Finally Something with Staying Power

Hello Friends!

Are you or your loved one a little cranky or sluggish first thing in the morning?  Well we have a tasty smoothie recipe that will not only give them a pop of energy but has enough protein to give them “staying power” throughout the morning so they aren’t hungry!

This is also a great starter smoothie for those who are just getting introduced to healthy smoothies.  There is an antioxidant punch from the berries, potassium and creaminess from the banana and complete protein branch chain amino acids from the protein powder!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk

2 scoops of Epic Vanilla Protein or Warrior Force Vanilla Protein

1 cup of organic frozen blueberries

1/2 ripe banana, peeled and cut into chunks (best if the banana is frozen)

1 packet of powdered stevia

3/4 cup of ice cubes

Optional Add-ins:

1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

1 Tablespoon of Maca Powder

1 Tablespoon of Greens Mix (We like Vitamineral Green)

Directions:

Place all ingredients and “add-ins” into a Vita-mix or strong blender and blend for one minute.  Pour into a tall glass or mug for breakfast on the go!

Enjoy!

Have a glorious day!

Hugs,

Donna and Daniela

    Cool – that’s my smoothie of choice with the addition of a smidge of coconut milk and liquid stevia instead of the powdered. Mike even had one last night and liked it. We are making progress.
