smoothie

Here is my favorite recipe:

About 2 cups of unsweetened almond milk (I like Califia toasted coconut and almond milk) and water mixed 1/2 and 1/2.  You can sub ice for water if you like a thick smoothie.  I like it thin so I use water.

heaping Tablespoon almond butter

1/2 cup frozen blueberries

2 scoops Vital Proteins’ Dark Chocolate & Blackberry Collagen Peptides

very large handful of power greens (I like the power greens that have shredded carrots to get green and orange)

Variations:

  •  1/4 frozen banana (more if you want it sweet and are not watching carbs)
  • tsp maca (to help support balancing hormones)
  • probiotic powder (this is great to add if you want to cut down on pills you are swallowing)
  • 1 drop of food grade peppermint essential oil ( for a mint variation)

Blend in a high speed blender.  This smoothie is deliciously mildly sweet and has a flavor that keeps me trying to figure out.  I can’t really explain how obsessed I am but you MUST try it!  It keeps me full all morning and has really changed my morning routine for the better.  It has greens/orange, blues, yellow colors and it packs so much nutrition is one smoothie with healthy fats, collagen, probiotics, and hyaluronic acid that you just can’t make a better smoothie!   Start your morning off right with this smoothie, have a protein and veggie filled lunch and supper and you are on your way to heath, vitality and weight loss!
