Hey everyone!

So this is my go-to smoothie every morning as of late.

I'm currently trying to gain 10 lbs and this has been helping A LOT. It's packed with many vitamins, minerals, loads of protein and iron. At just under 1000 calories, it is really filling so it's perfect for breakfast. The high protein and L-Glutamine makes it great for an after workout smoothie to help repair muscle tissue.


  • 2 Manzano Bananas

  • 4 Tablespoons of Hemp Protein Powder

  • 1 Teaspoon of Fermented L-Glutamine Powder (optional)

  • 5-6 Medjool Dates (remove the pits)

  • 2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter (or almond butter)

  • 1 Teaspoon Maca Powder (Optional)

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ginger Powder (Optional - for better digestion)

  • 1- 1 1/2 Cups of Almond Milk (or any other nut milk) use more or less depending on how thick you like your smoothies

*Feel free to play around with the portions if the calories are too much for you. Less dates or less peanut butter will reduce many of the calories.

Blend thoroughly and enjoy your gains! 💪

I logged this recipe into MyFitnessPal for proof of the protein. See below.
