This is the smoothie that Tom Brady drinks pretty much every day


Should he excel in everything?

One of my highlights, of which there are few, as a Cincinnati Bengals fan dates back to their 2013 home game against the Tom-Brady-managed New England Patriots.

Less than two minutes from to play, the Bengals lead 13-6, Brady enters the field and the sky opens, triggering a torrential downpour over Paul Brown Stadium. Brady, squinting his squint through the wall of rain and an outstanding Bengals defense that day, throws a wobbly pass, presumably to Aaron Dobson, and the Bengals’ Adam “Pacman” Jones catches the interception, giving Brady his first loss of the season.

I never liked Tom Brady as a player (he’s just too well), but I can respect his fierce determination. Unless the forces of nature intervene, he is constantly focused, resolute, and ruthless.

With anyone excelling in their field, there is a curiosity as to how they do it. Especially Brady, who is now 44 and continues to play top-notch football (after not retiring).

With Brady, in particular, there’s a fascination with how he does the most mundane things – what he eats before a game, how he lifts heavy objects, and (at least according to the volume of potential research on Internet) how he makes his smoothies.

Luckily for us commoners, Brady has opened up about it on a day-to-day basis for the past few years, perhaps to help promote his personal TB12 brand. And as part of the initiative, Brady shared with the world what goes into his daily smoothie.

So I bought the bags and the boxes of ingredients. I ran the nutritional numbers. And, despite being an Orange and Black Bengals fan that I am, I even drank the smoothie itself.

Here’s everything you need to know about what goes into Tom Brady’s smoothie.

What are the ingredients in Tom Brady’s smoothie?

Alright, get ready.

Paul Kita

• 1/2 cup almond milk
• 1/2 cup of hemp milk
• 1 teaspoon of hemp seeds
• 1 teaspoon of chia seeds
• 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
• 1 tablespoon of almond butter
• 2 tablespoons of TB12 protein powder
• 1 cup frozen blueberries
• 1/2 cup frozen banana

es, it’s a little more complex than your traditional protein-powder-milk-peanut-butter smoothie, but it’s TOM BRADY we’re talking about here.

I counted my receipts and if you were to go out and buy all these ingredients directly, it would cost you $86.72. Hemp Hearts – at least the full size bag I could only find – aren’t cheap and Tom charges $40 a jar for his TB12 Plant Protein Powder.

That said, can’t you put a price on greatness?

Is Tom Brady’s smoothie healthy?

It’s solid.

Paul Kita

By my numbers, Tom Brady inhales 664 calories, 40g protein, 54g carbs (13g fiber), and 36g fat when he swallows one.

Although your body has a threshold for protein intake and Brady breaks it (kind of like that 2013 pass for Dobson, isn’t it?), at least he’s hitting the baseline.

Plus, 13 grams of fiber is no joke. Ten grams is what you want to hit at mealtime to help fill you up).

Blend in heart-healthy fats from almond butter and nuts and it’s not just a muscle-building smoothie, it’s a liquefied powerhouse of preventative nutrition.

Now, some people may argue that chia and hemp are special in that they provide omega fatty acids, the type found in fatty fish like salmon and known to significantly reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease. .

Like anyone who will tell you that the Cincinnati Bengals will have a record above .500 this 2021-22 season, don’t believe the hype.

Both chia and hemp contain omega fatty acids, but they are of the ALA type, not the DHA type. Studies have shown that they can support heart health.

Does Tom Brady’s smoothie taste good?

In fact – and surprisingly – yes.

Paul Kita

You wouldn’t think a smoothie made with two tasteless “milks,” weird seeds, and basic fruit, would taste good, but Brady, like many two-minute exercises, pulls it off.

Now okay, I didn’t buy Tom’s TB12 Plant Based Protein Powder and instead used a similar Pea Based Protein Powder that I already had on hand. (I couldn’t justify giving Brady more money, sorry.) But that work.

Except I noticed something was wrong – something that I realized could instantly make it so much better – and something that Brady overlooked for obvious reasons.
