Mango Pineapple Kale Smoothie

FullSizeRender-3

I recently bought a plant-based protein powder with a flavour that I hadn’t had before, Coconut Almond, and this was the first smoothie I tried it in… it was sweet and delicious!

The protein powder I used is Vega One’s All-In-One Nutritional Shake. This plant based protein powder is vegan, gluten-free, has no added sugar, and is made with whole food ingredients. A single scoop has 20g of complete protein, 6 servings of greens, and is full of antioxidants, probiotics, fibre, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Beautiful, delicious and healthy. This drink reminds me of when I was a slushy obsessed kid, and how I often couldn’t choose between two flavours, so I would just get them both. It always tasted better mixed anyway 🙂

Watermelon isn’t the only ingredient in this smoothie that is great for your body; it also contains nutrient packed blueberries, hemp hearts and pumpkin seeds! All ingredients are listed below…

Berry Beautiful Smoothie

When food has such a naturally beautiful, vibrant colour, you know that it’s good for you! This smoothie isn’t just easy on the eyes, it’s the full package, loaded with yummy flavours and health benefits!

The colour, taste and benefits come from using a mixture of berries, including blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. As I have mentioned before, combining different types of berries is even better than just using one because they enhance each others antioxidant capacity! The antioxidant capacity of various fruits individually has been found to be less than the same amount of a mixture of fruits.
