I love smoothies & shakes! I make smoothies with Vega One, Vega Energizing Smoothie or hemp protein powder for meals, and simpler smoothies & shakes for snacks. They are quick, easy, and portable: perfect for quick breakfast before a workout or meal before work. And the best thing? Infinite possibilities!

Here are a few smoothies that I’ve made in the past couple of weeks.

Mocha Banana Frappe
Frozen banana slices
4 ice cubes
2 tbsp Starbucks Hot Cocoa Powder Mix
Original Coconut Dream (non-dairy milk)
Cold coffee
Jem and I shared this for an afternoon treat! We didn’t intend it to taste like banana, but it was still really good.

Carob Peppermint Green Smoothie
1 handful frozen baby kale
Frozen banana slices
Frozen pineapple chunks
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp ground flax
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
2 tbsp carob powder (or cocoa)
1 serving (30g) hemp protein powder
Unsweetened almond milk

Hemp Protein Powder

Before milk & blending.

Greens + chocolate never makes a pretty smoothie, but tastes great!

LOVE this cup!

Spiced Tropical Smoothie
1 serving (1 scoop) Tropical Vega Energizing Smoothie
Frozen mango, pineapple, & banana
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
Pinch nutmeg
Pinch cloves
1 tbsp hemp hearts
Unsweetened coconut milk (I mean the stuff in cartons sold for drinking, not the cans)
I really liked the combination of sweet tropical fruits paired with spices. And I love the pretty yellow colour of this one!

Do you use any protein or meal replacement powders, and what do you think of the ones you’ve tried?

Have you tried Vega?
You should! In addition to the Vega One, and Vega Energizing Smoothie, I also use Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator.

Do you have a favourite smoothie recipe, ingredient, or flavour combination?
