Protein-Packed Smoothie (Recipe)

Protein-Packed Smoothie (Recipe)


Protein is one of the most important nutrients to jumpstart your day. But skip the greasy, fatty eggs and bacon, and go for a protein-packed smoothie instead. Here’s one of my favorites.

Protein-Packed Smoothie.


  • 1 Cup spinach, kale, or a combination of the two
  • 1 Ripe banana
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 Cup almond milk
  • 1/2 Cup frozen berries (or ice, if you prefer)

Blend spinach, banana, peanut butter, and milk in a smoothie. Add frozen berries/ice, and blend until smooth.
