Mixed Berry-Banana Protein Smoothie

Usually, for breakfast, I like to have either oatmeal with fruit, or eggs with toast and fruit. But on the days when I’m in a rush or want something cool and refreshing, then I have this protein smoothie. It keeps me filled for at least two to three hours, and has plenty of fiber and protein. Since this smoothie is very well-balanced nutritionally, and has everything that you would need to replenish your body after a good workout, it can also be perfect as an after-workout snack. 

I had tried other combinations of breakfast smoothies before, but they could not keep me filled for very long. I came across this recipe on Dr. Oz’s website and tried it, and it worked out really well for me. Feel free to change any ingredient that you want considering your own tastes and give it a shot!
