Hey guys! This week it’s all about fruit…I can’t wait to share with you some fruiti-licious delights with you!
Starting with my new favourite smoothie…
Which is LOADED with amazing superfoods…essentially, I think this is what superheros drink every day. I had this after a killer cardio workout and this drink was awesome for recovery. It’s also vegan.
It’s got all this delicious goodness in there…
…So to feel awesome like a superhero, drink this for breakfast!
Charissa’s Favourite Superfood Smoothie
- ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
- ½ cup organic, wild blueberries, frozen
- 1/3 cup organic strawberries, frozen
- ½ avocado
- 1 tsp. organic flaxseed
- 1 handful organic spinach
- 100g berry yogurt (1 small container)
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 scoop Vega Sports Protein*
- 1 scoop greens superfood
- 4 ice cubes
*Or whatever protein powder you like using.
Blend all that superhuman goodness up and enjoy!
I love using Vega Sport protein powder and totally recommend it. So far, it’s my favourite protein powder – as far as nutrition and taste. The only thing I don’t like about it…is it’s very expensive. However, you’re getting REAL nutrition, superfoods, and even greens in this vegan protein powder…not just protein.
Nutritional Info (without protein powder or greens powder): Cals: 404, Fat: 26g, Carbs: 38g, Fibre: 15.5g, Sugars: 16g, Protein: 12g Calories (and fat) mostly come from the avocado, and the counts may vary depending on the kind of yogurt or brands you use.
Sadly, I’m almost out of it (sniff). On the happy side, the folks from Vega sent me some samples to try their new Vega One, so sometime this week I’ll do a review and give you a recipe!
So now I’m going to get a protein shake together and grab my flip-flops, because I’m off to the beach to play volleyball with friends. Yes! Volleyball makes my world go round!
What’s your favourite superfood to put in smoothies? Are you familiar with Vega?
