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. This morning I turned on the new Netflix original series, Bloodline. Starring Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) and set in the Florida keys, the series follows a family caught between the ugly truth and the terrible lie that covers it up. The Florida Keys inspired me to create this Tropical Protein Smoothie Recipe and share it with you today. Each episode is about an hour long so it’s the perfect break to recharge.
