10 Breakfast Smoothies that Include Protein

There is nothing like a breakfast smoothie with protein to fill you up and start your day off right! Check out these great recipes!

Although it’s known as the most important meal of the day, for many of us breakfast is not our favorite meal to prepare. For most moms, mornings are a busy time with plenty to do and not much time to do it in. But you want your family to start their day off right with a healthy and filling breakfast to get them through the first part of the day. For a quick and convenient breakfast, a smoothie is a great option. But liquefied fruit all by itself may not be filling enough to sustain a busy kid or adult. Fortunately, there are many wonderful smoothie recipes that include protein. Protein in your smoothie will add the substance you need for a truly healthy breakfast. Check these out!
