Vegan Strawberry Banana Protein
Breakfast Smoothie To Try This Summer

I’ve been making breakfast smoothies for so many years; the only thing that’s changed is that I’m no longer using whey protein. I have nothing against whey and I know a lot of people love it for the extra protein in their diet, but most of the time it just didn’t sit well with my stomach and I get the worst tummy rumbles from it.
Having been a personal trainer for over 7 years, I for one know there are so many views out there on how much protein women need in their diet. We definitely need protein but I believe it’s sometimes eaten in excess. The 9 g of protein this breakfast smoothie adds to my diet is plenty for me because I get protein from other sources like beans for example. Since I’ve been trying to cut back on my dairy intake I decided to use organic tofu. What’s great about tofu is that it not only adds protein but also structure and creaminess to the smoothie. It’s so easy to whip up and a great breakfast if you’re feeling rushed in the morning!
- 1 banana
- 7 or 8 frozen strawberries
- 1/3 cup almond milk
- 85 g tofu (I used organic extra firm)
- 4 ice cubes
- Place all your ingredients in blender and blend until smooth!
