6 Protein-Packed Fall Smoothie Ideas

Breakfast can be a hassle. You have to cook, eat at the table, and then clean it all up. That takes up a generous amount of time in the mornings. Make a healthy, yet portable breakfast with protein smoothies. To make fall even more exciting, use some seasonal flavors to get inspired.

  1. Green Apple Spinach Smoothie: This green smoothie will revitalize you and make you feel amazing. Flush out toxins and plump up the skin by boosting your immune system. The crisp, clean taste will zip your taste buds with delight. To make this smoothie, chop up half of a Granny Smith apple, add in two large handfuls of spinach, squeeze a lime, and use coconut milk and spices to create this green protein shake. You can add some Stevia or agave to the mix to your desired sweetness, or leave it tart.
  2. Protein Pumpkin Shake: When you think of Fall, immediately you think of pumpkin everything. Why wouldn’t you have a pumpkin flavored smoothie? Don’t limit yourself to the Fall season, either.

If you want to add a little extra crunch, top it off with some granola.

After squeezing some fresh blood oranges, add some frozen raspberries, coconut water, a banana, and cinnamon for flavor. It’s a cool, sweet smoothie that is easy to suck down in one sitting. This shake is also gluten free, dairy free, and vegan friendly. If you want an extra zing, you can shave a few pieces of ginger in the mix. A little bit of ginger root goes a long way.
  4. Maple Cinnamon Sweet Potato Smoothie: This one doesn’t require any protein powders because all of the energy comes from the sweet potato.
