Lately, I have been trying to incorporate more protein and healthy fat in my diet, especially at breakfast. Not only do I find that it provides me with a much-needed energy boost, but it also keeps me full much longer than a low fat or low protein meal. Although one of the easiest ways to do this is with eggs, lately I have been reaching for smoothies instead. I add hemp protein powder to my smoothies for added protein. Personally, I like hemp protein because it is low calorie, plant-based, and is really in high fiber compared to other protein powders. With that said, any protein powder would work or you could leave it out completely. The almond butter adds healthy fats (any nut butter would work) and the blueberries pack in antioxidants and is lower in carbohydrates compared to other fruits. All in all, it’s a great smoothie for breakfast or post workout.
