Breakfast Smoothie

After working out each morning, my main go-to breakfast is a high protein smoothie.  It is super simple and gives me the energy I need to make it to lunch.

A's Insanity Vegan Smoothie
2 heaping Tablespoons Rice Protein
1 teaspoon Spirulina
1 clementine/orange
1 cup blueberries
1 cup water
1 Tablespoon agave nectar or honey

Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth, then enjoy.  This filling smoothie that has an average of 266 calories which gives me boost I need after my intense workout each morning.

I know someday I would love to try the Vega protein powder mix, but it is a little to expensive for our budget at the moment, so I stick with a cheaper brand that gives me the same benefit.  So, there you have it, my morning breakfast recipe.  Try it and let me know what you think!


  1. I've been wanting to add protein into my morning smoothies but haven't been able to decide whether I want to try hemp or rice protein powder. How do you like the rice protein powder?

  2. Hi Michelle,
    I currently use Nutribiotic Vegan Vanilla Rice Protein. From the reviews I found on Amazon.com, it seemed to be the best cheap option. Plus, they had it at our local Whole Foods for about $30 for the big 3 lbs. I haven't tried any hemp powder yet, but hope to soon. If you try it, you will have to let me know how it is.
