This is a great way to start to the day or can be a perfect mid afternoon snack especially if you are heading out for busy afternoon of running around with the kids.

There are 5 components to building a successful smoothie:

Liquid: 1/2 cup of almond milk, rice milk, coconut milk or water
Fruit: 1/2 banana or mango and 1/4 cup frozen berries -any will do
Greens: 1/2 cup of spinach or kale
Protein booster: 2 tbsp of hemp hearts, 15 grams of protein powder, 1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt

Note about protein powders: typically I suggest avoiding whey and soy protein powders so that leaves vegan powders most often made with rice and chick pea protein blends, these are easier to digest but it may take a few attempts to get your perfect smoothie!

Fat booster: 1 tbsp of almond butter or peanut butter, 1/4 avacodo or 1 tbsp of coconut oil

You may need to add a little more water to get your desired consistency. Don’t be afraid to play around with different ingredients within each component, this is how you will find the smoothie that you love.

Blend and enjoy!
