Natural Protein Shake Recipe (Smoothie)


This drink is made with mango purée, orange juice and a banana. The banana gives a smooth texture to the drink; cooked mung beans add protein and tie the flavors together.

I’ve read that eating breakfast is one of the keys to successfully losing weight. Since I’ve been waking up at the wee hours of the morning to work out for 45 minutes before starting the day, I want to stack the deck in my favor. A protein shake is the perfect choice for me because I’m not very big on breakfast (unless it’s crêpes!).
