the peanut butter and the protein powder if you want as well. Stow them in a basket in your freezer and pull them out on those busy mornings when a smoothie is in order and waz one up by adding the milk and ice. Ready, set go! Pour that into a mason jar, screw on the lid pop in a straw and you are on your way to work!
You can also mix this up any way you like. I used mixed berries, but you can use frozen strawberries, pineapple, peaches or whatever fresh frozen fruit you like best. What flavor of "jelly" do you like on your PB&J? Make it your own. Take it a step further and add in whatever delicious extras you like in a smoothie. A handful of spinach, power greens or kale. A splash of juice, or even a squeeze of agave if you like things a little sweeter. No matter what you do here you can make it delicious!
I hope you give this PB&J Protein smoothie a try and I hope you love it!
