This smoothie is so wonderful and filling. Normally I would add oatmeal to this to thicken it up, which you can, but it really is not needed in this drink. I did use fresh blueberries and a small orange (size of a tangerine) in this. For the size that I made, this could be enjoyed by one or two and by adding flax, wheat germ and protein powder it makes for a great morning breakfast.

How to Make Blueberry Orange Breakfast Protein Smoothie

Step-by-Step

  • 1Drop chunks of banana, blueberries, orange and yogurt into the blender and pulse a few times to break up. Add protein powder, milk, flax, wheat germ, vanilla extract and splenda and pulse again. If you choose, you can add ice a little at a time.
