Having a high-protein breakfast is very important for hypoglycemia, but I don’t like to eat solid food before 10 or 11 am. My days generally start much earlier than that, so a smoothie is a perfect first meal! Bonus – this is a really easy way to make sure I have green vegetables in my breakfast!
This recipe makes a very thick smoothie, which is how I like it, but if you prefer a thinner smoothie sub in fresh spinach or kale in place of the frozen spinach and/or increase the amount of your almond milk. You can also add a little water into the mix to thin things out if you are staying conscious of the calorie load. If I’m feeling bold and want a more savory smoothie I sub in pre-steamed, frozen butternut squash for the fruit and add a little cardamom!
