Here are a few smoothie ideas. If you don’t want to use bananas, use 1/4 of an avocado to get a creamy texture.

 

Here are the protein powders I recommend:

 

Banana Blueberry

  • 8 ounces coconut water (My favorites are Harmless Harvest and Nirvana)
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 TB freshly ground flaxseed
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon

  • 1 serving protein powder
