Break out the blender, because we’re starting 2020 out with a handful of protein-packed breakfast smoothies that will fill you up and fuel you for the day that lies ahead. Packed with everything from protein-dense spinach and peanut butter to immune-supporting lemon and ginger to gut-friendly yogurt probiotics, these morning smoothies are the perfect jumpstart to any day.
Did you know spinach is one of the most protein-dense greens? Combine that with a hearty scoop of peanut butter, a banana, and a cup of dairy-free milk, and this smoothie from The Baker Upstairs packs a protein-rich punch that’ll keep you full way longer than any ole breakfast muffin.
Start your day with protein, probiotics, and an immunity-boosting burst of fresh lemon, ginger, and turmeric in this cheery smoothie from Foxes Love Lemons. You can even add a handful of spinach or baby kale for an added dose of greens.
Love a crumble-capped peach cobbler for dessert? Then give this breakfast smoothie variation from Oh So Delicioso a blender whirl. With fresh (or frozen) peaches and banana for sweetness, cinnamon and nutmeg for spice, and oats and protein powder for a digestive-friendly dose of fiber and protein, this decadent smoothie tastes good enough to be dessert.
You’d never know there’s a half cup of spinach hiding in this chocolaty treat from our own archives. Banana helps to sweeten, while almond butter offers a heap of healthy fats to help keep you full.
Want an ultra-creamy smoothie without the addition of dairy? Try adding avocado! Not only does the avocado addy a super silky texture, but it also adds healthy fats to help fill you up, as well as a ton of body-healthy vitamins and minerals. This recipe, from Chocolate Covered Katie, combines half an avocado with the dairy-free milk of your choice (try coconut milk for ultra, ultra creaminess), vanilla, and a pinch of salt.
