Protein smoothies for breakfast: 3 recipes to try – Italian cuisine reinvented by Gordon Ramsay

You are also looking for protein shakes for breakfast? We offer you three to start the day full of energy, all based on milk or yogurt. Three recipes to celebrate World Milk Day, which falls on June 1st, established by FAO to celebrate this much loved food. In fact, a survey carried out by AstraRicerche for the Alto Adige Dairy Federation revealed that 7 out of 10 Italians drink it habitually, followed by lovers of yoghurt (69.5%) and cheese.

Protein breakfast smoothies with milk, yogurt and fruit

You will find the smoothie recipes at the end of the article, and as you will see they are all very simple: preparations that even in the morning – when you feel like doing very little – you can manage without effort. If you drink cow’s milk (or yogurt) they are perfect for a balanced and healthy first meal of the day since they have a good protein base (given by milk or yogurt), combined with the complex sugars of fruit.

Alto Adige milk

The recipes are suggested to us by the Alto Adige Dairy Federation, of which only the following producers are members rules that guarantee animal welfare and the protection of biodiversity. It is produced with the milk of cows that live between 2000 and 8000 meters above sea level, which feed on fresh grass and hay from the mountain pastures, and arrives on our tables following a pre-GMO production chain. Not only that, it’s very fresh: the milk is processed the same day, and for this reason it is particularly rich in vitamins, omega 3 and functional fats. Furthermore, following the same chain, many products such as yogurt, cheese, mozzarella and butter are created under the same brand.

The history of milk in South Tyrol

A centuries-old tradition: there are documents that prove that already in the 13th and 14th centuries in Alto Adige there were numerous “Schwaigen”, traditional farms dedicated to breeding and milk production. Fun fact: they paid taxes to the landowner in the form of cheese. And even today, as in the past, the sector is a fundamental driving force for the local economy. Dairies are a solid and important reality in the economy of Alto Adige, and in the last year they have provided employment to over 1300 people.
