It is no secret that I love smoothies. I especially love smoothies for an on-the-go breakfast. I can make them at home and then take them along wherever the breeze takes me. What I don’t like about smoothies? The amount of ingredients they take.
You are probably saying, “Fruit. Milk. Ice. That isn’t that many.” And you are right, that isn’t! But to make my smoothies into super breakfasts, I load them full of powders, seeds, and other nutrition boosters. By the time I get out, measure and put away all of my additions, a smoothie can take upwards of 20 minutes to perfect. Ridiculous! And so not the speedy breakfast option I want it to be.
So, a few years back, I came up with the idea of these smoothie booster packs—and they’ve saved me so much time over the years! These smoothie booster packs have all kinds of goodness in them, and they are just waiting in the freezer to be popped into whatever smoothie I’m making that day.
These smoothie booster packs are totally customizable to what you like in your smoothies and what nutritional goals you have. Looking for a boost of protein? Add protein powder. Want to get your dark, leafy greens in a drinkable version? Throw in some spinach. Looking to quell seasonal allergies? Toss in some local bee pollen. It’s up to you to craft your perfect booster packs!
I have a basic recipe for my “normal” booster packs below, but here are some options (plus I’m sure there are a whole bunch I’m forgetting) that you can add in—I’ve added affiliate links for each of my favorite brands where applicable:
