Smoothies are a perfect way to start off a busy morning, and this super berry smoothie is no exception.

Breakfast will be ready in about 2 seconds flat (well, okay… maybe 5 minutes) and you’re out the door with a travel mug full of nutrients. Can’t beat that with a stick!

Super Berry Smoothie in a clear glass.

Lately, I’ve been revisiting the idea of using protein powders in smoothies for the simple reason of convenience. Sometimes I don’t have time to peel that hard-boiled egg before I head out the door. I know that sounds crazy, but I think we’ve all been there. Those days when you swear on somebody’s grave that just breathing one breath in the wrong direction will make you later than you’ve ever been. You know what I’m talking about, right? I seem to be having more and more of those days lately, so I’ve started relying more and more on protein powder again.

Not that there is anything wrong with it per se, but let’s face it. Protein doesn’t come from nature in powder form. So I really struggle with this one. What are your thoughts on protein powder?

    jlp – sounds wonderful!

  3. graciouspantry says:

    Kim – that’s a great source of protein!

  4. graciouspantry says:

    Melissa – In my experience, whey powder is the best for flavor and texture. I get mine at whole foods. If you can find 100% pure whey powder, that’s the one to go with. My Whole Foods stopped carrying it so now I get their brand in the package.

  5. graciouspantry says:

    Cbmg – I found one that is pretty decent. It’s the Whole Foods brand.

  6. graciouspantry says:

    Katherine – Agreed!

  7. graciouspantry says:

    Chrys – Interesting! I would imagine the oats would expand a bit in your tummy as liquid is absorbed which would also help fill you up.

  8. graciouspantry says:

    Cec – Look for 100% pure whey powder. I had to settle with a different kind in a package that is the Whole Foods inshore brand because they stopped carrying the one I used to use. I was sad about that, but settled for the next best thing.

  9. graciouspantry says:

    Cec – Sounds good! I think the dry oats would fill you up a lot since they would absorb liquids and expand in your tummy. Great way to fill up!

  10. graciouspantry says:

    Hetty – I hope he enjoys it!

  11. graciouspantry says:

    Cass – Sounds good!

  12. I always put ground up quick oats in mine, excellent way to add more protein and fiber. It doesn’t change the taste just the texture a bit.

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Jenny – Sounds good!

  13. graciouspantry says:

    Erin – I just have to say that this is one of this things were you sit back and say, “well duh! why didn’t I think of that????”

    Thanks for the link!

  14. graciouspantry says:

    OF – Yes, I’m just now starting to install the pin button on my posts. Thanks!

  15. graciouspantry says:

    Kristin – You can’t beat the benefits of chia. I highly recommend it! The bag may be a bit on the pricy side, but it lasts a while because you are only using 1 or 2 tablespoons at a time. So go for it!

    I love Manitoba Harvest. They have excellent hemp powder. But like you, I got that grass clipping flavor that I just didn’t want to add to this recipe. I guess you pick your battles where this stuff is concerned.

  16. graciouspantry says:

    Shelley – Let me know how you like it!

  17. graciouspantry says:

    e4hand – That’s why I love smoothies. I love that they take away most of my cravings. Glad you enjoyed it!

  18. graciouspantry says:

    Steph – Thanks!

  19. graciouspantry says:

    I just toss them in. I never soak them first.

  20. I’ve checked out a ton of protein powders, and Smoothie King’s Gladiator protein seems to be the most nutritious/tastiest out there. It’s great…vanilla or chocolate…maybe strawberry too? No sugar or carbs and 45 g of protein. If you’re forced to supplement, it’s worth a try.
    Thanks for your yummy recipe!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Hmm! I’ve never heard of that brand. I’ll check it out. Thanks!

  21. where do u find chia seeds?

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Jennie – Many health food stores carry them or you can order from Amazon.com

  22. graciouspantry says:

    Janet – Sounds good!

  23. Cassinstru says:

    I can’t wait to try the berry smoothie the color is so beautiful!

  24. Hotheather2004 says:

    In England eggs found at the store are much more fresh then those in American supermarkets. If you want a boiled egg that doesn’t stick to the shell you have to keep the eggs in your fridge for about a week before you boil them. If they are eggs purchased straight from a farmer I recomend 2 weeks.

      Interesting! Thanks!
