Protein makes you feel full longer and since I generally get the urge to snack mid-morning, a protein smoothie is a great way to snack healthy that will fill you up until lunchtime. This tropical protein smoothie recipe is easy to make and gives you a Vitamin C boost from the pineapple as well.
Tropical Protein Smoothie Recipe
Smoothies are fun to make because you can really be very flexible with them. I adjust the fruit I add to my smoothies depending on what I have in the refrigerator that needs to be used up. Today I had bananas and pineapple so that’s the base of this tropical protein smoothie recipe. This is perfect for college students looking for a healthy college breakfast.
The protein comes from Greek yogurt. Please don’t substitute regular yogurt because it doesn’t have the same levels of protein and won’t do nearly as good a job as if you used Greek yogurt. I added organic plain Greek yogurt. You could add flavored Greek yogurt but don’t get the kind with artificial ingredients. You want to start the morning off with a healthy smoothie.
Taking a break mid-morning to take care of myself and recharge is a great way to ensure I make it through the day. I try to take an hour or so to recharge a few times a day to make sure I don’t burn out.
