High protein smoothie for breakfast is a great alternative to a regular breakfast. Most of the times I either skip breakfast or eat very little, so smoothie fits the bill for putting some calories and nutrients in my system without much effort and preparation and it is much better than sugary cereal with minimal nutrients.
I put protein powder in this recipe because often given the concentration of carbs we have in our diet we over-consume carbs and don’t have enough protein.
Feel free to add some ice which will definitely make it taste better, just make sure your blender is powerful enough to crush ice.
You can always replace skim milk with almond milk, for example, if you are lactose intolerant or simply don’t like milk.
This is a pretty simple recipe and ingredients are very similar to other smoothie options. It has been designed like this on purpose. I don’t like complicated ways to do things and I prefer to keep less rather than more food in my refrigerator. Make your smoothie out of simple ingredients, enjoy it and go on with your life, don’t waste it being stuck in the kitchen.
