Want more energy? Try this choc protein smoothie

Protein Smoothie

If you want more energy, then you need to start your day with a healthy supply of protein. Protein will help you to control your appetite (i.e.: lose weight), support your metabolism and assist your body with blood sugar regulation.

Protein is a building block of cells throughout the body. It is necessary for healthy skin, nails, muscles, cartilage and blood. Protein helps to build and repair bodily tissues, and it is used to produce hormones and enzymes. When you eat protein for breakfast, you will feel more energized and ready to take on your day.

Breakfast does not need to be time consuming or elaborate to make. Keep it simple and use nutrient rich foods, like a good quality protein powder, some fruit and veg and you can whip up this lush smoothie in no time.

Not all protein powders are created equal

What I look for in a protein powder is an organic plant-based protein powder that is ethically sourced. When looking to confirm your product is actually organic, it must be listed as being organic under the EU law, not just labeled as natural. The reference to ‘natural’ does not mean that it has been produced using a chemical-free process.

The only organic, plant-based, protein fusion that I have found so far is from That Protein. I tried their blissful brown rice and raw cacao protein powder and it is divine. That Protein’s products are a premium range and the flavours come entirely from cold pressed ingredients that are free from chemical processing.

This protein power smoothie tastes amazing and it will keep you feeling full and energised.
