Tropical Protein Smoothie

*Disclaimer – This is a sponsored post for #PowerInProtein and #CollectiveBias, all opinions are %100 mine.

Does anyone else find it so hard to stay full until lunch? I mean really?! I do love to eat, but getting hungry 2 hours after breakfast…well…”Ain’t nobody got time for that!” I usually make whole wheat waffles or pancakes for breakfast, and I feel good about them because I know what’s in them. Whole grains, flax-seed, no sugar, and a dab of maple syrup. But an hour and a half later…watch out…I’m getting hangry! So I have been trying to add more protein to my breakfasts, which usually ends up just being eggs. I love eggs, but after a while I need a change.

So I started to search for the perfect protein drink. I didn’t want anything too “chalky”, or anything with too much sugar. But it still had to taste great, have quality ingredients and most importantly…keep me full!

Tropical Protein smoothie...a great way to start the day!

Thankfully, when I was at Wal-Mart, I came across a familiar brand. EAS. I remember drinking their carb control ready-to-drink in college. But this time I picked up the EAS Complete Protein which is a great source of protein and good for you nutrients! It’s also supplemented with calcium, fiber, vitamins, and minerals and benefits the digestive system too!

Pick up some EAS Complete Protein at Walmart

I have to say…I love this stuff! I add it to 8oz of cold milk or even just water, in the morning or for a snack! SO far I am stuck on the vanilla, but I can’t wait to try the chocolate…because…well…CHOCOLATE!!

I know this is a small thing, but one of my favorite parts is that EAS Complete Protien has a sealed top and scoop located in lid so you don’t have to put your hand in the powder – SUPER cool innovation! Seriously..it’s the small things!

Scoop in the lid!! LOVE EAS!

After drinking EAS Complete Protein in the mornings and noticing I was staying fuller longer, I thought…”Hey! I can add this stuff to green smoothies!” And so…Tropical Protein Smoothies were born!

Pineapple, banana, orange juice, spinach and EAS complete Protein!

Here’s what you need
2 cups of cubed pineapples
2 bananas
2 cups of spinach
2 cups of orange juice
2 scoops of EAS Complete Protein – vanilla
Ice – Optional

What you do
Add all the ingredients into a blender. Blend. Enjoy! Keep in mind that the protein powder is designed for adults and shouldn’t be given to adolescence. So…I blend all the ingredients (EXPECT THE POWDER) and pour some glasses for the kiddos…then…I add the powder, blend and enjoy my tropical protein smoothie!

Pick up some bananas, pineapple, spinach, orange juice and EAS complete protein for Tropical Protein smoothies!

Not only is EAS Complete Protein a great way to stay fuller longer, but it can help you manage your weight and increase your energy. And when combined with an active lifestyle, EAS Complete Protein can help you reach your fitness and nutrition goals. I only wish I drank some the morning of my first triatholon.

Start your day off great with a tropical protein smoothie!! Or drink one as an afternoon snack!

Tropical Protein Smoothies!
