The Healthiest Protein Smoothie Recipe To Absolutely Fuel Your Morning


blueberry kale protein smoothie


Today, I'm sharing a brand new smoothie recipe that you can use throughout the 5 Day Smoothie Challenge ~ introducing the Blueberry Kale Protein Smoothie.


This smoothie recipe was designed to work as a break-fast or lunch.


It's loaded with quality sources of protein, fat and fiber to help boost satiety and prevent hunger and sugar cravings.


The ingredients were also specifically picked to pack an insane amount of micronutrients to fuel your metabolism, brain, heart, bones and muscles.

This Smoothie is packed with:


Over 30 grams complete protein!

This smoothie technically has 40 grams of protein because of the additional plant-based sources of protein from hemp seeds. However, it's packed with 30 grams of complete protein, which is needed to maximize body recomposition perks. The complete protein comes from a combination of skyr (or greek) yogurt and my DELISH zero sugar, pasture-raised protein powder.

Both Vitamin K1 and K2

Vitamin K1 comes from plants (in this case, kale) and is important for blood clotting. Vitamin K2 (in this case, from yogurt) is crucial for getting calcium out of the arteries and into the bones, which helps prevent calcification of the arteries while simultaneously strengthening the bones.


400mg calcium

That's about 40% of your daily needs in just one smoothie! Most of the bioavailable calcium in this recipe is from the yogurt.


1051mg potassium

This is an important electrolyte required for proper heart and nerve function. This smoothie provides 30% of daily needs!


200mg magnesium

Magnesium helps to improve sleep quality and act as a natural muscle relaxant. This is about 50% of daily needs.


21% daily zinc needs

Zinc is important for the immune system as well as for fertility. You can find zinc mostly in the yogurt in this recipe.


Other micronutrients

From the other ingredients in this smoothie (like the blueberries, hemp seeds and lemon) combined with the yogurt and kale, you can find 94% of daily vitamin C, 111% daily manganese, 5g fiber, plant-based sources of omega-3 fats, choline and various B vitamins.


Additional perks to love

I also love the addition of ginger and lemon to this smoothie for gut health and blood sugar stabilizing perks.


And of course, you can't forget the blueberries! Blueberries are incredibly dense in antioxidants. Studies have found that eating blueberries directly increases the body's antioxidant levels.(1)


Cheers to the Smoothie Challenge! Enjoy today's new recipe!
