This Green Protein Breakfast Smoothie is the perfect morning pick-me-up to get the day started off right. The mix of natural sugars, vitamins, and minerals really help to perk you up while the healthy fats and protein keep you feeling satiated.

I’ve found that adding some cinnamon helps to bring out the protein shake’s subtle, but oh-so-tasty flavor.

Cinnamon, is there anything you’re NOT fabulous on? You just win me over every time.

Making a protein shake couldn’t be easier and is one of my favorite ways to enjoy a filling, healthy, and fast breakfast. Just toss everything into the blender and blend until smooth.

This one comes from Rob at MinimalFit and PT Pod. I absolutely love having this green smoothie first thing in the morning, it makes me feel awake and energized for the day without the crash a couple of hours later.

Give it a try and see how you feel!
