High-Protein Beet Smoothie

This Chocolate Protein Smoothie Makes the Perfect Weight-Loss Breakfast

Smoothies for breakfast can absolutely help you lose weight, but only if they follow the low-calorie, high-fiber, high-protein formula. And guess what? For your smoothie-sipping pleasure, this naturally sweet and creamy breakfast fits the bill to a T. At 400 calories, this smoothie offers 12.5 grams of filling fiber, and a whopping 34.5 grams of protein.

Why beets? Why not? Their vibrant color lets you know they're bursting with immune-boosting antioxidants. They offer fiber, protein, calcium, and tons of potassium. Add in some baby kale for extra fiber and a boost of vitmans A, K, and C, some bueberries for even more fiber and their ability to diminish belly fat, and a little banana for even more potassium. Chocolate protein powder and metabolism-boosting cinnamon add extra sweetness, and the almond milk ups the calcium levels. Finish the ingredients list off with shelled hemp seeds, which are a great source of both omega fatty acids and protein.

As if the health benefits weren't enough, this smoothie just looks so gorgeous! It's sure to brighten your mood and give your regular ol' green smoothie a run for its money.
