Protein Breakfast Smoothie

Submitted by: DREAMGURU

Introduction

During the week, my morning time is very limited and I used to skip breakfast. After refocusing to ensure I ate something filling, healthy and quick EVERY morning, I started to make these. Usually, I make two at a time, one for my wife as well and we will drink it before heading out to our work outs. During the week, my morning time is very limited and I used to skip breakfast.

Directions

Want to be nice to the blender and give it a second to spin up before it has to crunch hard stuff, so I put the soft ingredients in first.

Add the milk and banana in first, then the whey powder.
Then add the frozen strawberries and finally the ice on top.

Pulse the blender until the sound of ice grinding stops, then blend medium for about 30 seconds.

If you want a smoothie that is a little thinner, you can add 1/4 of cold water.

Makes 1 serving

    This is great! I also added a scoop of peanut butter. I didn't add strawberries, just because I didn't have them. But this is a great base to get really creative with produce intake. - 4/3/11

    I didn't have the banana or strawberries, so I substituted 1/2 C blueberries...Yum! It wasn't so much that a former non-breakfast eater couldn't even consider trying it. Thanks! - 1/28/10

    I do not recommend using whey protein. It's just sludge that the gov't decided. to feed feed us. It pollutes our rivers and is toxic. I suggest Pea protein. I would also use Almond milk 30 calories in original blend and twice the protein and organic strawberries. Banana is fine, peel blocks pesticid - 7/17/13

    Very yummy! Had it for lunch today to try it out. My son has been asking for smoothies and I wanted to find one quick & easy, and also be able to give him some extra protein. Will have to shop the whey protein in the future but for now will use what our store had. Very good. - 1/5/13

  • Also wanted to say that I made this for my kids, minus the protein, and they loved it. They ask for it now. They are such picky eaters and I'm happy that this gets them away from the sugary cereals. - 8/8/12
