Ingredients

  • One scoop of plant based protein powder (my favorites are always chocolate and either Garden of Life Raw Chocolate Plant Protein Powder or Garden of Life Raw Fit Protein Powder)  
  • One scoop of unflavored Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
  • Handful of baby kale
  • 1/2 tablespoon of chia seeds (I buy these at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 tablespoon of hemp hearts  (I buy these at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds  (I buy these at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 heaping spoonful of raw, unsalted almond butter and cashew butter (feel free to switch these up to whatever you like best!)
  • Two large handful of berries or fruit of your choice (fresh or frozen is fine, my favorites are strawberries and mixed berries)
  • 26 ice cubes (2 if you use frozen fruit and 6 if you don’t use any frozen fruit)
  • 24 cups of unsweetened plant based, non-dairy beverage (depends on how big your smoothie is – I use Unsweetened Almond Milk)
  • Dash of cinnamon 

Instructions

Blend for about 1 minute using the blender of your choice (I saved up and bought this Vitamix for myself last year and it is life changing!). If you have a Vitamix, press the smoothie preset button and you are all set to go! I also have this Nutribullet Pro 900 which it great for a “to-go” shake. I recommend always using the larger oz. cup if you own and use a single serving smoothie blender. 

You will hear me mention often that berries can stain your teeth, so I always use these reusable silicone straws when drinking smoothies. 


Notes

This usually makes around two full glasses! If I’m in a rush and don’t have time to make anything else for breakfast, then I drink the entire thing for a filling, satisfying breakfast. If I make something else on the side, my husband gets a glass too :).
