My Morning Protein Smoothie Recipe

Protein Smoothie Recipe

Chocolate Protein Smoothie_Tamera Mowry

With school starting again (and soon The Real), mornings are busier than ever in my house! I really try and make nutrition a priority for myself, even when I have a lot going on. I know that it is really important for me to make sure that I am starting my day off with something healthy. So, recently I sought out to make a protein smoothie because I knew that it would be a realistic morning meal option for me.

I am excited to share this recipe with you guys because it has proven to be such an awesome on-the-go breakfast! This particular recipe is quick to throw together, tastes really good, and is packed with protein and quality nutrition. The protein powder I use is organic, vegan and plant-based, and I also add additional ingredients like hemp hearts (for protein), chia flour and cacao nibs (for fiber).

If you crave a little more variety, you can definitely add other ingredients like almond butter or half a banana to make the recipe your own!

Let me know if you guys try my protein smoothie, and how you like it!

Chocolate Protein Smoothie | Serves: 1 | Prep Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 scoops of vegan protein powder, I like to use: Orgain Organic Slim Weight Loss Powder, Chocolate
  • 1 tsp of cacao nibs
  • 1 tbsp of hemp hearts
  • ½ tsp of psyllium husks
  • 1 tbsp of chia flour
  • ½ cup of almond milk
  • ½ cup of water
  • ¼ cup of coconut water
  • 5-6 large ice cubes

Directions: In a blender (I like to use this single serving blender) combine all ingredients, and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Extra tip: If you are serving this smoothie to others (or are feeling fancy yourself!), rim your glass with honey and dip it in coconut (pictured above) for a very pretty presentation.

    Sounds good! The reminder of back to school, fall and only fours months left of the year 2017! Wow! I’m hoping that this new season will bring forth opportunities,joy,peace and love. As this year had much shifts,losses and sadness. Throughout God has been with me for strength and provisions.
