Recipe: High Protein Smoothie

After years of eating egg whites for breakfast, I got inspired by my friend Matthew Prescott’s book Food is the Solution.

The breakfast smoothies in the book inspired me to make the following my daily breakfast for the past couple of months.

Chocolate or Vanilla Green Berry High Protein Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Almond Cashew Milk
  • 1/4 cup Blueberries
  • 1/4 cup Blackberries
  • 1/4 cup Raspberries
  • 1/4 cup Strawberries
  • 1 scoop of Chocolate or Vanilla protein powder (I use Garden of Eden Brand) 
  • 1 cup Smoothie Greens (Kale, Spinach blend) 

Directions:

In your blender pour in 2 cups of Almond Cashew milk. Then add one scoop of vanilla protein powder. Then add one scoop of chocolate protein powder. Then add in the 1/4 cup of each of the berries. Then add the 1 cup of smoothie greens. 

I do them in this order with the protein powder as the second ingredient; otherwise, it doesn’t blend as evenly. Puree on high until desired smoothness then pours into your preferred smoothie glass. I use a 28-ounce plastic Jaxx Protein shake bottle, and the mix fills it right to the top. The one I use is from this set with the portion container cups.
