{breakfast loves} Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie

Breakfast is my FAVORITE meal of the day (If you don’t believe me check out my other blog). When I started the Paleo Diet I was afraid that I would have to eat eggs & bacon everyday since all my favorites… cereal, oatmeal, yogurt with berries, cottage cheese, pancakes, french toast, etc.. were definitely not paleo! But I was wrong.  Instead I’ve been discovering new ways to prepare amazing breakfasts.

So, I thought I’d start a series of recipes called {breakfast loves} to inspire people who are on the Paleo Diet, but LOVE breakfast! Since I failed last week on my attempt at making pumpkin pancakes (they tasted great, but fell apart), I thought I’d start my breakfast series with something simple and quick.

During the weekdays I don’t have time to make a large breakfast, so this is a great protein and vitamin rich recipe to help jump start your morning! I use Sun Warrior Warrior Blend Raw Plant-Based Complete Protein Powder (Vanilla) because it’s paleo approved and tastes good!  Also, if you have a Bella Cucina Rocket Blender, it makes making these SO quick and easy (not to mention the cup becomes your drinking glass & to-go cup!).

Recipe type: Breakfast, Drink
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • ½ cup non-frozen bananas chopped (~ ½ a banana)
  • ½ cup frozen organic strawberries (~ 4-5 large strawberries)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 scoop Sun Warrior plant-based protein powder (vanilla)
Instructions
  1. Put in the bananas
  2. Then pile on the strawberries
  3. Pour in the almond milk (if there is a fill line do not exceed)
  4. Dump in the protein powder
  5. Shake the cup (so the protein powder & milk can mix)
  6. Blend (liquify)
  7. Enjoy!
Notes
Always put the most frozen items closest to the blade, so if you are using a Bella or Magic Bullet, put the frozen strawberries on the top. If using a blender then put in first. The protein powder tends to stick to the sides so put it in after the almond milk and shake the cup before blending.
