Trying to eat healthier? Need a quick breakfast? Want to switch up your usual post-workout snack? We can do all of those with these delicious and healthy smoothie recipes!
This week I’m sharing a different smoothie recipe each day. All of them are made with yogurt to help keep you full (it’s packed with protein) and fruit to sweeten the deal! Plus a few other healthy ingredients for a different delicious smoothie from Monday through Friday!
One 8 oz serving of vanilla yogurt has about 10g of protein. And adding whole grains (from the quick cook oats), fruit that’s packed with fiber and sweetens the smoothie plus healthy fats (from the nuts and chia seeds) – all contribute to a healthy and filling grab-and-go breakfast. I’ve found that when I have a good amount of protein and fat at breakfast or after a workout – I stay full longer than when I have a light snack or something that’s not balanced this way.
