My favorite protein powder for smoothies is chocolate…but since we have been doing a lot of smoothies I have been trying to switch it up.  I decided to grab a jar of the Vega Vanilla Protein & Greens the last time it was on sale at our local Earthfare.  While I like to use fresh greens in my smoothies, this is a great options with 2 servings of greens included in the powder. This is my favorite smoothie combination that I have created using this powder.
