Adults who lack sufficient amounts of protein in their diets tend to feel more lethargic and sluggish throughout the day. Protein helps to maintain blood sugar levels and reduce spikes and crashes in energy. Smoothies are one of the easiest ways to get healthy protein in the morning. Try this smoothie with organic hemp seeds or nut butter for an added energy boost. This smoothie is perfect for breakfast, as a snack, post-workout energy booster or even as a sweet-tooth-satisfying dessert.
