Summer season has officially begun, and with it comes the desire to drink all things cool and refreshing! Whether it’s a tall glass of chilled Nimbu Pani or a Kulchad full of Masala Chaas, there are so many summer drinks which rejuvenate us from within. Hydrating the body is important right from when you wake up to when you sleep, which is why it is important to include healthy drinks in the summer diet right from the very first meal of the day. If you are looking for the perfect summer breakfasts which will kick-start your day and give your body a much-needed protein fix, we have some recipes you can try!
From oats to flaxseed and more, there are so many ingredients you can include in your healthy breakfast smoothie to make it enriched with protein.

The presence of protein in meals also regulates the production of the hunger hormone ghrelin, thus making it ideal for those watching their weight. These three protein-rich smoothie recipes are quick and simple to whip up for the first meal of the day.
