Breakfast Protein Smoothie

Breakfast Made Easy!

If you're like most people, you don't have a lot of time to prepare a quality breakfast and eat it early in the morning before going to work. My schedule is constantly changing and I usually have to drive a good distance (40-50mins) so I wanted to be able to take full advantage of the time I have. So I started making a smoothie in the morning so I can drink it on my drive and don't have to spend the extra time in the morning preparing a meal, eating, and cleaning up.

You want to consume a lot of your carbohydrates during your first meal so this is high in simple and complex carbs so you can have the energy for your day.


Nutritional Facts

  • Carbs: 119 grams

Cooking Instructions


Ingredients:

  • 15 fl oz. Gatorade

  • 1 cup of Old Fashioned Oats

  • 2 scoops of Whey Protein

  • 1 whole banana

  • 1 ice cube

Directions:

  1. Pour some of the Gatorade in a blender to start so everything doesn't stick to the bottom.

  2. Put two scoops of Whey Protein, 1 cup of Old Fashioned Oats, 1 ice cube, half of the banana (eat the other half), and pour the rest of the Gatorade on top.

  3. Blend thoroughly so it becomes a liquid and pour into the container you want to drink it from.

  4. Enjoy!

NOTES:

  • You can customize it to your taste preferences by choosing the flavor of Gatorade you like most.

  • I prefer a banana because of it being high in Potassium and it's also dense in calories.

  • Another good alternative would be an apple because of its natural sugars to help wake you up in the morning.

Sounds good @jeffkline!  Definitely works for you!  I do the same but haven't tried Gatorade yet.  I like to add frozen cranberries, frozen blueberries, 1-tsp coconut oil and a half-serving of almonds.   

Scott_Herman

yeah adding gatorade sounds very interesting!!!

JeffKline

Honestly the only reason I tried it for the first time is because I ran out of juice haha but I figured the added electrolytes, sugars, and calories couldn't hurt before my workout right after I drink my smoothie

Scott_Herman

haha sounds like things happen for a reason @jeffkline!

JoeHurricane

Sounds good @jeffkline!

High in carbs, but that might be good for some people looking to load up with energy in the morning!
