Easy, Filling Breakfast: 3 Smoothies Using Vanilla Protein Powder

Breakfast time can be stressful. We are always in a rush to get out the door and on our way and sometimes we even skip breakfast all together!

But skipping breakfast isn’t healthy.

In fact, a study from Harvard School of Public Health revealed skipping breakfast may increase your chances of coronary heart disease. In some cases, skipping breakfast leads you to eat more later in the day exacerbating metabolic change and putting you at risk for heart disease. 

According to Harvard School of Public Health author Leah Cahill, “Skipping breakfast may lead to one or more risk factors, including obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes, which may in turn lead to a heart attack over time.”

So the question is, how do we make breakfast time easier and reduce the chances of people skipping it?

VIIVA answers this with their quick and easy breakfast collection.

The Breakfast Collection is focused around VIIVA’s Organic Plant Base, a vegan-friendly protein powder. This powder can be mixed with your preferred milk to make a delicious protein shake. It can be customized by adding in additional VIIVA breakfast products, which we call “kiiks”, or by adding in any fruits and veggies you have in your fridge.

Adding VIIVA’s Organic Plant Base to a smoothie makes a much more filling breakfast than your average shake. It contains 20 grams of plant-based protein to help you stay full for hours and to give you energy to conquer the day.

The following three recipes were developed by Eazy Peazy Mealz using VIIVA’s delicious vanilla plant base. Using many ingredients you may already have in your kitchen, these recipes are quick, easy, and healthy!
