Smoothie Delights

Remember that every single green drink you create is an investment in your quality of life — now and always.—Kris Carr

My name is Kimberly and I’m a green smoothie junkie. Smoothies make for a delicious meal and/or snack. Truth be told, they help balance out the copious amounts of vegan cheese I consume.

When Naked Nutrition reached out and asked if I’d like to sample their vegan protein powders, I couldn’t resist. While I typically sprinkle a protein powder into my smoothie making, I’m never a big fan.

There’s usually an aftertaste, a horrible flavoring (yuck, vanilla), or it somehow alters the overall consistency of the smoothie. I tried Naked’s Pea Protein (featured in this video) and their Rice Protein (used in today’s smoothie) and love both.

First, their packaging is darling. I know, I know, don’t judge a book by its cover, but I love the simplicity.

Next, there’s no taste to the protein powder and the consistency is super fine so there’s no grainy nuggets found inside my smoothie.

Basically, I’m a new fan.

When choosing a protein powder to add to your smoothies, skip the dairy options as there are so many wonderful plant-based, protein-elicious options out there.

Here’s my basic recipe:

  • 1-2 handfuls of spinach
  • frozen fruit
  • banana
  • avocado
  • chia seed
  • almond milk
  • scoop of protein powder

After whipping it up in a blender, I pour it into a Mason jar and head into the office with a nutrient dense treat . . . that just happens to be bright green.

Happy smoothie making! x
