Recipe: Protein Powder Berry Breakfast Smoothie

Full of energy and protein for a great start to your day!

There’s nothing more refreshing than waking up in the morning to an ice cold smoothie. We’ve kicked things up a bit with this one and experimented with adding protein powder! You can add whichever flavoured protein powder you like, but for this one, we went with vanilla.

Protein powder doesn’t taste the same as adding vanilla essence, so beware, the taste can take some time to getting used to. However, if you’re wanting to build more muscle or find new ways to add protein into your diet, this is a great simple way to start.


  • 3/4 cup of frozen/fresh berries
  • 1/2 cup of organic vanilla yoghurt
  • 1 chopped banana
  • 1/2 cup of cold fruit juice
  • 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder


Place all the ingredients into a food processor or mix together using a hand blender until thick and smooth.

Top with fresh or frozen berries.

The healthy bit

One scoop of whey protein powder provides 22 grams of protein, a vital building block for bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

Although fruit juice is very high in sugar, having a small amount with your breakfast provides you with a great source of natural sugar and energy and, helps to flush out toxins.

Berries are a great source of antioxidants and a large handful counts as one of your 5 a Day.
