Ancient Grains Protein Smoothie Bowl

Ancient Grains Protein Smoothie Bowl Start your morning with over 30 grams of protein with this quick, thick smoothie. Spoon required. Makes 1-2 servings Ingredients: 1 cup Voskos (or Fage/Chobani) plain greek yogurt (0%); I tend to use voskos or fage since these have the highest protein content, but Chobani is the smoothest of the three 1/2 cup frozen blueberries 1 ripe banana 1 tbsp flax meal 1 tbsp almond butter 1 tsp chia seeds Splash of almond milk Your favorite granola to top! Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Add almond milk as needed if it gets too thick to blend depending on your blender. You can experiment by adding other superfoods like quinoa, maca, hempseed, buckwheat; just be creative with your combinations. You can even add your favorite protein powder for added protein. I can recommend Progenex More Muscle and Recovery proteins–probably the best tasting whey protein I have ever tried.
