This green, protein-packed breakfast smoothie will add minutes to your morning—and energy to your day (and workout).
How? Blueberries and kale provide antioxidant-rich complex carbohydrates.
Trendy but essential chia seeds provide a trifecta of power, delivering protein, omega-3s, and soluble fiber, which keeps you feeling full longer.
And a tablespoon of peanut butter, a healthy fat, makes this a balanced meal. So does the avocado, which is loaded with omegas and potassium (without the sugar found in bananas). It also gives this smoothie a super silky texture.
Get ready for clear-thinking through the morning chaos, and the possibility of making it to lunchtime without the ravenous I’ll-eat-anything urges. —Jennifer Kass
