Seasonal Green Smoothie With Vega One Shake and Pumpkin Spice

I tried vega one chocolate shake and with was delicious with greens. I make an organic hemp-brazil nut milk and made a smoothie with granola, lots of greens and vega one shake. It was a superfood shake which acted as a good snack (or “meal replacement”).

The vega one comes in individual pack sizes, so it’s convenient to just take one packet, blend it into a smoothie and rest assured that you are meeting all of your baseline nutritional needs. Much better than taking a vitamin supplement.

It’s sure to add some Light to your life (the secret is greens).

Add some berries for beauty (I have mixed berries of blueberry, raspberry, blackberry and strawberry). I added hemp protein powder (for that “boost”)… And covered it in flax milk (my new favorite unsweetened vegan milk). Also: kale.

Add a hidden serving of raw cocao nibs, and blend away.

This magic can not be made on an ordinary blender… This smoothie is why I love the Vitamix.

Smoothie recipe: mixed berries, hemp protein powder, flax milk, kale, raw cacao.

Good Morning Green Smoothie

This is what you drink after returning from hot yoga after getting up at 6 am to do so.

(This could also be called “Green Smoothie #2″, because “Green Smoothie #1″ is what I had BEFORE going to hot yoga. It simply included baby spinach, almond milk, and a banana.)

Good Morning Green Smoothie:

Have a great day!

(I had ginger Kombucha before biking home from yoga… and now this smoothie. Health deluxe. The quote on my Kombucha, which I impart to you now was this:
