It’s no secret that I love smoothies especially for breakfast. I have a smoothie for breakfast about 3-5 days a week, usually 5 to be honest. But if my kids eat up all the bananas before Thursday then 3 smoothies it is.
When starting out with smoothies it can often be intimidating because there’s so many recipes out there. But I prefer non complex smoothies something that doesn’t require a degree in culinary arts to produce. My recipes are so easy to make I can toss the ingredients in the blender while my kids are putting on their shoes and take my first sip by the time they are done putting on their back packs.
When coming up with my smoothie recipes I use ingredients I already know I love like bananas, tropical fruit and Silk’s NEW Protein Nutmilk. This milk is a delicious combination of almond and cashew milk and packs 10 grams of soy-free, plant based goodness.
As a vegan and a runner it’s important to me that I get enough protein in my diet. This smoothie recipe is complete with 20g of plant based protein. Most vegan breakfast options don’t come close to this much protein. Prior to adding Silk’s NEW Protein Nutmilk to my smoothies, my previous almond milk had only 1g of protein per cup. Silk’s NEW Protein Nutmilk has 10x that amount of protein and is creamier. Combined with 1 scoop of my plant based protein powder this smoothie gives me more than enough protein to tackle my early morning mommy routine and then a 30 minute workout with my trainer followed by a 30 minute run.
This smoothie is delicious! My husband and Elle both love it. If you’re a beginner smoothie drinker, this smoothie is a great start.
