Ok, smoothie lovers. It’s time to take your morning shake to the next level by adding a little protein punch, a.k.a. our favorite protein powder.

Now, there are a lot of protein options out there, and they’re not all created equal. We’re big fans of the plant-based (non-whey) kind. Specifically, Parsley Health’s Rebuild Protein Shake .

One serving not only contains a whopping 26 grams of protein, but it’s loaded with essential nutrients to support gut healing and more.

Crafting the perfect smoothie around this all-star ingredient is an art. There is a fine balance between doctoring up your smoothie to the point of deliciousness and adding too many extras, making it too sweet or overly caloric.
