[recipe] breakfast smoothie

Some mornings I don’t want cereal or eggs just yet. Here’s a recipe for a really tasty, easy, easy-on-the-stomach high-protein smoothie.

It’s definitely a breakfast smoothie rather than a workout recovery shake — over 500 calories means it’s a meal of its own — but the calories are all from good things, and it keeps you full for a bajillion hours.

  • 1 cup milk (I used 1%)
  • 1 container Toasted Coconut Vanilla Greek yogurt (Oikos) (the full fat kind, baby!)
  • 1 banana, preferably frozen
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I use Gold Standard Whey in Vanilla)
  • 1 tbsp creamy peanut butter

Facts:

  • 585 calories
  • 66 g carbs
  • 17 g fat
  • 47 g protein

Those of you who are super focused on protein (and low carbs) may want to omit the banana or move to a lower-cal yogurt, but in MY humble opinion a) fruit is good for you always and b) low cal stuff is a bit of a crock, so, hey.

Enjoy!
