Reese Witherspoon — Green Smoothie

She also adds coconut water and almond butter.
J.Lo — Protein Smoothie
Maybe this is the secret to why she looks so radiant and identical to how she looked decades ago.

The singer and actress says that the recipe is ideal for gaining muscle mass while losing weight.
Kristen Bell — Matcha and Pea Protein Milk
Move over almond milk and cashew milk — pea protein milk is the latest dairy-free alternative that you need to try ASAP. A matcha latte contains all nine essential amino acids. It’s one of the only complete protein sources, as opposed to incomplete veggie-based sources of protein like beans and grains. Matcha tea is caffeinated and also high in antioxidants.
Jessica Biel — Paleo Pancakes
If you were wondering if pancakes can be healthy, the answer is yes! Jessica Biel upgrades her with a gluten, dairy and wheat-free paleo version that’s packed with coconut and a healthy swap for peanut butter — Biel suggests almond or cashew. The breakfast helps promote better digestion and lifted energy. Just maybe keep an eye on how much syrup you pour on top and perhaps swap for honey.
Gabby Douglas — Oatmeal with Banana
