a smoothie kind of week

I’ve had smoothie’s on the brain all week!  Even with the cold and rainy weather in Boston, I’ve been taking a smoothie with me everyday as a mid-morning snack.  They work great to tide me over to lunch…and give me some extra protein, fiber, and other nutrients that I am craving.

Chocolate Banana Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 4 tbsp chocolate hemp protein powder
  • 2 tbsp flaxseeds
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 3 tbsp oats

This was one thick smoothie, but it tasted great!

Mango Banana Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup mango
  • 1 cup pineapple
  • 1 scoop vanilla sun warrior protein powder
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp pepitas
  • 1 heaping tbsp flaxseeds

This tasted delicious!!!

Berry-licious Smoothie

  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 cup hemp milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen berries (cherries, blueberries, raspberries)
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 tsp honey
  • shake of cinnamon

Sometimes I like my smoothies very fruity and others I love more rich and creamy.  The beauty of a smoothie, is that you can make it any way you want!

They can contain just a few simple ingredients, or can be more complex to enjoy as a meal.

YUM!
