While people generally need varying levels of protein based on their body composition, weight and daily activities, if you're gearing up for a big fitness competition or trying to bulk up a little, it's guaranteed that you'll want to eat a good amount of high-quality protein each day. Start your morning with a high-protein breakfast like this banana almond protein smoothie. It has different types of proteins to ensure that you work your way toward getting each of the essential amino acids each day. Here's the delightful recipe:

Banana oatmeal almond high-protein breakfast shake


  • 1 whole banana
  • 2/3 cup milk, any type
  • 1/2 cup cooked oatmeal
  • 6 ice cubes
  • 1 scoop Naturade Total Soy, Vanilla
  • 1/4 cup almonds, chopped

Add all of the ingredients to a blender and mix until smooth. If your almonds are whole, you might want to do a rough chop before blending them with the other ingredients. You can also use walnuts, pecans or any other type of nut for a punch of healthy fats, fiber and protein. Also, the oatmeal does not necessarily have to be cooked – in fact, some people prefer it in its crunchy "raw" state. Do whatever works for you.
