Healthy Breakfast Milkshakes

POSTED March 30th AT 8:29pm



We usually drink these protein packed milkshakes for breakfast, still this filling snack can be an enjoyed anytime. Quinoa is one of the rare plant foods that is still considered a complete protein. Meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids. In addition to the protein, quinoa also contains fiber, magnesium and iron.

I love quinoa, however my kids do not! So I am always looking for ways to sneak it into a meal. This milkshake is an easy way to get a serving of this high protein food into picky eaters.

 


Ingredients

·      1 cup-Milk

·      ½ cup-Quinoa cooked

·      ½ cup-Plain Greek Yogurt

·      ¼ tsp.- Vanilla

·      1 tsp.-Honey (optional)

·      ¼ cup- raspberries (or 1 tbsp. - Cocoa for a chocolate milkshake)

·      2-3- Ice cubes

·       

Directions

1.     Add all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. You have to blend a little longer then you would normally to make sure the quinoa is broken down.  But once its smooth it’s completely undetectable.

2.     Serve and enjoy! Simple and delicious.
