Protein Rich Green Smoothie

Protein Rich Green Smoothie

I would normally say that the protein naturally found in a green smoothie is all you need but the harder I train for races the more I realize that in certain cases- added protein to our green smoothie is a good thing. 

There are many choices you can make that do not include a protein powder.

Here are a few:

  1. Hemp seeds
  2. Pumpkin seeds
  3. Almond butter
  4. Chia seeds

Consume protein within 30 minutes of your workout to provide needed amino acids to muscles. 

 

 

If you prefer a protein powder I recommend Vega Essentials Vegan Protein Powder Chocolate. It is one of the best tasting protein powders I have tasted. 

Let's add it to our green smoothie right now!

Ingredients:

1 romaine heart
1 scoop of Vega chocolate protein powder
2 frozen bananas
2 cups of water (more or less for your desired thickness)

Blend the greens, protein powder, and 1 cup of the water until smooth. Add the bananas and rest of water and blend. 1 qt serving.

OR... Add more bananas and you have a protein rich bowl of banana nice cream.
