Suzanne's protein smoothie recipe

All too often, my clients tell me that they just can't stomach breakfast, that they're too rushed to eat breakfast or that they don't like typical breakfast foods.

Thank goodness for the invention of the blender and, subsequently, the smoothie. In the summer, it's my go to running out the door breakfast and a solution for busy moms and non-breakfast people.

Breakfast is so important because:
1) People who don't eat breakfast are likely to be overweight.
2) Breakfast is often a cure to night time over eating because you top load your day with calories instead of feeling like you didn't get enough calories during the day
3) It kick starts your metabolism first thing in the morning

I could easily rattle off 30 more reasons to eat breakfast but instead I will share Suzanne's protein smoothie recipe for you. She's a breakfast convert like you will be very soon.

And guess what, peaches are freakin' awesome right now.

1 cup of 1 percent or skim milk
1 scoop of flavourless protein powder
1tbsp almond butter
2 ice cubes
Half a fresh, ripe peach
Half a cup of strawberries

Blend. Poor. Drink. Yum!

If you want to lose body fat and be healthier, there is no way around it. You need to have a balanced breakfast. End of story.

Share your favourite protein smoothie recipe below!

Be good,
