Simplify your morning routine by combining your cup of joe with your breakfast meal. In this indulgent smoothie, I’ve merged my beloved coffee (cannot function without it…it’s literally liquid gold) with banana and nut butter. The result: A one-glass meal that delivers 8 g of satiating protein, 6 g of filling fiber and an out-of-this-world flavor. Blend it up and take it to go if you’re in a rush, or sit and savor if you have a few extra minutes. Either way, it will fill you up and get you charged for the day ahead.
