Looking for a way to get a quick and easy energy boost? Try my go-to Energy-Boosting Smoothie, which I "turbocharge" with a special secret ingredient!
It helps me stay energized and focused all day long so that I'm able to cross off everything on my to-do list and still have energy to spend time with my family at the end of the day. Plus, it's absolutely delicious!
So, what makes this smoothie so tasty and effective? First, my Energy-Boosting Smoothie contains healthy energy-providing protein such as plant-based yogurt, chia seeds, and a very special ingredient: Total Energy.
Total Energy is a supplement that contains the adaptogenic herbs ashwagandha, rhodiola, and schisandra berry—all known to help boost energy levels and reduce fatigue. [1, 2] And while it isn’t required for this Energy-Boosting Smoothie, I definitely notice a difference when I include it!
But this smoothie isn’t just energy-boosting; it’s also delicious and filling, featuring fibrous, satiety-supporting rolled oats and the natural sweetness of bananas, strawberries, and dates.
Between the flavor profile and health benefits, I like to drink the Energy-Boosting Smoothie for breakfast to help get my day off to the right start with a productive morning and energy that carries me through to the evening. Plus, it’s a quick to throw together, making it a perfect breakfast option on hectic school mornings!
