I wake up looking forward to this smoothie! It tastes like dessert, but is loaded with complete protein, healthy fats and carbs, amino acids, and plenty of vitamins and minerals.
Vegan and gluten-free, this will keep you full and energized for hours.
Makes 1 smoothie
8 oz. nut milk (Almond, Soy, Hemp, Flax, Cashew, Coconut milk)
2 Tbsp organic almond butter, smooth
1 serving of Protein Plus Superfood Powder or Chocolate Vegan Protein Powder
1/2-1 tsp. Life Transfusion Liquid Mineral Complex
1 fresh or frozen banana
1 Tbsp chia, flax, or hemp seeds
dash of vanilla
dash of nutmeg
4-8 ice cubes (to taste)
In the blender, add dairy-free milk, protein powder, chia, hemp and/or flax seeds (always grind flax seeds before using.) Add the banana and almond butter and blend until smooth, adding more milk as needed to keep the blade moving. Add ice, and blend until smooth.
Pour into a glass, and top with a sprinkling of cacao nibs or chopped nuts.
