The 3-Ingredient smoothie perfect for lazy days (or every day)

I've never been a smoothie person. The prep work has always seemed daunting and time-consuming, and they've never kept me as full as my typical quick morning go-to, oatmeal. But as I've gotten back into focusing on health and fitness (i.e. "Wedding Day Wellness" has kicked into high gear), I've been experimenting more with combinations that fit my routine and lifestyle. Basically, I need something quick and easy that doesn't leave me hangry at 10:30 in the morning. Enter the 3-ingredient smoothie:

What's inside:

  • 1/2-3/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 cup frozen mixed fruit (I buy a pre-mixed variety from the frozen food section)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
Protein powder is the secret to feeling and staying full throughout the morning - especially if you start the day with a workout. It's the first thing to go into the blender, otherwise I find it doesn't get thoroughly mixed in with the rest of the ingredients. After that, you can toss the rest in as you like and mix things up for about a minute.

Using frozen fruit creates a pretty thick, shake-like consistency. If you prefer something a little thinner, add more almond milk or try fresh fruit instead!

What's your go-to lazy day smoothie?
