The protein from the milk in this smoothie increases energy by its metabolism-boosting effect, Kleiner says. “It’s also rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and potassium, which supports nerve conduction and muscle contraction and enables you to think more clearly and move more easily.”

Bonus: Cinnamon not only adds warm, sweet flavor, but this spice has also been shown to keep blood sugar levels in check by helping the body burn carbs for fuel.


  • 1/2 cup soy or almond milk
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 2 tablespoons (1 scoop) vanilla whey protein isolate powder
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 large pinch ground ginger
  • 5 to 8 ice cubes



Place all ingredients together into a blender and blend until frothy and smooth.
