We love smoothies in our house. My husband, Ben, and I both start our day with a delicious protein smoothie. It’s such a great, easy breakfast option when you don’t have a lot of time to cook. Also, neither of us are big breakfast people, so drinking a smoothie is satisfying, filling, but not overly heavy. Ben’s most favorite breakfast is a chocolate peanut butter protein smoothie.
Contrary to most American breakfast items that are nothing but carbs and sugar, this protein shake is packed with protein, healthy fat, and a small amount of healthy carbohydrates. You will not feel hungry an hour later. This breakfast will easily keep you satiated until lunch thanks to the protein and fat content.
Plus, it has zero refined sugar or refined carbs that tend to cause a crash in energy, insulin spikes, and weight gain. This smoothie is gluten-free and dairy-free.
Even your kids will love this healthy treat!
