“Pineapple Coconut Protein Breakfast Smoothie”

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and sometimes you just can’t seem to get your day started in the right way. If you’ve got an extra 15 minutes in the morning to spare, grab your blender and whiz up this satisfying smoothie. My Pineapple Coconut Protein Breakfast Smoothie combines sweet pineapple chunks, ripe banana, unsweetened coconut milk, plain greek yogurt, rolled oats and protein powder. This smoothie makes 2 – 8 oz. servings and is also low carb with only 19 grams per serving. Nothing like having a pina colada for breakfast. The taste is fresh and satisfying. I love this smoothie and I think you will, too. When eating healthy I still want to eat foods with flavor. In my smoothies several different protein powders are used like Tera’s Whey brand. I like trying new ones and will only recommend the ones I’ve tried and work in all my recipes. Some protein powders tend to be gritty and have an off taste, a bitterness especially when refrigerated until the next day but not Tera’s Whey. Not what I want in my recipes or for my fellow foodies. Protein helps fight off hunger and I find it gives me an energy boost first thing in the morning. I’m always in need of energy and what better way than with a Pineapple Coconut Protein Breakfast Smoothie. Oh so good…!
