I’m sure you guys had really good tasting and macro-friendly breakfast smoothie recipe that I just started making this past week and that I’m really liking.
It’s an apple-cinnamon type of flavor, it almost like apple pie, really easy to make and I’ve just been waking up every morning really craving this thing, so I wanted to share it here so that you can try it out for yourself.
So, what you’re going to need is 200 milliliters of unsweetened almond milk which just a little bit less than a cup, you can use regular milk if you want; that’s really up to you.
One scoop of vanilla whey protein powder, I’m using Optimum Nutrition right now.
25 grams of oats and that’s equal to about a quarter cup.
125 grams of apple and that going to be equal to just, like, a typical regular sized apple, like this, 25 grams of pitted dates, and then one teaspoon of cinnamon; and then one other optional addition here would be some natural peanut butter, if you’re okay bumping the calories up a little bit higher for some added flavor, about a tablespoon or so would work well.
I’m doing a mini cut right now, so I’m trying to keep my calories a little bit lower and I also prefer to have more my calories later in the day so I’m not going to use the peanut butter in this shake but it definitely would be a good addition taste wise and to add some more fat if you want because this a fairly low fat shake as is.
So I’m just going to go ahead and tossed everything in now.
Make sure to add some ice as well.
I add five ice cubes to this.
So, putting the almond milk, the oats, one scoop of vanilla whey, cinnamon, tossed in the dates and the apple.
And there’s the finished shake there.
The nutritional break down is 410 calories, 30 grams of protein, 59 carbs and 6 grams of fat.
And again if you want more calories and fat then you can go ahead and add in some natural peanut butter, or you can just increase the overall volume of the ingredients.
So, go ahead and give that breakfast smoothie recipe a try.
