If you think Antoni Porowski wakes up to a standard, run-of-the-mill smoothie every day, you’re not-so-sadly mistaken. Queer Eye‘s resident food and kitchen expert—and famous avo-lover (hello, relatable)—has a go-to recipe that’s anything but ordinary. If you didn’t see him telling us about it on our new Instagram for food obsessives (@wellandgoodeats), here’s what you need to know.
First, there are no frozen fruit chunks in sight. Instead, Porowski starts with a nut milk base and creates a “Mediterranean-y” mix from there. “Take some super-chilled Silk almond milk—I prefer the plain one, but vanilla is really good as well—and throw in some ice.”
“[Use] Medjool dates, because they’re sweeter and a little stickier—just remove the pits—lime zest, lime juice, a little dash of cinnamon, and any type of protein you want.” —Antoni Porowski
Then, comes a mix of sweet and sour that somehow works together to rock your taste buds in the best way: “[Use] Medjool dates, because they’re sweeter and a little stickier—just remove the pits—lime zest, lime juice, a little dash of cinnamon, and any type of protein you want.” When it comes to Porowski’s protein powder of choice, he says he’s a fan of the plant-based pea variety because it has a “little bit of starchiness to it.”
In the end, you’re left with a slightly tangy mix that will certainly wake you up as you’re sipping away on your commute. Now if only he could revamp all your a.m. favorites, right? (Psst—if you’re reading this, Antoni, my go-to tofu scramble could really use a Porowski twist.)
