Scroll to the bottom for my fav. smoothie recipe and a link to Lil Bucks.
In the last year, I have been on a total smoothie kick for breakfast or lunch!
I always try to include protein, fiber, fat, and some greens in my smoothies. (Thanks Kelly Leveque!)
Recently, I came across a new small-business in Chicago, Lil Bucks! These are mini sprouted buckwheat pieces that are perfect toppers for smoothie bowls, or used in place of granola on yogurt! ‘Lil Bucks are super high fiber and protein… and are gluten free!
I was lucky enough to receive all three flavors… and it is SO hard to pick a favorite! For my chocolate protein smoothies I have been loving the Cacao flavor. The Matcha is great on top of some greek yogurt!
Here is a recipe for my favorite morning smoothie/smoothie bowl to keep me full all the way until lunch!
- Half of one frozen banana
- Almond milk- I normally eyeball the measurements for this, add more for a smoothie, less for a smoothie bowl
- Handful of spinach
- 2 scoops of chocolate peanut butter protein powder
- 1 tbs chia seeds
- 1 tbs almond butter
Blend all ingredients, and top with some ‘Lil Bucks and fruit to add some crunch.
