Additional tips for making the perfect protein smoothie:

The goal with your morning smoothie is that your hunger is satisfied and you are able to sustain energy for 4-5 hours until lunchtime. You may need to increase protein and/or fat in your smoothie. You could add Fiber Helper, almond butter, coconut oil, or an extra scoop of protein to help you stay full longer until lunch. 

We include organic coconut water in this recipes because it is a great source of potassium. However, you may certainly use milk, filtered water, or a milk alternative as your liquid base. Just be sure avoid sugar and soy milk. Good milk alternatives include: unsweetened almond, coconut, hemp, or flax milk. Fruit should be the only sweetener in your smoothie.
