Protein smoothie with olive oil—two recipes

Protein smoothie with olive oil—two recipes

Make your morning routine a bit *extra* by adding EVOO to your protein smoothies.

Some people like to start their day with a spoonful of olive oil and others just swirl it on their breakfast for the extra flavour and nutrition. And since the team over at Citizens of Soil is definitely the latter, this is how we choose to start our mornings—with an antioxidant-packed smoothie!

The idea for this comes from our founder, Michael, who starts every single day with a version of this smoothie (packed with B Corp certified brands). But the recipe itself is from our friends over at Form nutrition who made sure that the two recipes below are as nutritionally balanced as possible!

    Here's the method:

    Makes one portion

    • Simply combine all of the ingredients in a high speed blender and enjoy!
