With summer just around the corner, smoothies are a great light and refreshing breakfast to have on a warmer day. Smoothie bowls are a delicious and satisfying meal that can be eaten for breakfast, as a snack and dessert. We liked to add frozen fruit and shredded coconut to ours to thicken up the smoothie.

We have added 1 serve of Red Seal’s Shaping Protein Powder to give the smoothie an extra protein boost. It is important to have a breakfast high in protein in the morning to keep you full for longer and regulate your blood sugar levels.

Getting enough protein in your diet is essential in promoting your overall health. It helps to repair and maintain your muscles and is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. Protein slows down digestion and the release of sugar in the blood which prevents high blood sugar spikes. When blood sugar levels are balanced, you are going to have more control over your hunger, and feel full and satisfied for longer.

This protein is available in natural vanilla and chocolate, it contains 60% protein and proudly carries a five-star health rating.  Like all Red Seal products, the Fit Protein range contains no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives which is hard to come by with protein powders. It’s perfect for after the gym, or to add to recipes like this one. We also made Strawberry and Banana Protein Bread which uses the vanilla flavoured Red Seal Fit Protein.
