Here is an amazing idea for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack. This shake is a complete balanced meal with one serving of fruits, one serving of veggies, healthy fats, and protein. It is a thick and creamy smoothie which can satisfy your cravings for something sweet while filling you up.

 

In a blender, start with four cubes of ice (add more if you prefer a thicker smoothie) and 1 cup of almond milk (feel free to use soy or coconut milk, if you’d like). Add ½ cup of frozen spinach, 1 banana (or 1 cup of berries), 1 tablespoon of all natural peanut butter (you can also use any other nut butter), and 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder. Blend it well and enjoy.

Choose a protein powder with at least 25 grams of protein per serving, but watch for the amount of calories per serving too. You don’t want a product full of sugar and additives, so compare brands to find the one that offers more protein with fewer calories.
