Protein smoothies are a great breakfast option. Quick and easy-to-make, they also keep you feeling full for longer than a regular smoothie. Plus protein is a building block for cells, so it’s important for your muscle health and immunity. You can use protein powder, or almond butter if you’re looking for a natural option.
Here are some tasty smoothie ideas you can whip up in a jiffy:

#1 Strawberry Smoothie

Blend together 1cup strawberries, 1 scoop protein powder, crushed ice and ¾ cup nonfat curd.

#2 Mango Carrot Smoothie

Blend 1 cup milk, 1.5 tbsp protein powder or almond butter, 1/2 cup grated carrot, 3/4 cup fresh mango and 5 ice cubes.

#3 Apple Pie Smoothie

Blend 1 apple, peeled and cored, ¼ cup raw oats, ½ cup thick curd, 1 tbsp almond butter, ½ cup milk, ½tsp cinnamon powder and ½ tsp vanilla extract.

#4 Vegan Banana and Honey Smoothie

Blend 2 ripe bananas, frozen, 1 tbsp almond butter, 1 cup milk, 1 tbsp raw honey, 1 large date (for added sweetness) and a dash of cinnamon.

#5 Chocolate Coffee Smoothie

Blend ¾ cup cold strong coffee, 100g silk tofu, ¼ cup thick curd, 2 tbsp dark cocoa powder, 1 tsp almond butter, ½ ripe banana and 2 tbsp whey protein powder (optional, since you have protein in the almond butter).

#6 Green smoothie

Blend ¼ cup fresh spinach, washed and chopped, ¼ cup milk, ¾ cup thick curd, 1 large banana, chopped, ½ cup peaches, chopped, 1 scoop protein powder and ice.
