Nothing says “good morning” like a fresh smoothie to kick-start your day. Many of us are not big breakfast people, so why not enjoy a drink rather than trying to prepare and consume an entire meal? This will help you get the nutrients needed to get going in the morning, in addition to filling you up.
One of the best nutrients to consume in the morning is protein. One serving of this healthy and satisfying morning smoothie provides over 18 grams protein, which is about 1/3 of the recommended daily value (source). Also featured in this smoothie is a healthy amount of fiber and potassium. Enjoy!
