My day started at 5am as per usual. I got up to teach a class, trained a few clients, and then I stopped by the new house to fix up a few things. I’ve got some time now before my evening clients start coming, so I’m sitting at my mechanic’s waiting for him to change my headlight bulb that blew out and to rebalance my tires. I knew it would be a busy day so I prepared my lunch before leaving, which is this new concoction I mixed together! I didn’t expect it to taste THIS good so I just HAVE to share it with y’all! Being my own boss and having the internet right at my fingertips makes blogging anywhere possible 🙂
This smoothie is full of fibre, antioxidants, protein, and natural flavours to satisfy your tastebuds! With just the right mix of carbs from the veggie and fruit, plant based proteins, and healthy fats, it’s very easily digested and absorbed by your body and it balances blood sugar levels to keep you fuller longer!
Here are the main ingredients:
What you need:
1 tbsp pure almond butter
1 cup raw broccoli (or spinach, kale, chard, collards)
handful of baby carrots
1 scoop of vegan protein powder. I used the Progressive Brown Rice protein, vanilla flavour. It is GMO free, organic, includes sprouted brown rice for maximal nutrients and absorption, and only 80 cals per scoop with natural stevia sweetener
1-2 cups of water
optional: fingernail sized fresh ginger (optional) to aid with digestion and add a bit of a kick – I LOVE ginger!
What to do:
Place all ingredients in a blender, mish-mash ’em up, and enjoy!
Let me know how it is! Please share with your friends and family – it would be a huge disservice to keep this to ourselves 🙂
