5 Healthy Protein Smoothies

Try out one of these tasty smoothies when you’re feeling hungry!

It’s important to keep your body fueled throughout the day. And what you put in your body is doubly important. You know by now that fried, greasy or overly processed foods are a big NO NO while you’re on this awesome health journey of yours. And since I’m here to help in any way that I can, I’m sharing some of my favorite protein smoothie recipes to help you during those weird in-between hours when it’s not time for the next meal and your last feels like a distant memory. (Hunger Danger Zone!) I have a Nutri Ninja that I love but you can use any plain ol’ blender.

Go check out my post about healthy snacking and preparing for snacking so that you’re always putting into your body things that will only benefit it.

**NOTE: When bananas in my house start to get overripe, I peel them, bag them and stick them in the freezer. They add awesome flavor to your smoothies, are perfect for baking and you’re not throwing them out. I hate wasting food. That said, if all you have are bananas of the regular, not-frozen variety, those work just as well!
