Eating protein in the morning rather than refined carbohydrates will keep your blood sugar levels steady, give you energy, and keep you full. This smoothie is a good way to get some healthy protein into your system. I drink them almost every morning for breakfast.
Some tips to make this smoothie extra healthy include using the following ingredients: organic protein powder, organic unsweetened vanilla almond milk, organic peanut butter without hydrogenated vegetable oils.

I’ve found that sugary breakfast such as cereals doesn’t leave me satiated. I started having butter and coconut oil in coffee for my breakfast, which is much better than having refined carbs. We cook our kids a meaty breakfast which keeps them from needing to snack before lunch. Your protein smoothie is great as it contains both protein and also good fats from avocado and peanut butter.

Actually your body only needs about 0.8mg of protein per kg per day. If you weight for example 65kg you only need approx. 52mg. This amount can easily be reached with your protein in the morning Amazing recipe 🙂
