The kids and I have been drinking protein smoothies at least once a week for an easy fun way to get protein for breakfast. The kids eat so much oatmeal, all have varying opinions on eggs, and get bored easily so adding my favorite Garden of Life Raw greens and protein makes adding protein to breakfast easy.
I use frozen fruit for convenience but the protein powder takes away some of the bright flavors (and colors) of strawberry and mango so feel free to swap frozen strawberries and mangos out for fresh fruit.
I also use coconut milk in place of cow’s milk so feel free to swap in your dairy of choice. I’m thinking almond milk would be a delicious option. If you use fresh fruit instead of frozen, you can cut the liquid down by 1 cup.
And aren’t the little pinwheel straws I bought at Target last summer just the cutest?! It makes smoothie time even more fun.
Strawberry Mango Protein Smoothies
Yield 4 12 ounce servings

- 2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
- 1 cup fresh or frozen mango
- 2 scoops protein powder
- Add milk to blender.
- Add protein powder and blend.

- Add more milk to reach desired consistency if thicker than you like. We like ours nice and thick.
- If super thick, be careful when pouring as it tends to plop out of the blender pitcher.
