This is a quick, simple, and delicious breakfast shake! It’s my go-to at least twice a week. For me sometimes a big breakfast doesn’t sound appetizing early in the morning, even though I know it’s the most important meal of the day! This was the reason I started making this shake in the mornings. It’s much easier for me to drink my breakfast when my appetite is low.
Those who regularly eat breakfast in the morning tend to have better weight control compared to breakfast skippers. This is likely a result of reduced hunger and cravings throughout the day, which generally leads to healthier food choices. Although skipping breakfast does result in a calorie deficit early in the day, usually by the end of the day breakfast skippers have consumed more calories for lunch, dinner, and snacks to void that deficit plus more.
If you find yourself dreading breakfast then this might be a good solution for you too! Its also pretty awesome that it only takes a couple minutes to blend together and its like having dessert for breakfast! And as an added bonus, when you regularly eat a substantial breakfast your body then expects that meal every morning and over time your breakfast appetite will grow!
