Okay, smoothies might be filling, but a lot of times they don’t have staying power. Fruit and spinach are fabulous, but not exactly satiating. And what’s the point of taking the time to make a smoothie in the morning if you’re just going to be hungry again in an hour or two?
Because smoothies are heavy on the carbs, adding protein and/or healthy fats helps them be more balanced. And a balanced breakfast is a filling breakfast! These are some of my favorite add-ins for satisfying smoothies.
- Crazy Richard’s Pure PB // Peanut butter powder was one of my go-tos when I was pregnant and couldn’t stomach very many foods. It’s perfect in a banana, almond milk, and cocoa powder smoothie!
