I also drink a protein smoothie for breakfast everyday during the week because it is easy to make. Right now I am putting strawberries into a vanilla smoothie, i only use water now cuz it is always around. I have used almond milk unsweetened. I also make a chocolate one and i used to put peanutbutter, then i was adding coconut extract at one time, I have gotten used to just the protein powder with water and ice. It just depends on my mood and how much time I have in the morning to put everything together.

Good Luck

It never gets easier, you just get better.

Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going!

I'm with you, I LOVE my morning shake. There are so many things to add to it. Just watch for added sugars in things and too many calories.

Add instant coffee and vanilla extract... Yum!
Buy a selection of different extracts- they are only 1-2 dollars each, and a couple drops goes a long way. I have hazelnut, almond, and marshmallow which are all delicious. I also have butter flavored extract, but I don't think that would be good in a protein shake.

Have you ever tried green smoothies?

nut butters, berries, bananas, any kind of fruit for that matter, cinnamon, raw honey, bee pollen, celery, parsely, cucumber, vanilla bean, coffee beans, etc.

I never get bored with my smoothies because I always try something different. The world is your oyster. Experiment. If it doesn't work out, don't do that combo again.

Try mixing in some berries, fresh or frozen will do. I've also been hearing some good things about powdered peanut butter as a mix-in for protein shakes.

For breakfasts most mornings, I have a protein shake because it's easy to make and I can drink it on my way to work in my portable cup. However, I get bored very easily. How can I add some variety to my protein shake? Thanks!

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!
