I’m a sleeper. I mean I really like sleep. I typically go to bed at 10pm and will still press the snooze button at least once when it goes off at 7am. Since I don’t typically have enough time in the morning to make a full on breakfast, I whip up this easy, delicious morning protein smoothie for the road.

After I’m dressed and ready to go, I will blend this smoothie up in my VitaMix, put it in a 20 ounce water bottle and will take it to work with me. At work, I start the day with a glass of hot water and lemon around 8:30am and will grab my smoothie once I start feeling hungry, around 9:30am. Everything in this smoothie is working to keep you full. The fiber from the banana and spinach makes this a filling breakfast and by adding plant-based protein powder, almond butterhemp, flax and chia seeds you feel full all the way until lunch. I promise!
