Craft Your Healthy Habits: Power Smoothie

Back to the Super Foods. Green smoothies,  from Kim Snyder, have made their way into my daily routine.  The recipe really makes a huge quantity, so I take it to work and have it throughout the day.

This morning, however, I opted for the protein smoothie. It's "heavier" smoothie than the green one with a little less flavor. But not terribly bad, even though it looks kinda bad.


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk or water or a 50/50 combination.
  • 3-4 tbs hemp or brown rice protein powder. (I use rice protein)
  • 1-2 tbs Chia seeds
  • 1/2 frozen acai smoothie packet (sold in the frozen food section, with other assorted fruit items)
  • Steva packet to sweeten.
