I find that a lot of people who struggle with their diet have a hard time getting in enough protein.
I'd argue that most people in general don't get enough protein.
For anyone trying to accomplish any sort of health or fitness goal ... protein is key.
So if you're somebody who could use some extra protein, you have to try this high-protein breakfast smoothie!
Breakfast Protein Smoothie Recipe
- 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tbsp of peanut butter
- 2 tbsp of oats (minute or old-fashioned oats)
- 1 scoop of Level-1 Cinnamon Cookie Batter
Before you start making the recipe, gather all of the ingredients and a blender.
1. Put all of the ingredients in the blender: the almond milk, banana, strawberries, blueberries, peanut butter, oats, and Level-1 Cinnamon Cookie Batter.
2. Blend the ingredients together on high for 30 seconds to a minute (or until you achieve the desired consistency).
3. Pour the smoothie into a cup and enjoy!
Macros Per Serving:
If you're looking to add some more calories to your shake, or if you want just a little more flavor ... you may consider adding one of these toppings!
Just make sure that you are counting the toppings on your macros. Here are some of my personal favorites:
- Sliced Banana
- Whipped Cream
Who is This Shake Good For?
This breakfast shake is certainly on the high-calorie side of things. If your goal is weight loss or fat loss ... I'd advise against this shake. You certainly can make it work in your plan ... but there are certainly better low-calorie shake recipes as well.
On the other hand, this is an awesome breakfast protein shake if you're looking to build muscle. It has close to 600 calories, 35 grams of protein, and over 60 grams of carbs! You also get a good amount of calories from fat.
It's a great, hearty protein shake to start your morning. It will certainly give you a ton of energy if nothing else!
Is This Shake Vegan Friendly?
This shake is NOT vegan friendly. The Level-1 Cinnamon Cookie Batter has milk in it. That doesn't mean you can't replace it though.
If you are vegan or follow a plant-based diet, just replace Level-1 with our plant-based protein powder, Vegan Power Pro. My favorite flavor to use for this breakfast protein shake is the classic Vanilla Creme flavor.
If you're not a vanilla fan, feel free to get creative! After all, adhering to your diet all comes down to finding foods you like, are healthy, and you can eat consistently.
