Breakfast Coffee Protein Smoothie

It’s breakfast on-the-go with everything you need – coffee, oats, banana, milk and protein powder. Ain’t nobody got time to sit down for a full breakfast everyday! When I know I have a busy morning, I love to put all the ingredients of this Breakfast Coffee Protein Smoothie smoothie in a blender at night, store it in the fridge, and then give it a whirl in the morning! The cacao and honey give it a wonderful sweet flavor and you’ll love sipping on this on your drive to work or school in bliss.

So, why do you need protein in the morning? Protein is touted to actually help your body wake up properly in the morning with the right amount of energy your body needs. In fact, if you combine protein with carbs, it actually helps you slow down digestion of your breakfast, meaning you’ll have energy to carry you through your morning without being starved before its lunch time. This is why many studies show that eating more protein can actually help you eat less calories in your day. Exactly how much protein your body needs is completely dependent though on your own body, lifestyle and eating habits. But don’t skip the protein in the morning, even when you’re on-the-go and late for whatever!
