Feeling a little sluggish and groggy? Maybe instead of reaching for yet another cup of coffee, you should turn to some protein or superfoods for extra energy. Coffee might keep your eyes open, but after a certain point, you’ll just feel jittery and exhausted at the same time. If you aren’t a person who enjoys whipping up elaborate veggie-heavy meals or don’t have the time to even think about cooking, you should check out powder smoothie add-ins. These low-stress add-ins will save you time, while giving your body the minerals and vitamins that your body needs to thrive. 

We rounded up the best powder smoothie add-ins for you. These powders can be added to ice cold, almond milk, regular milk, ice and your favorite blend of fruits and veggies. It’s all up to you and your personal preferences. After all of your ingredients are added, all that you need to do is put them in your blender. The resealable smoothie bags will tell you how much powder to add to your concoction. The three options we picked boast natural ingredients. Two are superfood combos that tick all of the boxes, while another is a vegan-based protein powder.
