I’m in yet another round of Whole 30 to  prep for all of my upcoming summer travel and one things remains the same: I’m always down for a smoothie with a powerful punch. I recently picked up a few new varieties of SilkĀ®s Protein and Vanilla Protein Nutmilks from Walmart and I am SO excited to whip up a ton of yummy + protein packed recipes. I make this smoothie almost every day to pair with breakfast and it’s just so good. 

With the goodness of almonds and creaminess of cashews, both the  Silk 2g Sugar Protein & Nutmilk Almond Cashewmilk & Pea Protein and Silk Vanilla Protein & Nutmilk Almond Cashewmilk & Pea Protein are delicious over cereal, in smoothies (duhhh), as part of a favorite recipe or served straight up in a glass. I’m not really a big milk drinker but add a little cinnamon and cocoa powder to one of these and you will thank me later. I love that they pack 10 grams of protein per serving from 100% peas and there is absolutely no saturated fat! Annnnnd, this stuff is free of dairy, soy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg and MSG. So, yeah it’s good all around. 

Keep scrolling for one of my go-to recipes to jumpstart the day! The blend of coffee, banana and nutmeg really wake up your system and serve as the perfect pairing for delicious + good-for-you meal!
