We live for breakfast protein smoothies here at Parsley Health. They’re quick to prepare, easy to digest, help you stay you energized all day long and kick that mid-morning sugar craving.

At Parsley Health, our doctors recommend people eat protein and fat with every meal to keep cravings at bay, and we have a few tricks up our sleeve for effortlessly sneaking in enough protein throughout the day. For example: in the morning when you’re strapped for time and not awake enough to chew yet, drink your protein for breakfast !

Our Classic Morning Smoothie from our 5 Day Reset recipe booklet is one of our all-time favorites.

One serving not only contains a whopping 26 grams of protein, it’s also loaded with essential nutrients to support gut healing and general well-being.

This smoothie will surely become a staple of your morning routine in no time.
