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.
- handful of fresh or frozen strawberries
- 1 cup of coconut milk (if using canned, use half cup + a half cup of water)
- 1 heaping scoop of Vega Vanilla Protein & Greens Powder
- 2 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1 Tbsp raw cocoa nibs
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- dump all the ingredients into a high speed blender. enjoy!
