I am a huge fan of working out in the morning. I like to get up, have coffee and a small bite to eat and then go straight to the gym for a good run and my Good Morning America fix (I am a huge Robin Roberts fan). Post gym, I am always in need of a refuel before heading to work. One of my go-to breakfast options has become this berry smoothie recipe. It’s very filling and full of protein, calcium and vitamins, but not too calorie dense. For me, this smoothie hits the spot and gives me boost I need to start my day.
- 1c Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- ½ c 0% Plain Greek Yogurt
- ½ Scoop Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (I like the 365 Brand sold at Whole Foods but any brand is great)
- ¾ c Frozen Mixed Berries
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until mixture is smooth. Serves 2.
**Note- This is not a very sweet recipe (which I like), however, if you prefer a sweeter smoothie Blue Agave Syrup, Honey, Turbinado Sugar, Truvia, Splenda, etc.. all work great.
