AM Smoothies

When you’re looking for a light option that you can sip while you get ready or drive to the office, smoothies have you covered. Start with low-fat milk (use Fairlife ultra filtered milk for a lactose-free protein boost); add protein powder, yogurt, Greek yogurt, or pasteurized eggs to enhance the protein. Flavor it with peanut butter (or peanut butter powder) and bananas, peanut butter and chocolate, fresh or frozen fruit, powdered sugar-free Jell-O, unsweetened coconut, a squirt of fruit juice, fresh or frozen greens. You can add in powdered calcium, probiotics, matcha (green tea powder to boost metabolism), chia seeds, or ground flax seeds.

Watch the calories in the additives so you get a great nutrient-dense drink rather than a calorie bomb.
