Butterfly Pea Protein Smoothie

Who says you can't have a milkshake in the morning?? 

We all have that inner child that gets a little jolt of excitement when seeing a colorful frozen beverage topped with whipped cream, sprinkles, and a fun straw. 

Who wouldn't want that every day?! 

But then we think about our health, or let's be honest, our waistline. Probably better to stay away from those beautiful, delicious, happiness-inspiring milkshakes right?? 

WRONG!!

We made this wonderful cup of happiness using all healthy ingredients (well maybe not the whipped cream) that will give you all the kick you need to get to the gym or living room for your morning workout! Best of both worlds! 

We used butterfly Pea powder to not only give it a fun happy color, but also for antioxidant benefits similar to green tea! 

Feel free to customize the recipe below to whatever you have in your freezer, but the vanilla protein powder banana combo really gives this the milkshake feel!! Using a frozen banana will make it extra creamy and thick!
